In The News From around the web

Would be nice if Sony would also give us some new A-mount lens too!
The Sony A77II is marked as discontinued at BHphoto.
Sony is careful to note that even cameras not listed above may still suffer a shortage, but as Sony Alpha Rumors states, Sony's focus appears to be on maintaining production of their newest products as they continue to work on getting everything back up to speed.
Notably absent from this most recent announcement is the second-generation A7-series cameras and Sony's latest APS-C mirrorless camera, the A6300.
Sony A77m3 is coming soon 2) Sony quites the APS-C A-mount line.
I understand you want to purchase the A77 II (ILCA-77M2).

Sony A77II gest tested at Dpreview.

No moving mirror means the a77 II can successfully use continuous AF during both 12fps bursts and video capture, a major advantage over many of its DSLR competitors.
And high ISO images have a tendency to be fairly noisy.
