Sony A77


So the the lightning fast full time auto focus, transparent mirror Sony A77 DSLR has been available, who's excited? Hmm, not myself at the moment. 24 megapixels (more than Canon 5D Mark II), Image stabilization (built in to the Body - not lens), 12 fps burst rate (faster than Canon 7D), Full 1080p capable at 60fps or 24fps, 19 auto focus points, built in GPS, HDR, 3D Panoramic sweep, and more. Looks like a solid camera at a great price point and tons of features, but bad timing for me. I'm personally holding out to hear other news from Canon this year. For Sony shooters who are looking to go the A77 route, you can find them available now at B&H (click here)

Sony's latest NEX-5n has been getting quite a bit of press lately. It never seems to have hit the shelves over at B&H yet, but it's been in and out of stock over at Amazon. Today both versions with and without lens is available in limited quantities (click here).

A nice camera indeed with full 1080/60fps and excellent low light capabilities, but I feel some people are saving up a few hundred extra dollars for the NEX7 or A77.
