    A77 to be released in October!!!!

    According to Sony Rumors the release date for the A77 is in October. Is it going to be worth the wait? Or should I just get the A580?

    Lightbulb My opinion ...

    Cut your teeth on the new aspects of the α580, because images won't wait. You know the drill, Frank.

    Then sell it and grab an α77 when they come out and get Christmas!

    I'm just sayin' ...

    That is what I was thinking. The A580 has to be 100 times better than my a100.

    Thanks

    Well, at least 5.8 times better if my math is correct.

    Red face What sits around, comes back around ...

    Just wait until the parts are sold as scrap to Mexico and come back to the USA resurrected into aluminum kitchen table legs. You'll get some nasty burns sitting down to dinner .. and your future kids may look a little funny.
