Read the full Sony Alpha SLT-A35 review

While attention is naturally drawn to the super-fast AF and continuous shooting abilities of the A35, what really impresses is overall image quality. Sony has made great strides with its Exmor sensors, and the result here is a camera that performs exceptionally well in low light, producing images with plenty of contrast and punch straight from the camera. The big question is whether you can live with the EVF and its inherent flaws. If you can then the A35 remains worthy of serious consideration.

What about the HDR feature? I use it all the time on my A55 where it stores one normal and one HDR picture, which enables me to select the best one afterwards and where i often end up selecting the HDR one, because the colors are so much better (though if any fastmoving object was in the scene i always opt for the normal picture).
Also the twilight mode is excellent for very dark scenes, again without fast moving objects, i have been using that in poorly lit places such as churches and saltmines (last holiday).
I think that it is serious flaw that one of the key selling points of this camera is left out of the review.
