You will notice much improved high ISO performance (up to 3200, 1600 is totally worry-free), and big bright OVF. You might find A900 lack of live view, video a welcome relief if you are shooting still only. Most importantly you will notice wider view angle. Suddenly 24mm is VERY wide, 28mm is wide enough in everyday shooting, even 35mm is quite workable.

I can't agree on the "much improved ISO performance". I've recently got an a850, other than the bigger pixel size on the A850, I don't see any improvement, infact I was used to be able to recover shadows on high ISO images on my A77, A850 is worse in this aspect showing more noise in those areas.
