the focus is more on the white wall, that's why the bird itself looks blurry, if you just look at the white wall part, there isn't much noise and would be a good wall shot

Yup the focus is also an issue here. However looking at Brian's A65 photos 3200 ISO, I think I might have gotten one of the noisy A77s out there. My eyes can see noise even at ISO 100 (when zoomed in 100%). I am comparing 24MP Nikon D7100 photos (the only other reference I have as test files) and the sky has zero noise at ISO 100. So instead of having buyers remorse, I ended up ordering a A99 body only from eBay 6ave for $2023 (I think that's a good deal as other retailers are selling it for $2798).

Sorry but the A77 is back on its way before my return period ends (end of Jan).

For me, since the cost was not an issue, I should have waited to see more comparisons of the A99 vs A77. I hope the A99 lives up to its expectations, considering its more than twice the price of the A77 (body). My bundle of the A77 and DT1650 was $1400 so in essence I paid $600 more. Since I already have the 70300G and the Minolta 50mm, both of which are FF lenses, I think I made a wise decision (at least my conscience thinks so).
