How's that for "Pro"?

The A77 has a native ISO range of 50-16,000 And the poor battery life (compared to the D3s) is aided by the vertical grip, which lets it run off two batteries, like the D3s.
Yes Sony's CZ collection of lenses is growing. Used to be fairly dismal.

50-16,00 native ISO??? Are you sure? I'm under the impression 16,000 is the max...

ISO : Auto (ISO 100-12800, selectable the lower limit and the upper limit ); Selectable ISO100 - 16000 equivalent (ISO numbers up from ISO50 can be set as expanded ISO range) (www.sony.ca)

Based in the reviews I've read and viewed (YouTube) I think the native ISO is really 100-3200. Though according to specs...if set to Auto ISO the range is 100-12,800. Reviews keep saying that after 3200 noticeable noise begins to creep in. There's also a 1-2 sec delay after you set the aperture/shutter speed. 1 sec delay to activate the VF.

Other than this the A77 sounds like an interesting consideration for any hobbyist on a limited budget. If low light shooting isn't important.

That's not just CZ lenses, that's CZ autofocus lenses which are exclusive to Sony. CZ lenses for other mounts are all manual focus.
