When I wrote about my first impressions of the Sony A77 last month, it received an overwhelming response and it became very clear to me that this is a hot camera right now. After spending about a month shooting with it, I can now clearly see why. This is the first Sony camera I have used that I feel properly competes with the likes of Canon and Nikon. Competition drives innovation, and I think a camera like this could be just what the market needs to drive pro-sumer DSLRs even further. But does it live up to the hype?
