Hi all just to add one to the sony forum division,

New to my A55 its now a week and a half old, ill keep you updated on what i think as best as i can being new to the DSLR world.

Also keep and eye on sony support as i spoke to sony yesterday and there are some firmware updates in the pipe line "by all accounts" according to the tech guy there.
always worth keeping an eye out for firmware updates ... if you spot one for it feel free to post on here ... useful for anyone who might be looking ...
im glad we have a member with one of the new gen sonys i have to say .... i shall look forward to hearing how you get on with it!
