    Looks like an absolute brute... I think this will definitely shake things up in APS-land - there are features on this that are well and truly in amongst the D3/1D's of the world...

    Will be mighty interesting to see how CaNikon/Pentax respond with D400/7DII/K-3(?) :smile:

    MR over on luminous-landscape is already all over the new camera. Nothing on IQ however as no final firmware yet. If Sony can actually get 24mm to behave on an APS sized chip a lot of people are going to jump on this.

    I may have to have another camera myself. :eek:

    Since I know that I will probably never own a camera that large, what interests me most about the A77 (and NEX-7) is the very high resolution, high refresh rate OLED viewfinder. It's a huge step toward the days when OVFs will have absolutely no advantages over EVFs. I can only hope that the next generation of :43: cameras follow suit.
