The Sony Alpha 55 DSLR is on its way to my door.

Sony Alpha 55 SLT

I have finally pulled the trigger on a new camera purchase. I have been eying the new mirror-less Sony’s for quite a while now. First the A55 and recently the A77 (drool).  I usually don’t buy first generation devices for obvious reasons, but I came to the realization that the Alpha 77 is out of my budget right now.
