Summary: Better than expect. Easy to work, great quality of image with minimum deformation at any situation that I have tried until now. The viewer/eyepiece is digital so we can view the effect automatically (different from the regular LCD viewer since the image appears with little adjustments). I have to say, this is nice because helps me to safe time by using coreldraw or photoshop later.
Summary: I love this camera. The crystal clear photos are amazing. It has some neat features such as the translucent lens technology that changes how cameras work. Instead of the old traditional mirror that moves up and down and can cause shake, this mirror doesn't have to move. There is a manual focusing feature where the item you are focusing on will illuminate around the edges so you'll know it is in focus.
Summary: The pictures are very clear and the camera is very easy to use. The camera viewers also have an alignment guide which helps make sure your pictures are straight. The continuous setting comes in handy when you have two small children and you are trying to get a good picture. Over 100 pictures in 10 minutes with multiple poses? ONE of them HAS to be good! The 3D setting seems neat, but the pictures are very hard to take without a tripod or some sort of support.
Summary: I will summarize my thoughts for advanced DSLR users here ... - manual focusing is so much easier here compared to all others DSLRS ... thanks to focus peeking. - EVF is spectacular ... histogram tells you before you click. - back / front focusing correction for problem lenses - much more powerful in-body OIS ... 210mm shot at 1/30s was sharp! - weather sealed - multi frame noise reduction really does help!
Summary: I had my Sony A700 5 years since it was released. I loved that camera. I would always have it, as no other camera every felt as good in my hand. But finally the desire to have video too for shooting events at my daughter's school drove me to look again at the A77. I had looked many times since it came out. Liked the features. But really never like the electronic viewfinder - EVF.
I shot professionally for 4 decades, and this camera improved my work

Summary: If you want the fighter jet of camera's, this is it. Just be prepared to study it and read up on the manual, it is a multi-layered, complex tool. This is NOT a point and shoot, it will help a seasoned photographer do anything he wants, or EASILY help the amateur get great photos. The camera has enough assets built into it to keep almost anyone interested in learning about it for a long time.
Excerpt: I purchased the A77 as an upgrade from my A57. So far I am very happy with the decision to do so. This camera has performed very well up to now though at the time of this review I have only taken 150-200 shots with it. I was a little worried about the supposed low light high ISO grain that some people have complained about but frankly I havent seen any such problem surface.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Magnesium Body, Weather Sealed
Excerpt: So far the camera and lens has worked generally quite well. It is a good combination and I feel you get a lot of features for the money. Mine came with firmware version 1.07 which resolves some previous issues compared to the first few versions. I have the 70-300 G lens also and do recommend it. The GPS locks in fairly fast depending upon the location and whether you have downloaded the GPS Assist Data info into the camera.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Many Features For The Pri
Cons: Flash Pops Up When Not Ne, Have A D-r Setting Issue, Poor in Low Light
