No vibrations since mirror does not move: FALSE a sturdy camera body does not suffer from that especially Nikon (try even D60,D3000 over any Sony and feel the difference)
If you want to try capturing, say, a bird at very long focal lengths at 1/20 without mirror lock-up, be my guest.
Faster fps : True up to 12 but how many times and who will need that? OK not bad to have
Professional sports photographers (e.g. Sport Illustrated's Robert Beck) do use fast cameras - 1D Mark IV, D3S, you name it. I'm perfectly satisfied with the 'low' (3 fps) or 'high' (8 fps) setting, though.
Better autofocus especially during video: True worth only if you take a lot of videos
Incorrect. SLT technology does not need to 'predict' where the target will be because it's following it all the time
Mirror is a nightmare to clean very sensitive and dirt show on pictures on your SLT
Incorrect, as Popo has explained. If necessary, Sony can replace it.
Electronic viewfinders gives 100% view. Not so usefull as you might think plus not accurate and especially colors.Its a nightmare to use during manual focus on thin and small subjects like a small brunch etc. I dont believe that an Oled one will be so good as Sony claims especially during low light
It is accurate - it's 100 %, and not 98 % or 99 %, unlike some professional models of other manufacturers. Regarding the colours, it obviously is influenced by the white balance and the creative style setting - the portrait setting will differ from the natural or landscape setting. There's no tearing or anything whatsoever. Just like on the NEX series, there's peaking, which works excellently. The viewfinder's image (or the LCD's, for that matter) can be enlarged significantly (up to 11.7x). And it's not as noisy as you'd expect in low-light. There are a number of reasons why the rest of the world calls it the world's very best EVF.
SLT underexpose by 1/3 of a stop
Incorrect. Their 1200 zones metering system offers excellent results and does not underexpose at all. Just ask all the reviewers who tested the camera.
