Yup actually the best way is to see if you can rent the cameras to try it out on a couple of shots and compare. Though I know not very practical, but in my view , still the best . So maybe you can go to those shops that can let you try,put in your own SD card , and then compare the images.
Polling for views is like asking for views on best bubble tea.
I have been hearing about the Koi Tea hype untill I tried it last Sat and I find it not to my own liking.
Hence, the self experience is crucial.
Alpha and Omega
For me, if i am buying the SLT, I will buy a33. as I don't need GPS and the additional MPs, and fps. Couple with my intention of getting a portrait friendly 50mm f1.8, the cheaper a33 will help.
yes.. i read the batt adapter is not out yet..
if u r pixel peeper like me.. KR high iso perfomance is much better than A55.. in my eyes tho..
check imaging resource
my thought is, if u r not a peeper or u r outdoor type of person taking pics in daylight.. then it doesnt matter much..
TS, if you understand chinese, here's an interesting read:
If you notice, all ISO1600 and above for Sony are all blur, no details, no sharpness and lots of noise.
When I look at my A55 and 60D at ISO1600 to ISO6400, I can dare to say the details, sharpness and noise does not lose out to the canon, in fact it retains details better.
BTW, we also do not buy camera based on review websites, not only from poll results.
P.S: if you compare the Kx to D700 using Imaging resource, you will see that Kx can actually fight against the FF very well, even up till ISO6400....which we know in real life, it's quite impossible.

Not that I don't believe you that Imagine Resource can be wrong on the A55 samples.
If you have results that show otherwise, you can certainly present the o/p you have for the benefit of everyone.
Here is the comparometer sample from DP review. If you compare it to the 60D (as you have claimed) and to a NEX5 and Kx, you'd still see the same thing.
Edit : Don't get me wrong here. If you can prove that IR is not a reasonable site to use, I would be glad to know.

Fastest autofocus live view
Best af in video
I think i better not continue, the list will be too long
Side note: my female friends absolutely LOVE my A55, cos the swivel lcd allows them to take self portraits. i donno whats the deal with girls and self portraits though, i wanted to take photos of them but they simply wobt let me, yet they love to take my a55 and take self portraits *rolls eyes*
then either camera will be good for u..
anyway check this comparison.. of coz with a pinch of salt
some misleading tho on the comparison.. A55 has 1 storage slot instead of 2, as stated.. and for high iso.. we did comment, which is better..

it really depends on what u need.
i bought my a55 and brought it along my trip to japan.
what i could say is i am very happy using it as i am able to get alot of usable shots even as a newbie to photography.
even my wife was able to use the camera without any difficultly, which is simply amazing.
she also likes to use it to take self take shots using the live view, which was very fast and convenient.
i have taken photos out from the bullet train as well, and yes no surprise there are usable shots too, with excellent focus.
and the video is really the best in its range or even more in fact, which we used to take the fireworks at disneyland.
so overall for my family usage it was a great choice, with no regrets.
but during my time at japan, i visted the camera stores there and saw them having a fantastic range of pentax k-r.
i tell u, its a full range, no kidding here.
the camera was like rainbow colored.
not only the body has several colors to choose from
even the lens has different colors as well as the rings, dials, rubber, etc etc
it was like A TOY.
but tons of females love it, including my wife who said she wouldnt mind me buying one for her.
well seeing is believing so here's a link
well end decision is all yours
BTW, sony gives good SITEX bundle for some of it's DSLR and NEX:
a33 is going for $1099. $130 more than SLR Revo price but it has a 16GB MS, 50mmf1.8 etc. These 2 will be cover the price gap and more.
