There’s little not to like about Sony’s latest. It’s an SLT that could genuinely strangle the DSLR market dominance as it not only matches but outperforms in a number of departments. This is a camera for the new wave of tech-hungry shooters.

Making a major leap in the camera market, the Sony A77 reaches into pro territory, able to capture 12 frames per second with a 24.3-megapixel camera that feels great and handles like your typical enthusiast digital SLR. Its optional 16-50mm kit lens also delivers excellent quality for the money.

Good overall image quality with the built in stabilizer and has unrivalled video quality of Sony products. Battery life is letting me down as I can only take a few hundred photographs with each battery! Good Sony Design and quality but has slow start-up time! Very low shutter lag and a good...
