It is no surprise to me, unfortunately my original reply was deleted as it was a reply to a real troll. When the 77 came out it was different from the tradition of the SLR. Over time people who have actually used it regularly can see the capabilities of the camera. I had replied to a comment where he had sited a disparaging review from March 2012, which sort of proved my point. Cards on the table, I really enjoy using this camera, if it had a shutter activation count like the traditional SLR I suspect that I would be invalidating the warranty it is used that often. There’s a benefit for the SLT not mentioned.
