Sony A77 Mark II Review - Verdict

Sony A77 Mark II front on

The first Sony Alpha 77 - or Mark I if you will - posed a serious threat to the APS-C DSLR duopoly of Canon and Nikon with its impressive specification and performance, thus making the three-year wait for a replacement frustrating for many Sony fans.

The arrival of the Sony Alpha 77 Mark II, however, signifies a successful return to the A mount area. The model boasts solid build quality, great handling and is simple to use.

While image quality does struggle a touch at the higher ISO settings and under closer scrutiny, images on the whole are pleasing out of the camera.

The improvements to the model's AF system, meanwhile, push the A77 II further in to the domain of the sports and wildlife photographers.

On the whole, with the Alpha 77 Mark II Sony has brought a host of advanced functionality to a consumer DSLT and as such is well worthy of consideration.
