Summary: The Sony A77 is an excellent DSLR camera at a reasonable price considering all the features and specifications. Having always used Nikon cameras, I was at first somewhat skeptical of the Sony translucent technology but after reading the reviews , I was convinced that this A77 was in a class by itself.
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. It is an excellent camera, especially when you ignore its many automatic modes and use it as a serious photographer. I'll be spending a little more time in the weight room so that I can put the A77 in my camera pack alongside the Canon.
Summary: This is my second A77. I took the first one back because the GPS constantly was off by 3/4 a mile. Yep you guessed it, the second camera has the same problem. The manual says the GPS should be accurate within 98 feet. The two cameras I have used both were off by 3/4 a mile. Other than the GPS problem. The camera is GREAT ..... so far, but I have only had it two days now.
Summary: Let me start off by saying that I am not a professional photographer, I don't even know many terms associated with photography but one thing that I can tell you is that my current place of business has a photo studio and in that photo department there are 10 people who know a lot more about photography than I will ever do.
Summary: Just got my hands on the A77 and took it out for a very quick test drive last night and this morning. As a die-hard Canon girl who has invested quite a bit in Canon lenses and bodies over the years, I was prepared to not like the Sony, or think it was too "different" to adjust. I was quite wrong. I'm still not completely familiar with all the controls, but the majority of the ones I needed were clearly labeled and easy to find.
Summary: I long awaited update to KM a7. A good camera coupled with the 16-50 f2.8 lens in the right lighting conditions. High ISO performance is poor at best and anything above ISO800 is not usable. The 12fps bust rate is fun to have at times as I have not explored â€œactionâ€� photography is before I had this camera and focusing speed is reasonably fast.
Summary: After having owned the Alpha 100, 700, 900 and now the Alpha 77, I think my experience with Sony Cameras has been a steady transformation. I started just wanting to capture the Action shots that everyone else misses. Sony allows me to document that moment in time that no one really see's with the naked eye. Unbelievable speed and resolution make for great Enlargements. To be sure, this is a very handy piece of equipment for the Professional Photographer.
Summary: Only had the camera a couple of weeks but ,at low iso, images I took of grandchildren, flowers, blooms, and scenery at a local park with 16-50 lens are very sharp. I love the viewfinder - bright and clear. Camera just feels good when you use it. This is my first Sony slr and I'm very happy with my choice. I already added 2 more sharp primes to take advantage of the sensor's capabilities. Excited to see what happens...
