Seems like the older SLT-A35 was substantially better. While the screen didn't rotate, it was 921,000 pixels versus the nearly unusable 230,000 pixels of the SLT-A37. Sony giveth and Sony taketh away, but this time they seem to have stuck it to the users big-time with that small, crappy screen.

Sucks that DXOMark just skipped this camera all together, because now it is ranked as the worst entry level camera at the moment. It has a lot of nice features for an entry level camera.
