Sonyalpharumors is reporting that the A77 weighs 680g.
There’s no saying whether that includes the battery or not (camera makers use both figures) but by way of comparison:
- The Nikon D7000 weights 690g without the battery and 780g with battery.
- The Canon 60D weighs 755g with battery and memory card.
- The Canon 7D weighs 820g without battery
That puts the A77 as no bigger and heavier – and probably a bit smaller and lighter – than its direct competitors. That suits me – there’s a certain point beyond which cameras feel too much to carry around, but I think the A77 will be OK on that front.
