I'm thinking of getting the A57. It might be their last 16MP camera. I don't need more than that.

While the earlier A3X/A5X models had an SVGA (800x600) LCD viewfinder and this new A58 has an OLED viewfinder, it's still the same resolution as the earlier version, and not up to the XGA (1024x768) of the A77/A65.

I could go either way for most things in the product line, but I'd have to go with the XGA viewfinder.

I would have thought you would have acquired one of those Swiss cameras by now...
