Re: A99 vs A77, pros and cons

Michel J's post in this thread appeared while I was working on my little post of the pros and cons (and trying to hold down my job at the same time). He's already done here so this is duplicative but I do want to acknowledge his list of the A99's advantages over the A77, which is excellent:


I wish I'd been aware of his list when I was making mine!

Nevertheless, his list is very detailed and I was intentionally painting with a broader brush. I wanted to make the list as short as possible but make sure I included the Big Things. I don't honestly care that the sensor is thinner or that the photosites are N% wider, etc. To me it's all down to the A99's image quality advantage.

There is just one thing he mentions that I would have included on my list, perhaps as the very last of the A99's significant pros, and that is the ability to use auto ISO (and thus also exposure compensation) while shooting in M.
