On the first page, you state that video recording is limited to 9 minutes when SteadyShot is turned on. Where did you get that information?
I recall on the older SLTs that used the hardware SteadyShot, video recording was limited to about 9 minutes so as to not overheat the camera and its components. But the newer SLTs, the A77 and A77II included, uses an electronic form of SteadyShot that doesn’t heat up the components quicker and allows for longer run times (usually the full 29 minutes). The catch, though, is that the video being captured uses a smaller crop of the sensor, so that 35mm lens which has a FOV of 52mm on a 1.5x APS-C sensor is cropped even further (making it closer to a ~62-65mm FOV).

Pretty good, but I kinda don’t like how you don’t take a look, test and say a word about the AF.

Referring to your observation: “While the ability to both tilt and rotate the screen is very welcome, placing the bracket at the bottom does make it impossible to attain the video-friendly side-on position that some other rival models offer, a real shame considering the A77 II’s video capabilities.
I would want to know what you exactly mean by this? I am an owner of the “old” A77, and I had found that the perhaps strongest feature, especially for video shooting, is the uniquely flexible monitor. I cannot find any obstacles of using whatsoever accessories with that - and I use a lot of them. Exactly the fact that the LCD Screen does not - only - tilt to the side, but rather anywhere you need, makes it so usable.

As rivals you put the Pentax K-7. You mean K-3 don’t you?
