I'll try again. The Sony has 1080 60p with continuous AF. It does 10 fps full res and 12 fps cropped bursting. The competition does not even come close. These are facts. They're not likes, they're not opinions, they're facts.

You're missing the point. The facts about a product and its capabilities are balanced against many other things, and in the end the deciding factor is often pure preference or opinion.

Besides, plenty of people don't need video modes, with or without continuous AF, or burst mode. Those were two selling points when my girlfriend and I bought our A57 but we've taken less than ten videos since we bought it (and viewed one or two of them since filming), and the only time I used the burst mode was to drain the battery so I could give it a couple deep charges when we first got the camera.
