From the Manufacturer
Never miss a moment with 12fps
The Sony a77II has the world's fastest continuous shooting speed in its class1-up to 12 frames per second at full resolution. Equipped with a 79 point AF sensor and advanced auto focus tracking, technology, you never have to miss a moment. The Sony a77II outperforms even more expensive rivals with continuous auto focus and auto exposure when shooting at 12fps at full 24.3MP resolution and can capture up to 60 frames in a single burst when in JPEG fine setting.
World's Most AF points2- 79-point Phase Detection AF System
The Sony a77II is equipped with a newly developed phase detection auto focus system, featuring wide coverage 79 AF points. Fifteen of the AF points are cross-type and placed in the most-frequently-used central area of the sensor. This helps the Sony a77II achieve accurate focusing even with horizontally striped subjects, which line-type AF points typically find challenging. The new AF system also performs well in low-light conditions-as low as EV -2 (ISO 100), which is similar to a moonlit night under which objects are difficult to see even with the naked eye. The new AF algorithm instantly recognizes and reliably tracks the desired subject. The a77II also realizes impressive focusing accuracy, even when a large-aperture lens is mounted, thanks to the f/2.8 AF point placed horizontally in the center of the AF sensor overlapping another AF point.
24.3 Megapixel Stunning Resolution
The Sony a77II houses a large APS-C sensor with approx. 24.3 effective megapixels for incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements. Its high resolving power adopts the same gapless on-chip lens structure as the ?7R and features the latest-generation RGB color filter and other cutting-edge device technologies developed by Sony, the number 1 manufacturer of image sensors. The Sony a77II's image sensor exhibits approximately 20% higher sensitivity and lower noise levels compared to the a77 throughout a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600.
Advanced BIONZ X image processing
The Sony a77II is equipped with the same BIONZ® X image processing engine as on the top-of-the-line full-frame models-a7 and a7R. This engine achieves approximately three times the processing speed of previous BIONZ and features all the latest image processing technologies, which are optimized for this model. The result is astonishingly high-speed processing capabilities as well as faithfully reproduced textures and amazing definition.
Detail reproduction technology; enhances fine details
Strong outlines a common characteristic of digital images, are minimized as much as possible to achieve finely detailed images with a natural three-dimensional appearance and naturally depicts subjects as seen by human vision. This increases the ability to depict detailed textures and brings photography another step closer to creating totally realistic, high-quality images
Diffraction-reducing technology maximizes the optical performance of lenses and produces finer details when shooting with a small aperture setting. Optimal filter processing-that best matches the f-number-is applied to correct image points that are blurred, preventing diffraction effects that become an issue when shooting with a deep depth of field and high pixel count. You can therefore depend on finely detailed images even when shooting with a small aperture setting.
Clean Low Light Images with Low Noise and Area-Specific Noise Reduction
The a77II has a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25,600 for faster shutter speeds and low-light shooting situations. Combined with detail reproduction technology, area-specific noise reduction effectively suppresses noise and realize high-sensitivity images resulting in fine details and less grain from corner to corner.
Instant Sharing via Smartphone with Build-in Wi-Fi® and NFC
Connectivity with smartphones has been simplified with Wi-Fi® and NFC control for one-touch sharing. Simply tap the camera to another NFC-enabled device like a tablet or smartphone and photos are transferred with just one touch.

Have put off buying a new camera for while, but need an upgrade from my A700, and boy am I glade I waited, so far all my test shots have come back grade. Camera does so ,much more than my A700 it will take a while to learn allit will do, and the 16 to 50 mm lens is great! The only complaint 7s the battery life , but with 4 spare batteries I wont mind a bit.

Fast focusing, sharp images. Multiple ways to customize the camera settings
The Sony a77m2 is a great performer. 12 fps is awesome. The hybrid autofocus makes getting the shot fun and easy. Focus peaking let's you nail focus with fast lensed. For the price. You can't beat the Sony a77m2.
Use camera for nature and landscape photography. Excellent noise characteristics at 3200 & even at 6400 ISO. Love the viewfinder that shows what the camera is shooting. The instruction manual is the worst I have ever used. It measures 4x6 inches and is poorly organized.
Definitely not a good camera to work in the studio, it is very hard focusing in low exposure in openings from 8 on the display turns black and is very complicated to frame and focus. Definitely not what I expected from the translucent mirror, in many ways it's awesome, but not what I need.
The A-77II is an excellent camera with many very special features at a very low price. The electronic viewfinder is a true game changer as you see exactly what you are going to get. With 100% image view and high rez detail, I would not want to go back to a traditional viewfinder. The 12 shot per second feature is terrific! The only problem with the camera is the instruction manual which is barely 3x5 in size and without an index.
Love it very easy to use, and is worth every penny. I love taking photos of my dogs swimming, playing or just laying around. This camera suits my needs. I have tried other brands, but the action shot photos would always come out blurry, Not with the sony
The new A-77II is an outstanding camera and a great improvement over the A-77. Faster focus in low light conditions and much improved noise characteristics. Excellent object tracking for action. Great improvement in buffer for both jpgs and raw images. The new menu does require some readjustment in use.
I recently upgraded from Sony Alpha A580 - and I love the A77II! It has only been a few weeks, but the quality is exceptional, still lots to learn. I wish the buffer was faster, but I'm use to A580, so this is a real upgrade!
Good: *Fast continuous speed with extra buffer *improved focusing system Not so good: *Takes long time to clear buffer (I use SanDisk Extreme PRO speed up to 280MB/s) *Can't review photo until buffer is cleared
Landscape ...Portraits Focus points ..sharp images, accurate focus points. Not Full Frame
