Re: First Day with my new A77

I like the kind of "grain" I get with the A850, especially when printing large images (60X90cm) from ISO 400 to ISO 1600 files. I find it very pleasing.

Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the A77 files. To me, too much noise at reasonable ISOs cannot be considered a good thing.

I knew that well before I bought it and never intended to use the A77 as my main camera, the A850 fits my personal tastes much better. I bought the A77 for macro and wildlife (faster and quieter shutter, APS-C crop factor, focus peaking, etc.) and I find it quite good for such purposes. But it is kind of restricting.
