Wouldn't you know it. After all that emo-angst I wrote yesterday about how I wasn't worthy and it was a waste for me to spend all that cash on new camera gear, Sony comes along and blows those self-rightous platitudes completely out of the water with their announcement of the α700 replacement, the SLT α77.
I. Want. One. Now.
Well, not quite this very minute. I'll wait for the official product release, and then let it get reviewed by the usual guilty parties, mix in the requisite amount of salt with the conclusions, and see if it's worth purchasing. Until then, it's standard operating procedure with the standard camera gear I currently have.
According to Camera Gearguide:
- It uses the same fixed mirror-technology first introduced with the α33 and α55
- It is supposed to have an Exmore-based rear-illuminated 20+ megapixel APS-C sensor
- Cost as much as the Canon 60D
Will Sony Sue Themselves?!
