Summary: I have had this camera now for four weeks. So far I really like it. I took a lot of pictures of a rodeo on the 4th of july at 12 frames/sec and Tamron 70-200 2.8 lens. Reviews of that particular lens have indicated it is slow to focus. On the A77m2 It was not slow at all. The camera just ripped and I had very few out of focus pictures. I took series of up to 15 pictures at high speed and nearly all of the photos were very sharp.
Summary: I just get it from my local Sony Store with my new camera, so I have not much time to experiment with the camera. This one is my upgrade from an Sony A37. The A77M2 looks great. I will update this review after experiment with the camera.
Summary: Upgraded from the Sony Alpha 55. Obviously, no comparison. The 77II has incredible auto focus capability. Bracking allows mucho flexibility for HDR experiments. Excellent build quality. I have a bag full of A-mount lenses from Carl Zeiss to vintage Minolta primes. Love the ability to mix and match many high quality lenses at relatively low cost. Try that with Nikon or Canon! ISO range is great does very well in low light.
Excerpt: Have put off buying a new camera for while, but need an upgrade from my A700, and boy am I glade I waited, so far all my test shots have come back grade. Camera does so ,much more than my A700 it will take a while to learn allit will do, and the 16 to 50 mm lens is great! The only complaint 7s the battery life , but with 4 spare batteries I wont mind a bit.
Summary: I have owned an A300, A350,A33 and own an A65, A77 and now the A77ii. The A77ii is wonderful camera. It fixes the few shortcomings the A77 had. The large buffer is a huge plus for the 12fps, much larger than the original A77. The improved ISO sensitivity is a nice improvement. The upgraded autofocus system is a fantastic plus and the tracking works very well. I use it mainly for wildlife photography and I'm very pleased with the camera.
Summary: Got this camera and the autofocus is excellent and the high iso is well improved. The iso is right up there with the d7100. I am a owner of the original a77 and this is quite an update. The only thing I can not stand is that they got rid of the autofocus assist lamp. It is now built into the on board flash only. You can not use it in low light without the flash and when it fires to focus several times it blinds the person whose picture you are taking.
Summary: I've owned the D7100 for about a year and I really like it. I'm not a professional photographer by any means. I consider myself a hobbyist who love to take beautiful photos. I tried out this camera at a local Best Buy and I totally fall in love with it. I'll compare the Sony A77 Mark II with all time favorite Nikon D7100. And keep in mind this review is from an amateur's point of view. + Both cameras have 24 megapixel and their sensors are also the same size.
