Excellent camera/lens combination
from County Antrim, NI.
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Sony Alpha A77 Digital SLT Camera with 16-50mm Lens:
I've used the A77 for over a year now and while it seemed heavy (with the f2.8 16-50mm lens fitted), compared to my A100, I'm now comfortable with handling it. I use it mainly for landscape subjects but it has faired well for me at motorsport events, weddings, for nature subjects and the occassional portrait session. The multi burst feature is a triumph at sporting events, allowing me to capture the height of the action - well, most times! Basically it's an excellent 'all rounder' piece of kit, giving super results.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So pleased with my choice
I spent a long time researching the camera to upgrade to. Ultimately, I realised if I bucked the Nikon/Canon trend, whilst I might not have the really wide range of lenses those cameras can use (I only really want 2 anyway), I'd be getting a camera whose build quality and features would cost much more from those manufacturers. I ignored the anti-EVF brigade because I had one before and find it really beneficial sometimes. The 16-50mm F2.8 lens it shipped with is excellent as is the 70-300mm I bought for the telephoto end of things. The tilting rear LCD was a must for me as well based on previous experience - this one is great. Everything feels solid, and settings I need quickly are easily accessed

About Me Professional
I have two of these cameras, their main use is wedding photography and secondary use studio work. I initially bought one body and after a few weeks of using it decided to buy a second.The body feels solid but surprisingly light, the build is pretty good with good use of plastics and rubber covering the metal shell. I have large hands and the grip felt borderline for me so went with the optional battery grip.The 16-50 kit lens is probably the best kit lens I have ever seen, a little soft at 2.8 but usable. The lens and body are weather sealed, this proved itself when I got caught in a heavy shower whilst shooting some bridal shots in a field.For me, the ISO performance is just right. In some situations, poorly lit Churches etc I do have to push it but all in all the results are usable 99% of the time.

Sony releases a giant killer...
from East Sussex
I'm a wildlife photographer, having used Canon for many years I never thought I'd switch manufacturer, but having seen reviews and footage of the A77 in action I knew it was time to make the leap.Now for all of you that have discussed this camera body with friends and colleagues, and have been greeted with the negative comments that seem to be doing the rounds on You-Tube and the photography forums let's get some of the nonesense out of the way - Yes, it's different, it's a Sony.It has a lot more controls and menus to deal with.Yes, it has 'Translucent Mirror Technology' that allows for very high speed shooting without a moving mirror.And it has a 'Precision Electronic Viewfinder' as opposed to an optic viewfinder.Not to mention the ability to shoot 1920x1080 HD video, with full-time AF tracking of moving subjects, at either 24p or 50p progressive.All of these features are a move away from what you'll see from the other two manufacturuers offerings, but here's the thing, it all works, and it does everything staggingly well, at a fraction of the cost of the competition.The very fact that you can shoot, at 12fps, up to 1/8000th of a second, in RAW, is itself an incrediable feature, yes you still have the constraints of the cameras own internal buffer, and the size and write speed of the memory card, but I've used this with a Sandisk Ultra 95mbs SD card and have consistantly managed 36 frames before realising any buffer lag, with the internal buffer then clearing down in around 10 seconds.How about using the supplied 16-50mm f/2.8 'kit' lens, which is weather proofed, sharp, fast and in conjunction with the cameras onboard 2 x teleconverter (shooting jpeg only) suddenly becomes a 100mm f/2.8, anyone else give you such a high quality lens as part of a package?(The image of the Red Squirrel was taken with the kit lens using this method, the image is cropped but other than that exactly how it came off the camera)And before I forget, a 24.3 effective megapixels Ultra-high resolution Exmor™ APS HD CMOS Sensor, on a camera body that retails for under £1,500.00, with the kit lens - anyone else do that?Like I said, I never imagined I would change from Canon, but boy am I glad I did.

The future of SLRs
This is the future, with a brilliant EVF, rapid burst rate and excellent imaging.
Excellent features and build quality
As an absolute beginner I expected to be overwhelmed by the A77. When It arrived I found it easy to setup and to use.
Sony SLT A77 lets me do so much more
BIG improvement in capability over my Minolta 7D.
