Sure looks like I need not worry about trading in my a77 for the a7 or 7r. They have so many flaws, clumsy controls and poor image quality issues, my a77 is so much more camera, especially for the money. You can't even use them for studio strobes without the black screen problem.

The a77 is just an APS-C camera, but what a camera! Versatility and image quality second to none and great lenses. And a whole lot more!

A childish post and from a Sony user no less..... embarrassing.    But if you're going to bash a camera you've never used (or make comments that make it seem like you've never used it but have been reading too many internet comments) then at least back up your statements with some specific details - what flaws have you experienced, what controls do you consider clumsy and what image quality issues are you referring to?  And I'd also recommend not making totally ridiculous comments about the A77 having IQ second to none.  I guess technically you're correct as it's not 2nd at all but might sneak into the top 10 in terms of Sony cameras and it probably doesn't make the list at all when you include Nikon, Canon, Fuji, etc.  It used to mean something to talk about the great 24mp sensor at base ISO.....   but those are a dime a dozen these days with the other 24mp cameras outperforming the A77.  And yes there are some great A mount lenses -- many of which are better suited for the A7 or A7r over the A77.  I'd take the 20f2.8, 24f2, 16-35, 24-70, and quite a few others on the A7 over the A77.  The only thing in your post that makes any sense is that the A77 is a great camera especially at the price.
