A77 pros

  1. The crop-factor advantage. I'd go for the A77 over the A99 if I were mainly interested in shooting birds or wildlife, because the lenses have longer reach, and the long lenses seem to be cheaper.



    No offense but do you really believe about this myth?

    No extra focal length with the "crop factor" (what is only what it is: croping the existing image circle of your FF lenses) what is nothing to do with the sensor resolution.

    Take a try with an APS.C and a FF and  compare, you can know.
