Slt-A55 vs A-37


I am trying to decide between these 2 models (with their stock lenses).
The pros and cons seem very finely balanced.

Advantages of A55:

Much higher screen resolution (921K vs 230k)
larger screen (3.0 vs 2.5 inch)
fully articulated screen
GPS (not worth much to me)

Advantages of A37:

Newer sensor
Focus peaking
Higher max ISO (25600 vs 12800)
Higher resolution EVF (1.4M vs 1.1M)
digital zoom (I like it
Stronger flash (12m vs 10m)

Is focus peaking the most important difference and should it make me go for the A37?
What differences have I missed?

Thanks for your input.
