... not quite.

There are two schools of thought- best overal market value (all users/buyers) and individual. For individual, I agree, the best value of a camera is the one that meets or exceeds all of your requirements for the best price.

OMV is different, and looking at the SLT lineup my opinion is that the A57 is the best value for its capabilities at its pricepoint. Bang for buck, in other words.

It suffers very little digression from the A77 or 65 at all, and in some ways is even better than both cameras. This is common for Canon to do the same thing with its rebel series, but hasn't quite been that way for Sony until the A580 came along. I think the A57 is the SLT equivalent for value that the A580 was for the DSLR.
