Comments about Sony Alpha A77 Digital SLT Camera with 16-50mm Lens:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sony releases a giant killer...
from East Sussex
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
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.

The best camera available today

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast, Professional
I use this camera for everything from macro photography to product photography to the great outdoors and continue to be impressed by its performance. The higher resolution of 24 mp is really noticeable (to the point that you'll find you need to improve your focusing technique! ;-) The camera has loads of extra features as well, such as HDR, panorama, burst mode at 10 fps, HD video etc., that all work very well and make it one of the best photographic tools available. All in all I can't recommend this camera too much.
