Summary: I am writing this review from a true beginner's perspective. I have never owned a camera before but I knew that I wanted a camera that could take great pictures. I spent an obscene amount of time researching for 6 months while I was saving up for purchase.
Summary: I did a lot of homework on this and other comparable cameras. I chose this one because of the internal stabilizer (versus in the lens) and i'm really happy with the camera in all ways. Delivery was fast.
In some aspects that's the best camera in the market

Summary: PROS: 12 fps 24Mpix - still the best on the market; 60p full HD - I think still best on the market; In the body image stabilizer - works really fine, I sometimes manage to take pixel-sharp shots at 1/8 sec at f=40 mm (60mm equivalent!) or so.
Summary: I've waited six years to be able to afford a mid-sized high-end prosumer like this. I can't be more thrilled with this camera. I researched this camera and lusted over it since its release date. There is nothing disappointing about it.
Summary: I'm fairly new to Photography, being more enthusiastic about it for about a year now. This review is not technical at all. I'll use Leiman terms to describe the camera. This is however my 5th DSLR in one year. I've been upgrading and keeping my cameras for about 2 - 3 months each.
Good quality shots, but hampered by slow button response

Summary: My first impressions of my new Sony SLT-A99V, with Sony's 24-70 lens. It's big, heavy, but surprisingly comfortable to handle. So far, the photos have been good quality, but I have found two things that I do not like. 1. When in Auto-ISO mode, it picks ISOs that are too high.
Summary: I have had my a77 for about 6 months now and have no regret as a matter a fact 2 months ago I pick up my 2ed Sony a A57 as a back up. I feel that Sony is one the best DSLR on the market to invest in and I plan on purchasing the A99 next.
