Re: Would like to upgrade from A55 to ?

I upgraded from the A55 to A77 ii. Early days for me (< 1 week), but the difference in speed of Autofocus is stunning, as is the coverage of the larger number of focus points. It has practically made my Minolta 100-400 APO lens come back to life, wasn't quite happy with its focusing before. Consider these two focusing aspects for birds & wildlife.

Camera size is bigger, but...

Size when paired with a large lens - your Sony 70-400 is larger than the Minolta 100-400 by quite a bit - does not stand out. Its only the budget primes that highlight the size difference (in my case the 50/1.7).

Weight of A77 ii is not bad. Its a bigger camera but not proportionally heavier (specs say 650g vs 500g of A55).
