Can't wait to see the specs for low-light performance.

That would be two *types* of memory card supported, but the actual slot is only one, i.e. you cannot have two cards at the same time in the camera, for backup purposes and whatnot.

I own now A55V and I really need the GPS :))

So... A57 can't completely replace A55...

 no, if you want GPS you need the A65/77  (but really, why would you?)

All Sony SLT use continues phase detection, not contrast detection.
