Sony Alpha a77 II review
Test score %
- Single Lens Translucent
The Sony Alpha a77 II is the successor to the Best Buy award-winning Alpha a77; one of Sony's second-generation single-lens-translucent (SLT) cameras, and a fearsome rival to conventional DSLRs. The original model was a high-performance camera that took excellent photos and video, though it was a pretty weighty beast to hold. The sequel isn't noticeably lighter, but how does it measure up on picture quality and speed?
