a500 or a550 vs a57
Guys - thinking about making the upgrade from the a500 to the a57 - wondering if any experienced a500/550 guys had done the same and could make any comments?
I like my a500, but wonder if the a57 would be a decent upgrade. The movie function is of mild benefit to me, and the extra FPS as I shoot RAW+JPG and hit the buffer after 3 shots on the a500.
My concern is high ISO performance - yes, in the specs the a57 can go much higher, but I regularly need to use 800-1600 on my a500, which is does handle very well. I remember reading the early SLTs weren't as good as the a500/550/580 on ISO performance, is this still the case?
Anyhow, all feedback/advice appreciated!!!
