Image on top: Sony A77 and A700 overlay made by Ron (www.goldeneraphoto.com).
Our sources confirmed that the A77 is under heavy testing. Two anonymous testers contacted us to share the first impressions over the A77:
1) “I am the photographer that reported earlier about the A77/A800 and I’d like to say that paired with the Zeiss lenses the images are very sharp, the 24MP res is good for big closeups, although I can’t reveal anything about the ISO noise. The focusing system is quite fast and accurate.”
2) The second photographer said that resolution is amazing and they measured an 60% improvement over the [shoplink 3617]Sony A55[/shoplink]. The A77 is the best APS-C camera he ever tested. And the electronic viewfinder is also a huge step forward compared to the one used for the [shoplink 3617]Sony A55[/shoplink]. He said that you hardly will miss the optical viewfinder.
I am preparing a few new SR5 rumors over the next NEX and A77 cameras. So stay tuned on SonyAlphaRumors!
