I purchased this camera from Panamoz and could not decide between this and a similarly priced Canon but am I glad I chose the Sony Alpha A77 combined with a Tamron 18-270mm lens as the features are fantastic and fairly easily found on the menu. I have only had the camera less than a week but the super 24.5M sensor, speeds to 1/8000, very useful toys and the sharp lens have produced some really awesome photos. Well done Sony and Tamron.
If you don't like heavy cameras then this will not suit you but the magnesium body makes for a really tough camera. My other SLR (Olympus) now feels quite fragile by comparison. I decided to buy a grey import as the savings of £400 were significant and I still get a one year warranty from Panamoz who have a base in this country. From ordering to delivery (via UPS) took under 5 days. Super service from Panamoz and friendly too.
