Summary: First of all, check which supplier your camera will be coming from, as some may not be supplying UK stock. This may affect your ability to get Sony UK to undertake a warranty repair, so be vcareful.
Summary: Bought it despite strong protests from Canon/Nikon owners and can proudly declare that i own a winner of this class. Things which I like most are:- * Its lens are cheaper. * It has better/more options & functions that are user friendly. * HDD & Auto ISO feature rocks. * Clarity is good.
Summary: I have studied this camera for some time and on paper it comes up very well indeed. The offer at Amazon was very good indeed. They are a trustworthy company and I felt totally sure they would not let me down. Sure enough, a couple of days after ordering the camera arrived.
Summary: One of my best purchases ever, worth every penny. Joy to use & shoot giving great results from not so great photographer! I won't list all the features - you can easily find them, so I'll just describe main pros & cons.

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. VERY POOR AFTER SALES SERVICE BEWARE THE LCD SCREEN IS VULNERABLE
Summary: I have and old sony a100 and it was brilliant thats why I decided on sony again,it was the right choise the a77v is brilliantI have only done one shoot with it to date i found it quiet the controlls are in the right place and easy to find without taking your eye of the subject.
Summary: So after many happy years with the excellent A200, I decided to take the plunge and bought the A77 (body). Having read endless reviews on the A77 it seemed that the general opinion was that the technology wasn't quite there yet but the advantages outweighed the disadvantages.
