Summary: Received my preorder Sony Alpha A77. I only gave it a 4 Star because of ghosting at night.Just like the A33&A55. Why do I say this? Take a picture of the moon while it is still light out and it comes out fine Try to take a picture of the moon at night and the ghosting from the translucent mirror is...
Summary: Let me preface this by saying that I'm relatively new to the world of DSLR's but have a great fondness for both photography and technology. My first "real" camera was the Sony NEX 3. It allowed me to get my feet wet without breaking the bank.
Summary: The Camera Fairy blessed my porch last Friday and handed me an Amazon box which upon opening, disgorged a familiar black and orange Alpha box with my A77 body inside, safely cushioned in bubble-wrap.
Summary: wow!!! as soon as i received my camera from Amazon, visited the near by park to take few pictures of the fall colors, they are posted, in a cloudy day and 1st time using the camera, i am very happy with the result, it is a sophisticated camera but it is very easy to use and produces great pictures,...
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...

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.

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
VERY POOR AFTER SALES SERVICE BEWARE THE LCD SCREEN IS

Summary: Had this camera a year and then some sweat marks appeared to lift the antiglare coating on the lcd. Sent it to sony explaining that it must be a manufacturing fault. They refused to repair it for free.
Summary: SONY WOULD NOT REPAIR MY A77 OUT OF WARRANTY MY A77 HAS DEVELOPED A STAIN ON THE LCD. UNLIKE OTHER SONY CAMERAS IT DOES NOT HAVE A SCREEN COVER SO ANY SWEAT OR SUNCREAM CAN DAMAGE THE LCD SURFACE. IN MY MIND THIS IS A DESIGN FAULT.
