Feature by feature it may increase the price of the a55, sure the D7000 is a nice camera, but has no GPS, lower spec screen, lower grade AF in movie mode, lower continous speed, significantly more weight, no 3D, no panorama, no in body SSS, only 20 minute video time, if you can live with evf: lower magnification (1.1 on 55 vs. 0.94)

It adds some cool things like better metering, body sealing, timelapse, lens corrections, more video modes, magnesium body (don't care much about that anymore though, still breaks if you drop it from eye level) and perhaps a few more features I'm missing, at a 450$ higher price.

I think looking at it I would like the a7XX to have the D7000 features plus A55's, plus some unique features (single mirror slap bracket at 10-15fps, focus bracket), then it can still sell at the regular 1500$.

Actually I am forgetting a clear benefit of the d7000...its announced and will soon be available.
