Ok, I have the A77 and the NEX 7. I got the 7 mainly because of size..

on the A77 I have the Tamron set of 17-50 2.8, the 70-200 2.8 and 60 macro 2.0. All are relatively large. I was considering getting the Sony 35mm 1.8 which is smallish and may even take the A77 easier to carry around.. (Not as small as the NEX nut doable?)

i fly 3-4 times a month on business and am curious if anyone here uses the DLSR as their "travel carry" camera and how that works for you..


I fly 3 days a week, keep my a77  with zeiss 16-80 or 70-300 g in my soft briefcase at all times.. No special padding and the briefcase gets dropped or thrown around all the issues so far. Used to use the a55 because its smaller but the larger body fits just fine in my bag...

ps.. Can't find a pix post function on the iPad version of dpreview, is it hiding somewhere?
