Looks like all this fancy stuff has been "stuffed" into an A58 body complete with 2.7 inch rear screen. Imagine that - 2.7 inch rear screen. Might be competitive at US$ 600 if they keep the price below £500 here in UK. Not for me though. Just bought an A6000 body with £50 back from Sony. Barry might approve of the specs if it has a metal plate for lens mounting. I have no doubt the image quality will be v. acceptable combined with fast focusing and high ISO.
Still can't get over Sony using that 2.7 rear screen from A58. Why not 3"? Baffling. Just find 2.7" too small on my A58.
