The moral of the story. Don't buy the new models until the price has stabilised and competitors have forced a revalue.

In January or February this year, due to the sudden drop in Australian dollar, the price for α200 kit lens has increased back to AU$1249.

Thank you JimC.

I will check out the gpicsync from Google. (I have tried a few GPS syncing software for Mac, and to be honest, I don't quite like the ones I tried.)

Default "AEL not used by most" - really?!

I'm intrigued by this statement. I use my AEL button very frequently. (I've configured it to toggle on-off instead of requiring me to hold it down while I recompose.) The alternative is to meter, mentally record, re-compose, and then manually adjust the exposure. AEL makes this whole rigamorole fast and easy.

How does your work flow deal with complicated exposure requirements?

EV Compensation if I'm shooting in Av mode (and I may change metering mode for different conditions), or I'll go manual exposure and adjust for lighting, depending on what I'm shooting.
