Re: A35 or A55

I have found the articulating screen on my A55 extremely useful - far more than I would have expected. Would not consider another camera without.

The GPS is good once in a while.

Batteries from the far east are cheap, and all the ones I have are reliable. I carry three, but have never needed more than two for a day except when one of them was not fully charged (forgot! DUH!!!)

The Tamron 18-270mm I have can be a little soft at longer lengths, but if you can throw the background out of focus, either through aperture or post processing, it makes the subject look sharp. I have a few where this worked well enough to really make the lens look good - we are very happy with ours.
