Opinions on upgrading a700 to a65 or a77?
Dec 27, 2012


I was thinking, since they're currently on sale, of upgrading my a700 to an a65 or a77. The a65 is considerably cheaper, of course. I haven't really been keeping up with the new cameras.

Probably my main interest is improved low-light (high ISO) results. Faster autofocus would also be very nice.

While live-view and video are definitely nice bonuses, they're less important to me.

Is the a65 a good upgrade from an a700? What are the major advantageous of the a77 vs a65?

Also, I'll be selling my a700 body and also have a couple of full frame lenses I don't use anymore: Minolta 28-80/4-5.6 and Minolta Fish-Eye 16/2.8. Anyone know what I could reasonably expect to get for them?
