A77 seems to have the edge technically, But it wont translate to better pictures automatically.


The side by side comparo on dpreview.com btween the 7D and A77, the 7D and 60D perform much better at high ISO

Everyone is cussing at this A77 release due to already having something a little older and a little less awesome technically. But I say that AMAZING photography is about the quality of the eye and the size of your heart!
