If you’re not ready to step up to Sony’s new full-frame A850, Sony has two more consumer-oriented cams ready to go in your bag. Both cams sport new Exmor CMOS sensors. The A500 checks in at 12.3-megapixels and the A550 moves up to 14.2. They both come with a 3-inch tilt-angle LCD, in case you need a break from the viewfinder every now and then. The A550 starts at $950 ($1050 with aWith 18-55mm lens) and the A500 checks in at $750 with an extra hundred dollars tacked on for the kit lens. More pictures and all the important specs below.
