Sony Alpha A77

Sony Alpha SLT-A77

The Sony A77 is the long-awaited follow-up to the Sony A700.  The A77 features a 24.3MP sensor

The Sony A77 and its little brother, the A65, are the latest in DSLR-alternatives from the consumer electronics giant.  Packing an APS-C format 24.3MP CMOS sensor, the A77 and A65 use Sony’s translucent mirror technology to keep the autofocus fast while displaying a live feed to the rear-panel display screen or the electronic viewfinder.

The Sony A77 should be available in October 2011 at $1399 for the body only, or at $1999 with a new 16-50mm f/2.8 kit lens.
