Sony Alpha SLT-A37
Competing models tend to be either older or feature-depleted models (such as lacking video capabilities) from Canon or Nikon or slightly more expensive. But at just under $500 from quite a few reputable retailers, the A37 is a fast modern dSLR with good photo quality.
The good: The Sony Alpha SLT-A37 offers some class-leading performance, along with a solid set of features and respectable photo quality.
The bad: The EVF looks dim, and the LCD is on the small side.
The bottom line: A good option if you're looking for something fast with a viewfinder and tilting LCD, the Sony Alpha SLT-A37 is a solid but not outstanding sub-$800 dSLR-style camera.
