a65 my choice over a77, anyone else?
Aug 24, 2011

I have the a55 and know pretty well which camera features are important to my personal needs. I love the a55. If I buy a new Sony, it will almost certainly be the a65. Personally, I like the size and weight. 1/4000th of a second and 10fps burst are both fast enough for my purposes. I really want the "smart teleconverter" and notice that both models include this feature. The guts of the two cameras, including the fine EVF, seem to be identical.

I'm sure not trying to start an argument and recognize clearly that the a77 is the better of the two cameras. The things that make it better just don't appeal to me. I guess I would like the better build quality if it didn't come with a size/weight penalty. I assume the a65 plastic will be about the same as the a55.

It's sure going to be fun reading more reviews of these two great cameras. I think Sony hit it out of the park!
