Must admit I more or less agree. I own A700/350 and now A550. Mostly use A550 as well. Could do with DOF but otherwise just fine image wise although location of AEL button and Control Dial a pain. AEL should be in same location as on A350. My guess is that for the still image shooter the A560 will not improve on the A550 and time will show if a 16Mp image from A580 will beat a slightly uprated A550 image at different ISO levels.To be honest I have the A-550 and the A-700 and an A-850, and I use the A-550 most of all, for my type of shots that I do, with a grip it fits my hands just right.
The metering is just about spot on AF is fast and good all round, a very usable tool, as many of you, I don’t do video, tried it don’t like it leave it to those who do.
Unless the A-580 is miles ahead of the A-550 my money will wait for the A-7xx.

As the only apparent difference is a few megapixels (unless mistaken) I'd not lose much sleep over that one.
