A55 - info / thoughts?

Hi all,

Long time lurker here after some advice/thoughts..

I have an A100 currently thats taken on some accident damage lately but like the look and sound of the new A55's. I travel alot and enjoy getting about in new places with the camera.

I'm looking at upgrading but have a few questions:

1) Has anyone gone from an A100 to an A55? Is there a large noticeable difference between picture quality?

2) Will my Sony DT 18-250mm lens work OK on an A55? (great do it all walkabout lens)

3) How are people finding the battery life? (seems a little better than the A33 - anyone getting more than one day?)

4) How is the EVF at night/low light?

I like the positives of the new SLT cameras - smaller and lighter for travel, video for quick clips, GPS for tagging travel shot location, panoramic shots, live view, fast focus, the ability to see on the LCD/EVF the effect of changing WB settings etc etc

I've tried one instore and they seem quite nice. Big bonus is I can (hopefully) keep my lens

Any thoughts etc most welcome
