    Nice shots Mike. The ZA135 makes a useful fast 200mm on the A77. Any of these kids yours?

    They certainly look smart in their "strip" too, it must be pretty dry still in C.A! My grandsons are usually covered in mud within 10 minutes of starting a football match at this time of year. Roll on the cricket season again!

    Thanks Dave. Yes, my daughter is on the team, but I prefer not reveal her identity on any public sites (hope you understand).

    We are blessed with good weather this Fall in California, although we got a heavy dose of rain this past weekend. Here's another game shot plus a few training shots...

    Mike keep her in soccer , a great sport for young girls . My daughter played right through senior year in high school and started at 4 years old. Kept her out of a lot of trouble. LOL

    Its a great sport for kids wish more kids would get involved.

    Yesterday evening the joint successor of my R1 and my (sold) A700 arrived, the A65. Here are some shots from an early morning walk. It's too early for a résumé, but I can say I already like it a lot.

    ISO 400 raw





    AUTO-HDR (jpg) ISO 200





    From the the same place, ISO 400, raw, 300mm SAL70-300G



    A crop of the same photo, 12 MP like the A700



    AUTO-HDR jpg, ISO 200, with some PP


    ISO 800 raw, original (downsized) and crop, 100% (not downsized)

    Hi There Hans
    Congratulations - congratulations on your new camera - I hope you find the EVF as acceptable as we are here.
    I won't try a deconstruction, but I really like the first and third shots.

    HI Mike
    Nice shots - and I think I can recognise the Hatam genes . . . . and I certainly don't mind about the anonymity (but I don't think I understand!)

    Funny - over here Soccer is definitely a man's game - of course, there are girls teams, but they're few and far between, and rather like girls doing wrestling or boxing!

    all the best

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    Jono - women's soccer is very big here in the US, and especially in California. My daughter's biggest dream is to play for Stanford University (the top program in the country), and she fanstasizes about playing for the US National Team in the World Cup (idolizing Abby Wambauch and Hope Solo).

    Her soccer academy trains year round (48 weeks per year), with 3-4 training sessions per week, and games every weekend (usually two per weekend). At last count, we have gone to over 50 of her games so far this year.

    Girls have a great opportunity to get in to these serious academy Soccer (Futbol) programs in the US, and get college scholarships if they are top performers. So it's become a big industry.

    In terms of anonymity, my wife and I just feel more comfortable for our daughters saftey if there are not published photos of her (identified) online. We're probably being over-cautious, but there are some strange people out there...

    Thanks for the compliments on the shots. I'm still new to the Sony system, and still figuring out how to squeeze the most out of it, but the Zeiss 135 is certainly my favorite lens at this point.

    HI Mike
    well . . . we have boys, which may be why we're more casual!
    the Zeiss 135 I think is a thing of beauty and wonder . . . now I'm loving the 180 Leica on the NEX5 too!

    I fully understand your concerns Mike. Mind you we have gone completely overboard with child protection legislation here in the UK.

    For instance, it would not be possible for myself or any other doting parent, grandparent or friends, let alone a stranger to take the wonderful photographs you have shown us here of innocent children playing serious sport without first obtaining the permission of both parents of every child of each team playing in the match!

    This rule is usually but not always strictly applied particularly in state schools or academies. I discovered for instance that at my eldest grandson's private school, the rules are not so obviously applied, as I was just "interviewed" very discreetly by a member of the school staff soon after I commenced assembling my A900 with 200-500 lens! I was at the school's cricket match where he was playing another school which turned out to be a close match but Toby's side won! I shot some memorable action shots for his bedroom wall!

    My eldest daughter (Toby's mother) who is also a very keen photographer would never allow me to post any images of her children on the internet and so I don't. I do have a photograph of her on my website though taken when she was only 18 months old but as that was about 45 years ago, she has let that one pass!

    I have ten grandchildren most at different schools in different parts of the UK and although the "rules" are usually applied there are differences in their interpretation.

    By law, anyone working with children in the UK, even if giving their time voluntarily, ie Scout groups, cadet forces or sports activities have to have a police clearance certificate for EVERY activity. This has led inevitably to an acute shortage of volunteers offering to work with children. This is not because we are a nation of "Kiddie fiddlers" but simply because folk don't want the repeated hassle and intrusion into their private lives.

    Fortunately there are stalwarts who keep the organisations just about going but many others are closing their doors. Sad days for children IMHO.

    OK, I'm now off my soap box! Just keep up the good work Mike and good luck to your daughter. I am sure that she and her other team players love your action photographs. She should, as they are really great and a good testimony of your own skills as well as proving the A77 as a quality image making instrument.
    Cheers, Dave

    Thanks, Jono.
    The EVF of the A65/A77 is so good that I usually take it for an OVF except when the white balance is wrong. But Sony have missed the opportunity to position it similarly to the R1, i.e. more to the left side so that your nose is not pressed against the camera. (The Nex-7 will get that right.) Otherwise the A65 is a joy to use, particularly the absence of the mirror-clap (and its vibration) is a blessing.
    In real-life use I find photos from ISO 3200 on too noisy except in bright light when I don't need it and except in "Hand-Held Twilight" mode which is really a no-nonsense feature. Somehow this 24MP camera creates kind of a new Pointillism when photos are viewed at 100%; later, in normal sizes, most of the noise has disappeared again. It's true, the high ISOs are a little disappointing because we like to have everything at no cost, but kept in perspective the higher resolution at low ISOs is for me more important.

    Here are some shots from last night:

    hand-held twilight, ISO 6400 f3,2 1/80




    Raw ISO 1600 f2,0 1/200



    Raw ISO 1600 f2,0 1/30

    Nice shots Albert. Where in Germany were these taken? In my working days I used to work in Sindelfingen and Nurtingen and I have fond memories of Germany, especially at this time of the year.

    Hi Albert - lovely stuff - I like the first one best; the composition does it for me.

    . . . . . . ...

    Something terrible happened to Caspar on Monday (it makes me cross my legs to think about it).

    But - as you can see, he's feeling better now!

    A77 with SZ 24-70 (it really is very good on the A77)

    Jono,

    If Caspar needs a place to hide out for a while....send him over.

    In Texas that sort of thing is not discussed much.

    I find that the whole Low T thing is way over rated...of course you would expect that at my age.

    What a beautiful guy....he seems more stately and imposing as the years pass...not something I can say for the majority of us.

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    We have a new member of the family!

    To be precise he really belongs to my daughter's family but we are all Boxer mad, starting the kids off whilst young with Ben, then eldest daughter had Oscar followed by Humphrey, whilst our son has Monty...all boxers of course!

    Humphrey passed on earlier this year and is now replaced by this little scamp who goes by the name of (but doesn't yet answer to) "Charlie". Charlie is just seven weeks old.

    I used the A77 with built in flash and CZ 16-80.

    Bob - I'm afraid there was no place to hide for Caspar . . . . but he's getting his own back by being just as 'in your face' as he was before!
    Dave - that boxer is wonderful (I like boxers too) Keeping his balls well hidden for the time being I see!

    Some from this morning. Nasty chilly weather with an occasional glint of sunshine.
    All with the A77 and the 24-70 SZ - it's a sweet combination . . . so sweet that thoughts of the 16-35 are rearing their ugly heads again!

    Thank you Joe
    I was pleased with that shot as well. I couldn't get hold of the 16-50, but actually, I'm beginning to think that the 35-105 equivalent of the SZ might be more enticing anyway - of course it's bigger, but not that much bigger - I carried it around in one hand for a couple of hours today without a problem.

    In the city we live on the river near the mouth of the harbour in what used to be all docklands, now slowly being redeveloped. The afternoon light sets over the harbour and points down the river at a certain time - mostly unremarkable but set against a backdrop of storm clouds sometimes the quality of light is stunning splashing against older warehouses or office skyscrapers further up the river..I squeezed a few snaps this afternoon..probably not thte ideal lens for the job - a 135 ( it is the only lens I have for the A77 at the moment.)

    With the Nikon D4 announced (and priced out of my league) my upgrade path from my D700 has become a bit muddy. Has anyone shot ballet with the A77? How good is the Sony 70-200 G zoom vs. the Nikkor 70-200 VR1? What kind of battery life are you guys getting in the real world?

    etrigan63....I am quite sure D800 is almost ready for the market, with 36MP Sony sensor and I do not think A77 is in anyway closer to D700 in terms of IQ....just my personal experience. As for the lens, both are very good choices and both needs upgrade. That comes the place for VR2 and perhaps a newer Sony
    Nikon is always good at power management. My a77 needs many more batteries. One fully charged can be used for 300 shots.

    Hi Tom
    Silas swears by it . . .I can't really excuse it as I already have the Zeiss 24-70 etc.
    it feels, looks and handles nicely - that I can say.

    Nice one Mark - and that 35 f1.8 is a nice little lens isn't it - and such good value for money as well!

    Mark - that's lovely

    I've just received and fitted the A mount to my £300 Leica 70-200 f4 . . . but no time to shoot yet.

    Here's a chilly shot with the 16-80 at f4




    Here's one with the Zeiss 24 f2 (what a nice lens, but not $200!)

    C'mon guys......I keep looking and looking here for those A77 shots with that FINE A-mount glass.

    I guess the NEX 7 is just the better camera.....

    Well ok, have been snowed under with work and moving office... but the rain came down, and then in the early AM I put on the Tamron 70-300mm USD and caught the rain drops on this little Tea Rose.. about 3cm in size, a little beauty.

    I find this lens on the A77 is an amazing combination, still no complaints with the A77, did a 5 week trip to the UK over Christmas, and it served me well.

    Thanks Rich, appreciate the comment.... as Chief Dan George said in a movie... "sometimes the magic works, sometimes it doesn't" but I am finding the A77 and a few select lenses make it work for me most of the time.

    Jono: I especially like the first one: warm, rich, color and shiny bits. I took the A77 out to play on the weekend. Now, I'm contemplating a little more A-mount glass.

    It amazes me at just how good some of the Tamron glass is when used on Sony cameras. I am not a third party glass kinda guy but years ago I knew some Minolta glass was rebadged Tamron glass. Figured if it was good enough for Minolta then I needed to see if they were good enough for me. I know one rebadged Tamron was my 28-75 f2.8 and it is still a favorite of mine today.

    Thanks Matt
    The A77 really is rather good isn't it - I always thought the Olympus E1 was the perfect sized camera (and I wasn't alone). The A77 is actually exactly the same size (despite appearances).

    I really like the 70-300G - it's small, decent IQ, quiet to focus and not a silly price. Of course, the 70-210 is faster - but it's also twice the price and nearly twice the weight.

    . . then there's the 24mm Zeiss . . . and the 135 f1.8 . . .

    Jim, I had a visitor here earlier this year from an Australian photographer who also posts here. He is an A77 user and he has a good collection of Tamron lenses which he allowed me to try. I only have the one Tamron 200-500 and I really enjoy using it. He also mentioned to me that Sony have a substantial financial stake in Tamron! Certainly the Tamrons seem to suit Sony Alpha cameras rather better IMHO than Sigma lenses.

    Yeah I heard Sony owns 20% of Tamron .... It makes sense.

    Just got my A77 last week. I hope to add some shots to this soon. I have a 70-200 but I think I will swap that for the 70-300 because the 70-200 is just WAY too big for me physically.

    HiredArm: Great! The 70-300mm is supposed to be an excellent lens. I've been lusting after the 70-200, but, it is big.

    Yeah I also read about a new or revised 70-200 coming out later this year. I should post a comparison between my largest Leica lens (90 Summicron and the 70-200.) It's ridiculous because the A77 really isn't all that large. Actually it fits my hands really well. Just want to read some 70-300 reviews but the results look good here.

    That'll be interesting ... the current Sony 70-200/2.8 APO is already super fabulous, (IMO, better than the Canon or Nikon versions I used previously) ... so I can't imagine what they'll do to it to improve it even more. Maybe they are looking to a 70-200/4 or 3.5 to get the size down for the newer cameras?

    Wish Sony would work on lenses that are lacking or missing. A modern 35/1.4 ASPH with floating element for close focus and better lens coatings would be nice, as would a pro spec 50mm f/1.2 ... and even maybe a TS wide-angle, or a 100 APO macro.
