Summary: All I can say is wow.... The resolution with the 16-50 f2.8 is outstanding. The EVF is a joy to use, the camera handles very well and is easy to use. I love the fact that what you see with the EVF is what you get on the photo. So far, of the couple of thousand shots - its performance is great...
The EVF Will Change The Way You Use Your Camera (For The Better)
30 October 2011
Summary: My rating reflects the camera as a whole. I bought it, use it and love it, but I'm going to take a different approach here and review one aspect of this camera: the viewfinder. Most of the professional reviews I've found for the Sony a77 (dpreview, etc) are entirely missing the point.
Sony Alpha SLT-A77 review by ABETTERDJANDPHOTOGRAPHER
28 October 2011
Summary: SONY SLT-A77 hands on review. We've been shooting with the SONY SLT A77 for a month as of today. We were formerly shooting with SONY SLT A55s and were not expecting as much photo quality improvement as we got... we were really surprised.
Pros: Super fast AF, amazing video, 12 FPS, feels professional in your hands, 3 way tilt screen nice button/dial layout
Excerpt: Do we really need all those megapixels? The smaller the pixel, the smaller the area for gathering photons. I'd have preferred fewer, bigger pixels to cope with real world issues like low light noise rather than more and more pixels trying to out resolve the lens.
Excerpt: Recently bought the A77MKII, to replace my ageing A700. I'm enjoying the much better AF points, focusing speed and wealth of tech packed in to the camera. Greater button customization gets the key functions where I want them. WiFi is a good touch too.
Excerpt: I bought my first A77 some two to three years ago and was very impressed with all that was demanded from it then I read independent reviews on the A77 v11 and bought that model a few weeks ago and so far I am delighted with the results this camera coupled with the Sony Zeiss 16-80 has given me.There...
Excerpt: I have had my Sony A77 for 6 months, I an safely say that it is one of the best camera's I have ever had. I have had Nikon & Cannon but it doesn't matter what I write about my Sony if you are stuck in a groove of tradition of Nikon & Cannon.
Excerpt: I have had the A77v for two and a half years and found it excellent in every respect. It does everything I want to a high standard. I came through from film cameras with Minolta, graduated to digital with a Sony A100 and, having had very good results with that camera plus compatible equipment,...
