I can't tell you right now where the A77 is made from as it is in my studio. It has the newest firmware 1.03.

I received my A77 last night which I had ordered through the SonyCentre website. £899 Body only
which seemed a bargain compared to the other prices I had seen. Strangely priced differ from sony centre to sony centre? Within half an hours use I was devastated to see the deathly black screen. The menu buttons wouldnt work and the camera had to be re-set using the commands that I had found on a forum.

1. Turn off A77.
2. Take out battery.
3. Insert battery again.
4. Turn a77 on
5. Press these 3 buttons Menu+Movie+Playback simultaneously
6. Turn camera off without realising buttons
7. Turn camera on, Alpha logo should appears, count to 5 and release buttons.

This worked and the camera has been fine this morning.
I simply cannot understand why I am unable to download the new firmware when it seems it is getting shipped with other new cameras.

I have firmware 1.02 and the camera has been manufactured in Thailand.
How long must I wait before my new camera works properly???? Come on SONY make available 1.03 for the public to upgrade to a working firmware.

Hi Rex. I received my A77 and 16-50 lens today (17.10.11) from Enfield Sony Centre. Body made in Thailand with firmware 1.03 installed. The lens is made in China.

Cheers

Currently no Sony Alpha or Nex cameras coming out of Thailand. There is a massive flood there which has affected Sony and Nikon camera factories and Canon photocopier factory. Here are a couple of links.

http://www.macvideo.tv/camera-technology/news/index.cfm?newsId=3312948&pagType=samechandate

I saw another article which said waters not likely to recede for a while and the factories not able to return to production for months.
a580, a300 + VG-B30, selection of lenses, Sony: DT18-70mm (kit); DT18-55mm SAM (kit); 50mm f1.4; DT18-250mm, Minolta: 28mm f2.8: 24.105mm; 70-210mm f4 (beercan); 35-105mm; Reflex 500mm, Tamron: 90mm f2.8 (Macro); 28-300mm, Metz 48 AF-1 flash.
