Summary: The A77 was as advertised and more importantly everything on the camera was handy and well thought out by Sony. This camera along with the A99 show me that Sony is going to be an innovator and challenge the big two. The 16-50mm lens is amazing! Extremely sharp pics with good bokeh.
Summary: Upgraded my A350 and LOVE this camera! Wish I could have afforded the A99 right now, but maybe by next year. I know most people go with Cannon or Nikon, but this girl has been a Minolta/Sony girl since the 80's. Their equipment has never let me down - and some times it's taken quite a beating.
Summary: I am really glad I found this deal as I was about to push the button on a sony 65 package and then found Focus's deal couldnt find anything comperable within $500. they even sent me a better memory card then depicted. Also del was 4 days early!
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
8 April 2013
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'm not an expert, I'm just someone that loves photography and still learning. This is the best camera I have ever owned. I started out with an Olympus E420 and thought I would never change even though I have always loved Sony. I decided to upgrade and my first Sony was the A390.
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.
