The A-58 is probabbly more in the price range of what I should be spending right now(!) but this camera is going to have to last me many years (I've had the FZ20 for 8 years now), and I feel like there is a lot of things that would be missing from the 58 compared to the 65 [not necessarily straight away, but after I've gained some knowledge].

What about going the other way: buying something real cheap (second-hand a3x/a5x) for a start, with maybe a slightly better lens, and use the difference to buy a better body once you've outgrown yours and know exactly what you need, even if it's only in 18 months?
