Excerpt: The A77 is a great camera that focuses fast and accurately, has good enough high iso capability, is extremely well built and is ergonomically comfortable. The menu system is simple and easy to navigate. One of the best APS-C cameras available.
Excerpt: I've been shooting with the a77 for 1 year now and it still puts a smile on my face every time I get an opportunity to use it :-) Years ago I had a Minolta 450i with a Sigma 28-80 & Sigma 70-300 combo. I tried going past Auto mode a few times. Most shots were severely over or under exposed and when I did get a decent picture I had no clue what I had done right :-x I quickly went back to the safe confines of Auto mode and the security of quickly composing and pressing...
Excerpt: I've had quite a few cameras including SLRs and DSLRs from Canon, Nikon, Konica-Minolta and Sony. The A77 is just the best overall camera I've ever owned or used. The resolution is outstanding and the color and dynamic range are amazing for an APS-C camera. The AF system is fast, accurate, and tracks moving subjects well. It's very competitive with my Canon 1D4. I absolutely love the EVF. It's a revelation in terms of getting the shot right the first time.
Excerpt: I have to admit I have not had as much time to shoot as I would like. But I can tell you I have spent hours getting to know the camera and using it with my lenses. My Previous camera was an A700 owned for 6 years. I have shots Canon SLRs in the past plus other brands. You can read all the feature lists... online etc. So none of that here.. I knew I wanted Video fnally and I own 5-6 A-Mount (Sony) Lenses..
Excerpt: I am always been a fan of Sony products, when I first bought my first a350 I was mind blowing by the performance, and the technology they put in that camera. I always felt far more advanced. Then I bought this beauty. A77, wohooo. Endless possibilities. I have few lenses with this camera, and the next thing you know, the pictures so sharp. And so much settings to to get the best thing which you require. Must a buy, you won't go back to Canon or Nikon or any other.
Excerpt: I upgraded from SLT-A55 which I had for almost a year before getting the SLT-A77V in June 2012. Carrying over all the familiarity from the A55, meant that the learning curve wasn't too steep. Gary Friedman's A65/A77 book was a very valuable purchase and helped greatly in making the best use of all the new features and functions.
