Summary: I was aprehensive about the EVF before I bought it, but after using for several weeks it is brilliant. Much brighter than an OVF and being able to change ANY setting with it up to your eye is great. I now seldom use the rear screen atall!

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: Bought for a safari to Africa, paired with Sigma 70-200 f2.8. A dream to use, extra focus points were welcome & toggle joystick makes it much easier to select individual points whilst camera is to the eye. Multi way screen is excellent & allows for awkward angle shots.
Summary: Have had the A77 for a fortnight now and have grown to like it more with use. The noise is not as bad as the reviews would make you believe and the camera operation is fast. ISO 1600 looks good. At first I was not totally happy with EVF but it's actually very useful.
Summary: The EVF. You just have to try it, & you'll probably be like me, for the first 10 minutes I was like, I hate this, what have I done! Then, it clicked, & I don't think I'll ever go back to an Optical Viewfinder ever again.
Summary: Pros: Excellent quality of the images,lots of features to play with.I do consider this camera as a professional camera Cons: No Cons at all 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...
Summary: This is a unique camera with so many innovations, which will change the future of the SRL market, the "kit" lens is excellent, fast optics and super fast focusing, while being silent (which is important for making movies).
Summary: I have had the Sony A77 for about a month and am still discovering hidden depths. The electronic viewfinder is excellent and though some optical die-hards may still quibble, I have experienced no problems whatsoever.
