7D owners did you consider Sony SLT-A77

I have narrowed down my list of cameras to canon 7d with canon 15-85 lens


Sony SLT-A77 with 16-50 lens

this will be my first DSLR.

i will use it for taking pictures of my young kids at home, their activities, travel pictures as we plan to take international trips. still picture quality is my higher priority but I am hoping to skip carrying a camcorder to my trips and be able to use the DSLR for short videos. At home I will still use a camcorder.

As far as I can tell image quality for the two will be similar but Sony quill do better videos. I do plan to own tvide camera for a long time and slowly buy more lenses. 7d may have a little more reliable and faster auto focus.

Thanks for your insights.
