I think the OP will find, that there is a LOT of defensive talk from people using the old DSLR technology. Much of it rooted in mythology rather than facts. Much of it rather protective about those persons' own gear.

SLT means better viewfinder than most entry level (penta mirror) DSLRs with a clearer, larger, more vivid picture. It also means a more informative viewfinder than any DSLR -- and it means much better video control and some performance advantages, especially more fps.

I you really want to know more - and if you want a more balanced view - you'd better look at the latest DPR reviews of SLT cameras, like this one from about a week ago only:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-alpha-slt-a57

DPR awarded the Sony A57 a gold medal, and the review specifically pointed this out:

■ Very good Raw file output up through ISO 6400
■ Dynamic range at the top of its class
■ High magnification EVF with comprehensive information display
■ Manual focus 'Peaking' option for both stills and video modes
■ 10fps shooting in full resolution mode

Are those features interesting to you?
