Re: if you got the a65 instead of the a77 are you unhappy

Yes, I would be unhappy, because I am a stills and not a video photographer.

A65 has the main disadvantages of A77 (noisy sensor, bad quality of the EVF at really sunny environment, especiall if shadows are present) but misses most of A77s advantages (better AF, micro-adjust, flash sync socket and much more already mentioned in this thread and at the beginning of the dpreviw review).

For stils photography, A580 is a much better allround performer that I would definetly prefer to A65 for my purposes. A65 would be the better tool if you

  • often use the video function

  • shoot mainly indoor with flash other illumination that does not require high ISO

  • mainly shoot at ISO ISO 100 and not higher than ISO 800

I own both A580 and A77 and both have their advantages and I use them for different tasks. I have written more about the two cameras and shown comparisons at
