Summary: First a bit about myself. i'm a senior @ Columbia College Chicago and photography isn't my concentration, I would consider myself a "prosumer" photographer. I've done a bit of professional work, but mostly this is just a hobby and passion.
Summary: I have owned an A65 for a year now, and decided to upgrade to the A77 simply for the fact it is more protected with the weather seal. I love my A65 too. I am late to the world of photography - having gone back to college and will graduate this spring with my AFA in Fine arts and move on to Photo...
Summary: Prefacing this with I'm not an Expert in photography but can only judge from what appeals to my eye. I've used this camera for around two weeks and this is my entry into DSLR (Or in this case DSLT) from Point and Shoot cameras. My previous camera is an Canon S95.
Two Years Later, Still a Contender (from a Nikon User)
24 February 2014
Summary: Recently, I had the opportunity to shoot with the SLT-A77 for an extended period. As a heavy Nikon user (D300s and D800) with “all things Nikon,” I was ready for a serious let down, especially concerning build quality and using an Electronic Viewfinder (coming from optical). Boy was I wrong.
Summary: This camera has been a great step up from my Sony A550, allowing me to continue to use my Minolta and Sony lenses, a huge plus (the 70-300 is superb and the 18-250 lens is the best walk-a-round lens in the DSLR world) with a substantive increase in electronic wizardry and camera functionality.
I just got it and WOW! This is the perfect camera for me!

Summary: I have had 35mm cameras, and have shot photos since the days of the Minolta SRT-101. I learned the ins and outs of composition, focus, aperture, shutter speed, depth of field and batteries at an early age.
