A57 shoots 10fps at full resolution and 12fps at a cropped 8mp.

The Sony a65 goes up to ISO 16000 and is extendable to 25600.

Thank you for pointing that out, the FPS will be fixed up soon, but I think that the A57 has a max ISO 16,000 and has an ISO boost up to 25600.

@snapsort:disqus  The specs for the A65 and A57 are a bit wrong.A65: shoots 10fps not 12fps
A57: shoots 12fps not 10fps, max ISO is 12800
Thanks
