A55 vs A65

Dear all

I'm in the market for a new SLR and was wondering what people think about A55 vs. A65.

I would categorize myself as an opportunistic photographer, weight and size of my gear is important (read multi-day hikes). I take lots of landscape photos but also plants, wildlife and some macros. Travel photography focused on nature really.

I narrowed it down to Sony's A55 but now I start considering the A65. Without decent reviews available yet I can't judge if the A65 has fixed the shortcomings of the A55 (overheating with video and autofocus with 6 and 10fps). What I think I do know is that the A65 has a superior viewfinder and a massive 24Mpixel (over 16Mpixel) - and costs 1200$ instead of 600$ (in Australia). I'm trying to decide if the A65 is worth twice the money...

Thanks for your thoughts.
