A77 - Why is Sony holding back on basic features :-( ?
Aug 25, 2011

Having bought an A55 for temporary use, I was waiting impatiently for the arival of it´s big brother. While the A55 is a fun toy with a few lovely features, easy to carry along, it was not meant to replace either my A100, nor my A900. The plan was to replace the A100 and the A55 with the A77.

On of the reasons I´m not totally happy with the A55 is the missing program shift. I have been using this feature over decades. Even my analog Minoltas had it, the Dimages had it, the KM A2 and the Alphas I own have it - only the A55 does not. And - big surprise - the new "EVF Flagship" doesn´t either The same goes for DMF, which I´ve been happy to use with every digital camera I own.

These aren´t features which would raise the cost of production to any significant degree. In a body in it´s price range, I expect them, and I´m so disappointed that I´ve decided not to update.
