Summary: It's true! I'm really happy with my purchase. That "all-around-happiness" package is absolutely what I was looking for. Forty years in the past I started that hobby -photography- with a great CANON A1 (which I still have in the basement). After having a break from photography of about 20 years I started recently with making picture using my smartphone.
Excerpt: The new A-77II is an outstanding camera and a great improvement over the A-77. Faster focus in low light conditions and much improved noise characteristics. Excellent object tracking for action. Great improvement in buffer for both jpgs and raw images. The new menu does require some readjustment in use.
Summary: Talk about a fantastic deal! I have to admit I was hesitant at first, thinking that this might be too good to be true, but I'm really satisfied with this bundle deal. The Sony A77 is rugged and bigger than my former Sony A65. I am excited to get out there and put it to work. Also, I expected the gear to be quite shoddy, especially the camera bag, but I was totally wrong. The red camera bag that comes with this bundle is pretty sick.

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.
