Sounds about right but, for $700 it lacks too many features, the continuous AF in video is not worth $700 either. What I find amazing is the fact DP saw those highlights getting a bit too bright as I did, and that was the final blow for me.
I'm now enjoying my brand new A57 :)
Wheelfilm: Something that is worth mentioning, the Canon is the only one with manual Audio controls, something I would easily buy the a57 for if it did have manual audio. Something that will probably make me go with canon.
Fabulous summery, I will have an Alpha 57 in my hands tomorrow. I was looking at the D3200 and T4i, but they just can't seem to get with the program yet.
Too many MPs, and 36x zoom with no VF, what a disaster.
