Re: A57 or A65 for lowlight wildlife?

A 300mm lens for wildlife is a little bit on the short side. A 500mm zoomlens would be better.

I use the A77 and have no problems with ISO800 and crop a lot for the birds. I shoot Xfine JPEG.

The 16MP sensor has less noise at pixel level, but don't know if you will get better image quality untill ISO1600. Above ISO1600 I'm sure it will perform better but those high ISO you better don't use anyway.

If you shoot only in RAW then maybe the A57 is the better choice.
