Across all brands, entry level often shares similar iq as higher models. The difference is features across models.

In this case.. Also smaller buffer making 5fps useless, non articulating LCD, smaller EVF, no GPS, no weather sealing, etc etc.

The small buffer kills it got me. I like being able to rattle off a burst of 10-20 images when my kids play sports. Impossible on the a58.
