A65 and A77 same EVF // Same Sensor


  • Better (heavier) body
  • Better control set dials, joystick etc.
  • Lens Micro adjust.. really critical if shooting lenses at wider apertures with narrow DOF.

Current deal is with a free grip at Amazon and some other dealers still.. you have to add it to the shopping cart and price is zeroed out.

You can sell the grip for $150 to $200 as new on Ebay... So A77 is really $600-650

All good advice. As a A65 owner I am pretty happy, however I am also a fussy person and if I was to buy at current pricing differences I would no doubt go A77. The other features I would like is wider auto bracketing (A65 is useless in this), extra dial, ISO50, LCD 3 axis pivot, AF assist lamp and I would pay the extra for them now that the prices are a lot closer. In fact seriously looking to swap over myself, even if there is a A77MKII imminent it will be priced too high for me I'm sure.
