How rugged is the A77?
Feb 26, 2012

Hi Everyone!

I'm trying to wrap my brain around the idea that my A77 is actually tough! When I first got it, I was so scared to let it tap anything or bump into anything... but as time as progressed I have read about how weather and dust resistant it is and all in all a tough device. This thread got me really curious: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1037&message=40687280

I see people with their 7Ds and they are really rugged, banged up and seem like they have been thru it all and keep on tickin

So how rugged are these A77s? And are other brands more rugged? A lot of people are writing about how their A77s have wear and tear issues after just a few months of use.

Curious me!

Thanks
