Excerpt: With this product, competing companies making cameras really have to make an effort to beat this one. The camera itself offers a extrardinary beauty in its picture and really has a firm grasp in your hands.
Pros: Firm Grisp, Light, Easily Controlled, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I wasn't prepared to like this camera as much as I do. As a confirmed Canon-lover (7D with a couple of 'L' lenses), I really didn't think Sony could bring much to the party. I've rarely been so happy to be wrong.
Summary: The camera has exceptional versatility. The pictures are sharp and crystal clear. Had to make the automatic flash manual because I am used to working with shadows and composition to get the most memorable picture. Overall it was worth the expense.
Summary: This is my first quality dslr camera. I owned Nikons, from the Nikon F, Photomic T, to the F4HP. The A77 yields very sharp pictures even at 6 mp. I have not taken any pictures at the maximum 24.3 mp yet. I bought it to photograph my Huggmee chair and put it on the side of my van.

Summary: Update 4-23-14 Haven't updated in a while so here we go! We are now on bodies number 15 and 16 of these fabulous cameras. We shoot a lot of photos so we change out bodies every 3-4 months so we don't run the shutter count too high and ruin the resale.
Summary: Easily beats nikon and canon. Very functional for the average photographer and satisfies everything that a professional would need. Holds up well to travel as it came with us to Jamaica and did outstanding. Highly recommend it.
Wide angle and Telephoto Lenses and the Macro lens set and the 3 piece filter set did not fit the camera I bought

Summary: Do not buy from this company. When I received my order the 55-200mm lens was on back order. The only good thing I have to say about the company is that this back order lens was a SONY product and was received in fairly reasonable amount of time.
Summary: The best camera ever!!!!!! What you get for price point is awesome and I can't wait to use it in ALASKA. The 12 frames per second is mind blowing can't wait to use it when the bears are charging the salmon in the rivers.....
