Re: a700 user late to the a77 party - wow, what a camera !

I have just bought the sony a77 as well, bought used in mint condition at almost half the new price.

i wasnt sure about getting a a77 for a while, cause i have the excellent nex6 with several nex lens:

sony sel 16-50, sel 35mm 1.8, sel 50mm 1.8 and the sel 55-210mm, but i aslo have he la-ea2 adapter and a tamron 90mm 2.8 macro and a sigma 70-200 2.8 os.

and they all worked well on the nex6..

but i have always been intrigue with the a77, just wasnt sure if it was worth it.

im glad i did, just the handling is awsome, just feels right in my hands, the controls are all there, the speed is nice, it just feels right.

i got the sony 18-135mm to go with it, and a zeiss 16-35,  and a sony 35mm 1.8,  the sigma 70-200 os feels way better on it as well and performs really good.

i will keep the nex for travel and when i need to carry light and it also has better low light performance.

and when i want to go out and shoot the a77 will be my workhorse.
