Re: A77 First Impressions

Yes the A77 use much much more battery than my old A350.
I have to put the vertical grip on the A77 with 2 batteries in all the time.

Also the ? button is really useless,
It will be much more useful if it can config to select Focus pattern or HDR.

Have you try the preview button?
It behave strange during A-Mode.

The brightness change with the aperture and does not show the correct shot result.
But this problem does not occur during S-Mode or P-Mode.

It will be great, if the preview button can config to other functions
other than the DOF preview and the incorrect shot result preview mode.
