Music Hands: Very sad that they did not retain the compact size of the A55 in the 57. It was quite compact, wonderful value for the size and price. So for the "replacement" Sony makes it bigger, takes away GPS, no sensor improvement, and adds some Bionz chip features?I won't be "upgrading" my A55 anytime soon. I can only hope that the future leads to a more compact SLT design that, again, sets the trend.
appreciate the info. Improved heat transfer wouldn't affect the AA filter capabilities, right? i.e., that could be upgraded in the a55 firmware, no? Just asking.
Is the AA filter upgradable so that I could hope for a firmware upgrade to improve the a55?
I noticed that too. The images are MUCH crisper from the 57 than from the 55. How is that possible? Does the 57 in fact have a different sensor?
