The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:tropicalization; stabilization; fully articulated display; flexibility of use; excellent raw despite age; velocity... despite age
Cons:battery life, but if you turn off some things it's pretty good
Opinion:it came after an a37, which as far as I paid for it was still great, but the jump in "class" was abysmal. very usable and still in step with the times. the body has a "tolerable" weight and good ergonomics. with lenses of the same quality still gives valuable. it is the machine with which to take advantage of the results that some glorious minolta lenses (and not only), such as the 100 macro or the 24 f2.8, can give. if you have the habit of post-production you work quietly up to 3200, accepting some compromise even 6400 iso (I use dxo). compared to a modern machine it is normal that it is "disadvantaged" but with the right lenses it guarantees autofocus in step with the times in many respects, including autofocus.
Cons:battery, slight overheating of the main display
Opinion:coming from an A58, so this A77 ii is better in all! the shot is much more muffled and silent, slightly more stabilized for low light photos without tripods, the camera body seems lighter (due to the larger size), the buttons are all where they should be, and I'm happy, focus fast but often invasive, ie framing for example a room or a landscape, tends to focus on objects in unwanted areas and often you have to try automatically to press the AF button several times until it detects the right subject (this only in focusing completely automatic) .rnthe battery has a good life (obviously less than the competition) and one flaw that I found is that after about ten minutes of use the right side of the display heats up a lot and you feel a lot on the cheek when you then use the viewfinder (the display was set to auto brightness). rnprovate various photos in closed environments with little light and up to 3200 iso photos are well defined, over a little flaw butthe system works well and manages to clean a little noise (in automatic mode and jpg) .rnfantastic continuous shooting at 12 photos per second ... I did a single test (raw) and has not entered the crisis by shooting in 3 seconds over 30 photos from 24mb each.
Opinion:According to me are more pros that cons regarding the electronic viewfinder the fact to actually see what shots from many advantages. Build quality is very good very fast and responsive with a good picture quality and great detail up to 1600 ISO is not by particular problems fast focus and fairly accurate. The machine-gun burst is when you need it in my opinion quite light and versatile with Zeiss 16/80 and 70/300 G make a great lightweight kit and also travel.
Pros:fast and precise AF, burst, ergonomics, compatibility with optical Minolta, numerous physical controls, customizable buttons, excellent electronic viewfinder lag-free.
Cons:Invasive noise from ISO 3200 onwards (relatively clean files up to 1600 ISO), battery life (is the price of the electronic viewfinder).
Opinion:And 'born and designed to portray fast moving subjects, the 24 Megapixel then help a lot in very useful crop in birdlife and sport.rnAutofocus as a reference for its segment (79 points including 15 cross) thanks to slt.rnOttimi systems technology tracking and recognition of faces from, combined with the extensive selection of af sensors, continuous focus and fast burst make a quick sniper rifle. rnPer the uninitiated, the SLT (Translucent mirror) consists of a semi-transparent fixed mirror placed at 45 ° in front of the mirror sensore.rnTale diverts about 30% of the light from the sensor to the sensors AF.rnIn this way it is possible to ' use of detection by phase and contrast contemporaneamente.rnLa techn. Slt coupled to the electronic viewfinder produces a machine that shows real-time, in the viewfinder and on the monitor, the variations of the various parameters on the show even before scattare.rnIl downside is not really an excellent performance at high ISO, compared to current APS-C competitors that make better (well until 1600, bad in 6400,compromise with loss of detail in 3200) and battery life (but decent) because of the double electronic monitor (the normal one and the viewfinder) .rnIl Jpeg machine is very soft (from 800 ISO and up) because the algorithm denoising rather invasivo.rnBuona the DRO management of lights and shadows on jpeg.rnOttime dynamic range and depth of 16-50 colore.rnIl 2.8 provided in the kit fits great with this machine, very good lens to start and covers all the "common" needs with good brightness and a pleasant sfocato.rnSecondo me is a very good car, that makes ergonomics and speed his best weapons, is not the most suitable for shooting in low light conditions, but can say her in all other contexts.
Pros:Autofocus, focus peaking, tilt monitor, construction, s-video format xavc rn
Cons:They say noise at high ISO, but honestly very clean up to 1600 ISO file, assuming you know exhibit.
Opinion:Check the first version already excellent as APS-C, this version has significantly improved in many ways. The autofocus is one of the best around, with a good coverage area, personalized according to the shooting situation. rnIl focus peaking is perfect for studio work of still life, the monitor turns 360 degrees, and you always see the shot optimally. rnNon last video section, which in addition to the famous autofocus in automatic mode, with the latest update to the new format saves video xavc-s to 50 Mb / s bit rate. rnNon obviously takes the ISO to a full frame, but up to 1600 ISO I find it perfect, as long as you know how to use the histogram to display. rnQuindi conclude that I think if the plays and wins in some aspects with the latest Canon 7d mark2.
