Re: a57 vs. top still performers

I think the a57 does a lot of things fairly well, but it really isn't in the hunt for top still image quality, especially once you reach 1600 ISO or more working off of the RAW file. At that point losing 30% of your light makes it pretty much impossible to be competitive due to the reflected light lost off the fixed mirror.

The difference is only 0.5 stops, and as you say, not even noticeable before ISO 3200. There are some pluses too, even for still photography, like tracking ability during fast burst mode, shorter shutter delay due to electronic first curtain, no shutter and mirror blur, resulting in sharper photos, etc.
