The number of APS-C semi-professional cameras remains remarkably small, with the Sony A77 II being one of the most well-rounded models in both sensor performance and features. The body is only half the equation, of course, with lens choice being an equally important consideration, maybe even more so. We’ve analyzed the results of nearly 50 lenses altogether, comprising 20 different primes and 28 zooms, including wide-angle, standard, and telephoto models.
