One more store got this repair guide from Sony that includes the A77 name and repair price. There have been another repair guide “leak” a couple of days ago. Anyway, that’s again a proof the A77 is getting closer and that our sources were right when long time ago they told to us the A77 would be announced in July (with one source saying it will be July the 7th).
And if all works well with my sources than I could publish the very first A77 picture soon!
Reminder: Those are the secs and other rumors we collected about the A77:
The A77 is coming in mid July
Shipment start early October
Coming with new kit lens (A Sony 16-50mm zoom. Compared to the Zeiss 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 it will have a constant aperture and probably have a bit higher price. Zeiss 16-80mm price check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay.)
24 Megapixels (The combination of the new sensor+new Zeiss lens delivers 62% more resolution than the A55 16 Megapixel sensor.)

AF fine-tuning capabilities. A source told us that it has an improved focusing system (quite fast and accurate).
