Hi guys. Since the announcement of the A550 and I have not been sure whether to upgrade my A300 to an A700 or an A550? Had my A300 for about 2 years now and I am loving the Live View & the Tilting screen. I am not really fussed about Live View on its own but combined with the tilting screen its great. I just can not count the times I have used them both together with great results (I mean taking great pics of my son chasing me would never be achieved using the view finder and that is just one out of many examples), and that is where I am struggling between the 2 cameras above. I had a go at the A700 and loved the quick navigation and access to all functions, the sealing of all buttons against dust and moisture, the solid but light camera body and not to forget that you can have one for about £500 now. What do you guys think?

Well, I really like the A700, but the A550 seems to suit your needs with it's live view. Wait till it's available, go visit a store sometime and see what it's like, how it measures up against the A700.
