Re: +1 for the A57

AF is too slow for fast moving subjects.

Unless the OP plans on shooting speeding bullets that's a very misleading statement. In fact,   one of the more ridiculous statements I've seen on this forum. Have you any actual real life experience with this camera? If not, it's pretty irresponsible to suggest to the OP, who's asking for people's opinions before making a major purchase, to talk down a camera that may fit their needs perfectly just because you in love with the camera you've chosen to use. I can look at the specs on the V1 and come to the conclusion that it's probably not for me (I need better high ISO performance and prefer more control over my camera settings), but having no real life experience with it, I would never suggest to someone that it's inferior to my kit (even if it is). Not to mention that it's comparing apples to oranges...SLT to compact mirrorless.

If you actually have owned an A57, I stand corrected.
