    Sony's new , long awaited, revolutionary enthusiast camera replacement for the A700!

    Ladies and gentlegerms, may I present...the Sony Alpha A77!










    A nice introductory video from Sony



    The Specs:
    • 24MP CMOS Sensor
    • 12fps continuous shooting with autofocus
    • 1080p60 movies with autofocus
    • 2.4M dot OLED viewfinder
    • 1/8000th maximum shutter speed, shutter rated for 150,000 actuations
    • ISO 50 - 16,000 (25,600 with multi-image combination)
    • Auto ISO with customisable lower and upper limits
    • Optional, profile-based correction of vignetting, chromatic aberrations and geometric distortion
    • Pull-out three-hinge tilt/swivel 920k dot LCD screen
    • Built-in GPS
    • Top panel LCD
    • Stereo microphone and external mic socket
    • AF Micro Adjust
    • Magnesium Alloy Body
    • Flash port
    • Brand new BionZ processor
    • Dust and moisture proof
    • 1200 zone metering
    • Body only: 1150, with professional spec 16-50 f/2.8 SuperSonic Motor optimised for video: 1669

    This, in my opinion is a huge step forward in the world of imaging, both still and moving. Never before has more speed than a Nikon D3S and the same resolution as a D3X (or if you like Canon 1Dsmkiii res and 1dmkiv speed) been wrapped up into a body that costs less than 1150!

    If there's anything that can take down the canon 7d/60d and Nikon d7000/d300s, then without a doubt in my mind it will be this, no two ways about it.

    Reviewers so far say the EVF kills all the bad expectations, comparing it to the screen of the iPhone 4, you cant see the pixels, and as it's an OLED screen and not an LED one, there's no RGB tearing, the one put off for me and EVF's.

    You can download full res images with firmware 1.0 in a .Zip file on this website fotoMagazin | Test Technik | Testbilderd say top stuff from Sony, also they've taken great steps to try and match the professional services from Canon and Nikon, like I said, this is THE CaNikon killer in my opinion!

    Apparently the Sony A99 is in the planning stage for April 2012 to replace the A900. Should be an interesting Spring.

    What I're read so far, it's sensor is weaker than Canon 6D. It seems that Canon learned the lesson with the new Canon 5D mark IV
