Re: A57 or A65 for lowlight wildlife?

I have the a57 and a65.

I prefer the a57 for low light wildlife shots, mainly because it will step to ISO3200 when set on auto ISO. The a65 will not advance past ISO1600 except manually. The few seconds it takes to make the change can cost a shot.

Actual results with both cameras are both fine at ISO3200. I used ISO6400 with the a57 last week on a covey of quail in the evening. Plenty of noise but I got several very nice shots that look plenty good on my computer.
