Summary: I really like this camera. It feels great and takes awesome pictures. When you start getting into the higher ISOs the images can become a bit noisy. Sony has compensated for this by implementing a noise reduction option for JPEG's but if you shoot RAW you will need to do noise reduction in post processing. The lens that came with my camera had problems closing to the appropriate aperture. I have talked to several A77 owners and this seems to be common problem.
Summary: I have shot with an a700 for almost 5 years and was very skeptical when the a77 was announced in August as itâ€™s replacement. My skepticism was based on 3 things: 1) the image quality of 24mps on a â€œCâ€� sensor (lots of mps on a small sensor); 2) the quality of the OLED viewfinder; 3) the buffers ability to keep up with the speed of the camera in RAW and 12fps.
Summary: I was waiting for this camera since it was announced and i have it finally.I am totally speechless and i can say that the money was worth it.I bought it with the SAL1650 and the quality of the images are fantastic.My first camera was Sony Alpha a230 and the transition to a77 is huge.I have always given my credit to Sony Alpha and i always will.I cant wait to start doing photography with a77.Please visit my website to see the images i have taken so far with my Sony Alpha...
Summary: After weeks of waiting for this camera to be available for retail sale on the Sony Style website, I was fortunate enough to purchase one from a retail camera outfit in this area who pre-ordered some awhile back when they first were available for pre-order on the Sony Style website... Let me say one thing, this Sony SLT-A77VQ is one of the greatest camera's, EVER!
