    Marc it is my understanding the changes to the 70-200 and 70-400 will be weatherproofing and Nano lens coatings.

    Rumor of a new focus motor as well similar to the motor in the new 500 f4.... guess we will have to wait to find out for sure.

    Bill that Coucal is amazing... I had never seen one in my life until a few months ago when one appeared in my yard in Brisbane, Australia.... now yours, not quite the same as this one, but definitely a relative. Thanks for posting that, now I have two in my list to view.

    Great shots all around. Just back from China, and lots of photos to fiddle with.
    The A77 really is a nice camera to use.
    Here's one from XingPing on the Li River:

    Thanks for sharing your Coucal, Phil - I learn something on this site every day!

    I really like the a77 with the 70-400G for wildlife. It has the FOV of a 600 mm and enough pixels that you can do some serious cropping. (I took the a900 with the 24-70 for general shooting.)

    Lots of great stuff Bill - love the black and white trees particularly.
    Matt - like the first shot through the window particularly.

    Here's a quiet moment just before sunset on the Li river:

    Lovely Matt - that 70-300G is a fine lens (I just carried it all around China!)

    is the X-pro1 yours or Ashwin's?

    I'd love to meet up with you guys, but it's a bit of a long trek!

    I'd love to meet up with you guys, but it's a bit of a long trek!
    Jono: It came in for me, last week. I passed, based on its size and potentially, not so good, performance with M glass. If it was the size of the X100, I might have got it. Fortunately, it wasn't, and I avoided another expensive (not by Leica standards, of course) tangential system purchase. Ashwin passed, also (unless he went back that afternoon?).

    The 70-300 is a fine lens. It be a great zoom for a trip like yours.

    It be fun to meet up with you too. This Tuesday, Ashwin and I, are going to meet Lloyd and his wife Mimi. They're passing through Seattle on their way back to SLC. We're going to see if we can talk Lloyd into a shared photo trip to the Utah Canyon Lands, later this year. He'd be a terrific guide.

    Bill: Your Africa shots are wonderful!!

    Cheers, Matt

    My feelings exactly - the NEX7 makes a fine p&s with the kit lens, and a reasonable backup with Leica M and R lenses - total flexibility (I was amazed to realise that the NEX7 actually will take every lens I have). Added to which the Zeiss focuses so close as to be almost a macro lens!

    In Terry's situation with no M9 and no M glass it would be a different situation: It's obviously a grand camera.

    For most of the trip it was the only lens I had on the A77 (we left a lot of stuff in Hangzhou while we behaved like hippies on the Li river). I had 2 M9 bodies with a couple of lenses (28 'cron, 50 'lux 75 'cron), and the A77 with the 70-300 - it worked really well

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    A question for those of you who have used the A77 extensively: How loud is the shutter noise? I ask (and for those who already know the question, I beg forgiveness) because when I shoot professional ballet performances, keeping the shutter noise down is very appealing to the theater owners and their patrons. My D700 sounds like a .38 going off in a quiet theater. I got a chance to handle an A77 at Photo Plus Expo but that was in a noisy convention center. The lack of mirror slap noise must make this a quieter system, but I would like the opinion of those who have used it extensively.

    With rumors of a full frame SLT on the horizon and the chance to shoot with Zeiss glass, Sony's offerings are appealing to me especially if they come under the price of the Canon 5D Mk III.

    Gentlemen: Very nice!
    Carlos: I'll have to differ to someone who's used it in a venue like that. It's noticeable when you're the photographer, but, it seems less sharp.

    I've never used a D700 to compare it to but I can compare it in the morning in shuter noise level between the 5 cameras I do own (M9, A77, G1, NEX-5, and D-Lux 4.) I can say it's definitely audible but it's a more muted sound than the loud clack the NEX-5 makes

    Bill,
    Great wildlife images from South Africa. A little bit different from the New Forest eh!!

    I was there (Kruger) in February this year with my A77 and 70-300G, I left the 70-400 at home as I also took the A900 as back-up and for the wider angle stuff so that both were ready at any given time!

    Did you safari in the Kruger National Park? We stayed at "Jock" camp, we had excellent game drives by early morning (04.30am!) and at night. I'm sure that I recognise that cow elephant!!

    After Botswana, the fenced and gated camps were a surprise as was the loaded heavy bore shotgun with the guide on the game drives! Both were forbidden by law in Botswana.

    The A77 is a wonderful wildlife camera which really comes into it's own on night safari as the EVF light gain allows focusing accurately and the built in flash is just powerful enough, if close enough!

    A couple of examples of night drive images taken with the A77+70-300G, the first is a Spotted Haena and then a Spotted Eagle Owl both taken in complete darkness except for a very dim windscreen spot light and my A77 flash!

    The A900 couldn't see the subjects with it's optical VF.!
    Cheers, Dave

    That owl shot is fantastic Dave, well done! I agree, that the EVF at night is a life saver, who cares if it is grainy, you only need it for framing and maybe focus. I just got back from 3 weeks in Canada, the A77 served me well.

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    Thanks for kind comment, Dave. Sounds like we had somewhat similar safaris - I was at Singita (Sand River) adjacent to Kruger for 3 or 4 days then went on to Mombo Camp in Botswana. From a wildlife perspective I prefer the Okavango delta - but the chef at Singita was trained by Jamie Oliver and the food was fantastic!

    I certainly agree with you on the a77 in low light, though I prefer not to use flash - but your owl is a big winner! I'll post one of mine of an African Eagle Owl tomorrow.

    And you're right - I don't remember the New Forest having quite so much wildlife!

    Carlos - re the noise of the a77. It's much quieter than the a900 and a bit quieter than the a700. I have just listened to it next to my M9 and I'd say they're about the same.

    Sorry I don't have a D700 to compare, but I'm fairly sure the a77 would be quieter - as you say, there is no mirror noise.

    This my rendition of the iconic "Lilac Breasted Roller" seen throughout Southern Africa but is the adopted national bird of Botswana.

    The second image is of a "Blue Waxbill" another African bird. Both images were taken with the A77 and 70-300G lens at some unearthly time in the morning whilst on safari!

    Thanks Bill, I appreciate that!

    Lovely series, BTW. I am afraid I will never make it to the Dark Continent in my lifetime. Lack of money and zero desire to be there. But your photos are great!

    OK, here's my African Eagle Owl, twilight, no flash. ISO 400, 400 mm at 1/100 sec. Thank heavens for Steady Shot!

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    He is great Bill. Rare to see them in daylight as they usually tuck themselves right up into the darkest foliage of trees during the day.

    Yes there are so many good things about the A77. Have you ever used the built in x1.4 and x2 extenders? Jpeg only regrettably but they are really effective and allowed me up to equivalent FL of 900mm with the 70-300. Then the Steady Shot is really working!

    Ok, so you get a reduced resolution but no more so than heavy cropping of the full size image with the added advantage of precise focusing on the main subject. For wildlife photography,sometimes means must! at any cost!

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    Thanks, Dave. Wasn't daylight actually - but there was certainly more light in the sky than on the owl which could be barely seen with naked eye against that light.

    I have tried the built in magnification but I just can't live with jpgs! I did do a comparison shoot - x2 in the camera jpg against a 50% crop to the Raw file on my Mac and I liked the latter better. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    I'm going to have another go at processing the owl by masking the bright areas behind him.

    Best, Bill

    Re: Share Your A77 Images Here

    Very Nice Bill..... I have a bucket list item to get a local owl (barn or barred) in flight shot unabated and without flash. I tried from Dec 11 through Mar 12 without any success. Fact is I saw only two owls flying away into the darkness at too far of a distance to do anything with.

    This bucket list item may be very tough to accomplish.
