On article Sony Alpha 77 II firmware update improves AF speed (153 comments in total)

I upgraded the firmware and hope it helps in low light. When will Sony upgrade the wifi/NFC App? It's too naive and far behind the one for a7 family. It would be a huge improvement if there is full manual control in wifi/NFC App for a77 M2.

Good shot! Did you took it in St. Charles? I took some pictures for my kids in one park just like this.

ZWTang: I upgraded from Sony a55 to a57 without hesitate, and I like it. This a58 is not an exciting upgrade at all. No GPS, no faster focus, still 15 point focus... I wish Sony could focus on improving 16M sensor and provide clear picture at high iso instead of another "me too" 20M sensor. I hope I'm wrong.

The key feature of STL system is the focus speed and accuracy. This is the most important reason I pick up STL instead of NEX or Cannon or Nikon. It's clear that you can not get it from here. The focus speed decrease from 12 fps to 8 fps in burst mode and the fast continue shooting decrease from 8 fps to 5 fps. If you used it to take pictures of kids and sports, you will see the clear difference.

Another critical thing is the image quality. I bet this 20M sensor in A58 may not improve the high iso performance than the 16M sensor in A57. Just like the A65 provides worse low light performance than A57.

Not mention the degrade of video recording...Not mention the smaller screen...

The only better thing is the viewfinder, which is not a real big thing for lots people. All together you know why Sony drops the price of A58, cause it's not a upgrade from A57, on the opposite, a real minor degrade.
