Mike I own the A77 so I know what you are talking about with the A57! I was being a tiny bit sarcastic about the OP being hell bent on finding something wrong with the 70-400 G II not being sharp since he was on the Nikon forum about a week ago talking about buying the D7100 and 80-400!

Now I get it. In addition to the A57 with G1 70-400, I also use a D300 with 80-400 VR (non AFS) and it simply couldn't keep up with college football. I was missing too many shots. The Sony combo solved the problem.  I actually used an A580 for the image below.
