Re: From Nikon ... to Canon ... to Sony

Thanks for the information. I am comparing with my brothers Canon 7D, so I'd guess the 60D's auto focus should be quite similar. The 7D is definitely quite superior when it comes to Auto focus compared to my A700 so I would be interested to hear how it may compare to the new A77.

I have found the focus to be very fast, likely due to the phase detection as opposed to contrast detection etc. The A77 has an even better system in place, and more cross-type sensors as well, so I would imagine it to be very good.

I had heard of some talk that in low-light the AF was slow, I have not experienced such issues. I have the latest firmware installed on the camera. Perhaps that plays a role?

My primary camera was a Nikon D3s, so it is as though I am coming from the mid-range either. Also, my Canon setup was a 60D. So that gives you some idea regarding the comparisons.

I will report back again once I have tested it in "real world" environments, however, I think I am going to be pleasantly surprised.
