Sensor Review
Introduction | Sony A3000 sensor performance: Leading edge performance | Sony A3000 vs Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 vs Canon EOS 100D: Serious challenger | Conclusion

With the SLR-like handgrip, viewfinder hump and controls, Sony is quite clearly challenging rival mirrorless models from Panasonic and Samsung. In terms of the sensor and IQ the A3000 performs very well indeed. As for the rest of specification and handling that’s another matter altogether, but there’s plenty to like and the price isn’t exorbitant.
