Yet its ahead of the 7D and not far behind the D7100 in terms of ISO. It's really not that bad compared to its competition.

123Mike is obsessed with digital noise so it may be acceptable to you and me, but not to him. I find other camera characteristics much more important and for me the A77 hits all the right buttons. For others who have a different set of want's and needs maybe not, maybe no APS-C camera.

Through the years I have noticed that for people who want the highest noise S/N ratio possible the best is never good enough for long.

For years now, my A57 has produced cleaner shots than I would have achieved with an A77. I like my family photo records that way. Video on both sucks. I need to fix that. Either Sony makes a better A-mount one, or I'm going A6000. I'm already on that path.
