    the Sony A77.

    Came across these youtube clips:

    Top 6 reasons NOT to buy a Sony A77; and Top 5 reasons TO buy the Sony A77.

    Both by the same guy. Interestingly, his website, from what I can make out, is just Nikon and Canon.

    We should pay attention to what these Pro's say.

    He seems conflicted to me. :D

    Plus one of the posters on there is correct Nigel Baker (British pro fashion photographer) uses a Sony A900 for alot of work.

    He has used Pentax 645 as well.

    So reason 5 against is in the toilet. :)

    He seems irrelevant to me. :p

    Has anyone with a load of gear invested in one brand from time immemorial (well, Minolta days :D), ever been convinced to change brands entirely, due to the features of one new camera body? Doubt it.

    And if you have only a point'n'shoot, and are considering 'moving up' to DSLR/T, are you likely to pick the A77, when there are much cheaper alternatives available, which probably meet your needs better? Doubt it.

    So who exactly is this chap hoping to convince? Either way? Sounding off to hear his own voice, more like. Ah, the internet. God bless its little cotton socks :D

    Never mind. I like my A77, and that's what's important to me, not internet pundits. Always make up your own mind...

    I mailed him with my reasons for liking the A77 (IMHO, amazing). His reply was that he is waiting for one to arrive in Canada (where he is based). So I can only assume that he was either given one to play with (unlikely) or he based his review just on the specification (most probably).:D

    Why do you care what this guy thinks. Who is he, I'd never have known about the guy and even if I did. What he says would not influence any decisions I made on my buying choices.

    Especially as like you I'm an Alpha user mainly because I was a Minolta one. So my choice are going to be based on my lens selection.

    I would say forget what this guy is saying and go out and enjoy your new camera you lucky bugger ya. I'm still using the Alpha 100 got a long way to go as far as the A77 is concerned.

    I get the feeling you might be trying to justify the cost of the camera to yourself and perhaps looking for rave reviews. If that's not the case but you find you don't like the camera. You can pass it on to me, I can be found at www. me@criminally poor.boohoo. Failing that any arch around Waterloo

    I guess you will be looking at this then "Queens View Pitlochry" with a white capped
    Schehallion up the end there. Its a good area to be in, don't forget Bruar Falls just up the road a bit.

    Yes, he does seem particularly fond of those brands, although he also has a Sigma lens section!
