Your best price, weight, quality and useability is to go for the lightweight A58. With a decent lens, that camera almost rivals the A99 for pixel peepers. It has better iso qualities than the A900 with its newer sensor even with SLT. The viewfinder with OLED is great and the price can't be beat $500 new steet. Your existing lenses get a 50% equivalent focal boost and with its great iso response you can use lighter lenses like the excellent beercan which will give you equivalent to 300mm.
