We know A65 has the OLED EVF and the 24 MP sensor, and GPS, but A57 should have some advantages too?

let's list them

(1) $200 cheaper
(2) Larger buffer due to the 16 MP sensor

Same size buffer but the larger file sizes from the A65 eat up buffer space faster.

(3) 12 fps 8 MP with 1.4 crop
(4) A few new software features, like "portrait" and the "clear" zoom.

I wouldn't call the clear zoom feature an advantage because all it is doing is cropping and resizing which gives no extra true resolution but makes the file sizes bigger. It's a pretty useless feature IMO.

How is the menu lag on A57?

The A65 menu lag was eliminated with firmware 1.5 although it is virtually non existent with 1.4.

IMO the better EVF of the A65 alone is worth the $200 and the 24mp is a big advantage as well as it allows a lot of cropping while retaining detail.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
