Maybe take a look at the a37. You lose GPS and a couple of other features but gain electronic first curtain shutter and focus peaking, which are quite useful. It takes a very nice picture at the end of the day. They can be bought lightly used and cheap on the second hand market. Not sure if it is a big enough upgrade for you though, but at least you are getting a newer model.

Actually the A37 may be a downgrade from the A55 because of it's low res LCD. Also the A55 LCD flips and twists while the A37 only flips and the A55 does 10fps while the A37 only 7.


Yes I know, but the jpeg engine is probably a little better and as mentioned you get focus peaking and first curtain. If it was me i would keep the a55 as a backup and go straight to a77ii.
