Hi everyone - I am a Sony girl (love that Translucent Lens Technology!) and am hoping there are some others on the boards that use Sony too. I am moving up from my a33 to the a77 this week and would love to chat with some others who have used some of the newer alpha line of cameras.

Happy Easter!

I have a sony alpha 100 which I've owned for several years and was planning to upgrade to the alpha 77 when it first came out, a year or so ago but then, the floods hit Thailand and the a77 was not available for several months.

During that time I rethought my situation and decided to jump ship to the Canon 5D MK2 . I'm happy with my choice but I still wonder what the a77 would have been like. When you have the a77 and use it a bit I'd love to hear your feelings on it.

You. Will. LOVE. It.

I shoot the A77. It's heavy...solid. This could be a negative for some, but doesn't bother me. The viewfinder is amazingly bright. The photographs I have taken since getting this camera last summer still startle me. It's like, "Wow! Did I take that?" sometimes! I upgraded from the A350, which I am keeping as a backup, and there is just no comparison. The 350 is a good camera, but the 77 simply blows it out of the water.

I have never heard of that camera before. I would love to see images from it too

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

I just got a Sony NEX 6 for Christmas. So far so good. There's so much to learn. Before the Sony I had a point & shoot.

I have been drooling over the a99,, but I will have to settle for the a77 since it is a pleasure camera only for me. I loved my a33 - I had wanted the a55 but they were unavailable and were not expected to be in stock for several months when I bought mine in January '11.

I did read the weight on the a77 - but I am not bothered by it. It is only a little heavier than the a33. I can't wait to get my hands on it - have been wanting it for a while and finally saved up my money

thanks for your input - Being a Sony user is lonely sometimes !
