The used A55 I bought last week had to go back as it was faulty so I'm now faced with a new dilemma.

I'm put off buying used again so do I try and source a new A55 (no dealers locally in the UK seem have them in stock) even though it's an older model or do I go for the new A35. I can't justify the A65 (or really afford it!) as I'd rather buy an all round lens to go with the body (eg 18-200 - BTW, anyone use the Tamron version, it seems too cheap to me to possibly be any good but reviews seem ok).

I would probably miss the articulating screen that I have on my current panny G2 but apart from that the 35 and 55 seem almost identical.

Any thoughts would be welcome to help my decision..... Thanks
