Ok, I have just sent back my A77 to the shop and I have test a new A77...and it fell on me..eg..crash when I tried it in the shop...I have to go back again to the shop next time cos they run out of stock!!

After reading various Hong Kong (where I live) and Taiwan forum, here are the summary of few possibilities and factors that make the A77 crash ..or worst, not responsive even after taking the battery out and in again (my case )...and you guys should try to avoid it:

1. Not using an original Sony battery (eg. 3rd party battery) to switch on the camera.

2. Not using an original Sony lens , especially sigma...some stated that some old Minolta lens also caused the problem.
3. Try to switch off the camera while saving.
But Sony....sort them out please....sigh!
