Re: If the usability issues of the A77 are not fixed, I'll probably skip this one

If you are needing the AF Assist Lamp, then high chances are you are using a flash.

I usually don't use a flash. I prefer ambient light, even if it's really low.

Now on that same note but in a different direction, if the improved AF sensor is as good as Sony claims, then you shouldn't need an AF assist lamp to lock focus in most low light situations.

I'm sure the improvement will be very visible when shooting high contrast test patterns, but actual subjects are more challenging.
