Re: Would like to upgrade from A55 to ?

If the A55 had focus peaking, I'd have probably needed a new camera. But it did not, and so I went with A77ii, and having done that am happy for the larger size. (In addition to the superb camera that it is).

- Provides a bigger battery, less worry about having to keep an eye on battery usage. I got used to carrying 3 batteries for a day of picture taking, and would usually be close to using the 3rd one.

- For my best lenses (minolta 100-400, Sigma 17-70) , the larger size gives it a good balance. Those two lenses had felt oversized on A55. OTOH A55 is the right size for superzoomz.

- Love the double hinged LCD, not sure if that fits onto a small body.
