Too bad that rugged seems to translate into toddler toy look with all but the Sony which in turn can't be used for its intended purpose. What are they thinking?
I think people are missing the point here. The whole WiFi, FB integration, app thing is for people who either don't have a computer or don't know/want to use it. It's for people who like to take a photo, add effects and share it; all on the camera.And of course one can discuss the usefulness of an app even if it's optional. We discuss cameras and lenses and phones. They all are "optional" as in we don't have to buy them. Just don't be a hater.
I was waiting for the A55 successor. Why? The AF couldn't keep up with the frame rate. I'm waiting for the in-depth review on the A65 and A77 to see if that has been fully solved. Saying that, I'm very excited. And it's in time for my next big trip. :)
