That is true but people shouldn't be deluded that overall the A57 is somehow "better" for less money. The way I see it it's 90% as good as the A65 for $200 less. I look at the A65 vs the A77 the same way with the A65 90% as good as the A77 and costs $500 less. For me among the 3 cameras the A65 is the best value. Others may feel differently.

You are doing nothing here but showing your bias of the camera you own. You have been doing this for a while now since A57 was announced.

The difference between A77 vs A65 is much larger than A65 vs A57. It could be disputable whether A65 is worth 2 hundred dollars more. Some people like the 16 MP sensor, but there is no dispute that A77 is vastly superior camera than A65.

Some of the differences between A77 vs A65 (that's not a complete list). From RW Perk

Now according to you, all these differences between A77 vs A65 are not worth $300 more, but A65 is worth $200 more than A57
