Sony proudly announced the promising Sony SLT-a77 II, which represents an APS-C fixed-mirror DSLR.
The Mark II is characterized by the same number of pixels as his three-year-old precursor, yet a new 24MP sensor offers it a broader range of possibilities. What this novelty exhibits as well is a 79-point phase detection autofocus sensor, which is indubitably the most elegant autofocus system which Sony has managed to devise so far. However, the a77 still has much more to impress photography aficionados with: it boasts a WhiteMagic RGBW LCD panel, as well as built-in Wi-Fi, and on top of all, there are processing improvements provided by the company's latest Bionz processor, which represents a building block of this top model.
Further advancement encompasses the customizable Quick Navi Pro function menu, but the most notable modification which took place is definitely the upgraded autofocus, which demonstrates the ability to shoot up to 60 images of the JPEG format at the speed of 12 frames per second.
The Sony SLT-a77 II will be available on the market since June, and the price will go from $1199 for the body only, to $1799 if the SLT-a77 II is purchased in combination with a 16-50mm f/2.8 lens.
