I also love these kinds of articles, really widening the knowledge base!
Mark Evans Kent: I never comment on anything here, but I have to now. We bought an A57 for my other half - with a view to me holding out for this A99 so we could share the system.
The EVF is great, but as we own horses the panning was pants. Sure, 12 frames a second is immense, but not so much fun when you have 500 empty pictures as the picture you see is the one previous and you can't see a current view while panning. The horse you're trying to follow has just turned left and you're still heading right for 2-3 seconds before an empty picture arrives at your eye.
Wonderful technology the SLT and I love the handling, but as an out and out photographic tool for ALL uses, this causes it to fall short somewhat. Terrific if you're not panning unpredictable subjects.
Quite fancy the RX1 though to replace my X100!
Sorry, but the last comment was great. This is why people don't post things on forums or feeds, children in my classrooms are less predictable than things like this.
"I can do it therefore you are taking rubbish".
I can take a photo of my other half jumping horse using a Canon G12, doesn't mean it's the best tool for the job.
Nothing in my comment would indicate we had never owned an A57. I gave you an opinion, you give me yours. What's wrong with that?
What would you like me to do to prove to you I owned an A57? Purchase invoice? EXIF data on photo feed? Here you go.
I actually really liked the camera, loved the handling but the panning was obviously beyond my capabilities. I'm not as adept as I should be perhaps.
In my defence, it was also mentioned on the reviews of all these SLTs. Maybe others came against similar problems.
Enjoy your A55. A57 was much nicer when I handled them both.

Where is my picture??
Mark Evans Kent: One or more pet or feral dog. Doesn't say pet dog or feral dog, read it yourself then quote.
I like wasting my time doing this!
Thanks for going to the trouble of posting this on my entry too, so I'll do the same here.
Simple question, if we're all wrong and can't understand or grasp English - how come so many incorrect entries?
If I teach 30 kids and they don't understand me or give me inaccurate work, I blame myself. I feel the same is the case here, as all of the photos which will be DQ'd show.
The person who sets the challenge needs to blame himself, not the stacks of others who all 'misinterpreted' the rules.
Mark Evans Kent: Notice you've had to complain about a few entries, either nothing better to do with your time or you're a little preoccupied. I'd buy something to help your grammar and read that in your spare time.
If I am incorrect, and he is correct - how come so many incorrect entries?
Bad grammar is no excuse for DQ.

All this discussion over a grip.
