What about the HDR feature? I use it all the time on my A55 where it stores one normal and one HDR picture, which enables me to select the best one afterwards and where i often end up selecting the HDR one, because the colors are so much better (though if any fastmoving object was in the scene i always opt for the normal picture).
Also the twilight mode is excellent for very dark scenes, again without fast moving objects, i have been using that in poorly lit places such as churches and saltmines (last holiday).
I think that it is serious flaw that one of the key selling points of this camera is left out of the review.
