Yep, but what I hate is the A77's interface doesn't follow the camera's orientation like older models

So when you hit the Fn button the menu appears in the wrong orientation, same for the camera menu and playback. Would have been easy to implement in the same way as older models using the orientation sensor....

I know this thread is 10 months old, but I'm glad I'm not the only one with this gripe!!

I just received my a77 and vertical grip and thought there was something wrong with either the grip or the camera because the on screen info would not rotate when in portrait orientation.

Any chance this can be corrected with a firmware update so it works like the grip on my a300?

I've got the v1.05 software on the camera.

.....Thanks guys, you just saved me some money! I was getting ready to buy the grip for X-mas since the price is reasonably low, even though I don't have all that much use for a VG. The screen rotation issue ultimately convinced me not to buy it!
