Sony Alpha SLT-A77V photos
The A77 looks and feels sturdily built, and its magnesium-alloy body is weather- and dust-sealed. So is the new 16-50mm f2.8 lens, which will be offered as one of the kit options.
Sony's new articulating display flips, tilts, and rotates in all directions--except out, as is typical.
The camera has a top LCD readout. You can also see the new stereo microphone in front of the hot shoe.
The A77 has no shortage of manual controls, though it looks like you still have to use the screen or custom program the buttons for direct access to options like metering.
I wish the A77 (and other cameras like it) had 2 SD slots like the Nikon D7000.
The camera's got a full complement of connectors, including a remote and mic input. As the "V" in the name indicates, it's also got GPS for geotagging.
