Summary: Received this camera as well as lens. Amazing price for a amazing camera. The camera and everything came in new still in the box and factory sealed. The camera quality is top notch! better then the Canon's as well as other cameras I have used. This is not a "point and shoot" for beginners.
This camera (Alpha SLT-A77) is awesome. The Translucent mirror makes the camera quieter

Summary: Since I own Minolta auto-focus lenses, the cameras I use are Sony. This camera (Alpha SLT-A77) is awesome. The Translucent mirror makes the camera quieter. The photos I have taken with this camera look better than ever. I like the way the controls are arranged and it feels good in my hands.
Summary: I bought this camera used from Amazon - saved a bunch of money, and the camera is in premium condition. I've had mixed luck with Amazon used products in the past due to lack of detailed descriptions, but I hit the jackpot on this camera. Very pleased.
Summary: I purchased this item on February 5, 2013 so I feel I can give a pretty decent review now. I liked the a77 at first. It took great photos, did everything I wanted it to do. About 6 months after owning it I noticed spots on my photos.
I'm not a photographer. But now, I take photos like one!

Summary: Being a Nikon user for close to 30 years I have been watching Sony grow over the past years. I finally gave in and totally changed out my camera system. There is too much to say how fantastic this camera is and the many functions it has to spark your creativity bug.
Excerpt: First the bad. Slow response time in waking up or tuning on. This is even with f/w v1.07. Battery stamina isn't that great to begin with, but setting a longer timeout before sleep drains it more. Noise is quite evident beginning at ISO400.
Excerpt: This has been on my 'To-Do' list for quite some time: So I have owned the A77 since the week it first shipped out in the US back in October 2011. I bought so that I may have it in time for the birth of my daughter.
