On the new OLED EVF: The A77, A65, NEX-7, and NEX-5N EVF, all use a new OLED electronic viewfinder developed by Sony, with a 2.359 million DOT resolution, with the new OLED technology, compared to traditional LCD EVFs, the OLED does not show chromatic aberations at the pixel level, as the pixel level does not have to show RGB at each level, while traditional EVF do.

how does the new sensor compare to older 16MP sensor seen on A580 and A55? also it would be very interesting to if any of current lenses on market cope with the increased pixel count.

I am curious, were the photos shot as JPG? NR on? THe reason I ask is the 400mm shots.
The one of red flower looks spectacular with sharpening. The one near the water is pretty mushy. THis isnt the camera's fault. ITs the steady shot from sony. When the lens is at 400mm slow shutter speed and hoping steady shot will do the job ( it nees about 1/800th in that situation cameras without steady shot would need twice that! (yes! I am a Pixelpeeper)
Again Really spectatcular!!

OT, but I'd really like to know, where the shots have been made. I guess it is somewhere in Greece?

My problem with my A850 is noise in dark areas, and no object tracking.
I do find in flight kingfishers quite tricky on a river surrounded by tall trees.
Could the A77 be my answer? I think it is.The pictures above and the ones taken from the speed boat, seem to prove that. In the next couple of days I should find out.
