Buy a Sony NEX-6 instead for almost the same price. Price is a bit high for what you get.
This is a good camera, and just good. Don't get me wrong, it takes brilliant pictures and has great quality, but it lacks some features considering it's price range. You're better off spending a couple of hundred dollars more for the A6000. Here are my main gripes with this camera:
1. No electronic viewfinder
2. No mic input or headphone output
3. No 1080 x 60p video.
4. No hotshoe
The above factors wouldn't be much of a problem if this camera was priced around say $300-$350, but it's not worth buying in my opinion. You're better off buying last years Sony NEX-6 which is almost the same price (due to it's big price drop recently), but gives you way more and is in fact a better camera! The NEX-6 has a high resolution Electronic Viewfinder, allows 60p video, has both a pop up flash which bends backwards so you can bounce it off a ceiling and a standard hotshoe, and it's price is about the same!
The only advantage this camera has is the flip up screen which allows one to shoot video or take pictures of themselves. Overall, I'd buy the NEX-6 over this, or if you can afford it, buy the A6000.....
