I went for the A65 for having memories of my two sons.

I mostly take pictures of them playing, so I usually have the A65 coupled with a 18-250mm sony superzoom: you never know what they are going to be doing, so you need to be flexible, and switching lenses say in a beach is a no-no. As they do their thing mostly outdoors and with good weather, then you get good light for shooting.

I choose the A65 with its 24MP for "future proofing" my pictures as much as I could with better resolution. I usually shoot jpeg + raw, and process with After Shot pro or similar if I need more out of the jpeg (the jpegs on the A65 could do better, that's my opinion).

Can't actually compare with the A57... but the A65 looks good. If you are going to do jpeg+raw, be sure to get a fast SD card.
