I still believe that AWB accuracy in Sony SLT A35 ver. 1.0 is poor implemented. I-'ll show you some samples, taken with two cameras.

The first: Panasonic LX5, firmware 2.0, AWB, combined light (5 x 40W indoor incandescent lamps + some natural light through the window):
1. LX5, AWB, No flash, a computer display is in scene

2. LX5, AWB, Forced flash, a computer display is in scene:

3. LX5, AWB, no flash, no computer display in scene:

And the same scenes, with Sony A35:
4. A35, AWB, No flash, a computer display is in scene:

5. A35, AWB, Forced flash, a computer display is in scene:

6. A35, AWB, no flash, no computer display in scene:

As you can see, the photos (3) and (6) have very different tone. Panasonic LX5 did a very good job setting a proper WB for the scene, A35 AWB is awful.
