Sony SLT-A65 Preview
While not quite as fast as the A77, the A65 still boasts 10fps still image capture at full 24-megapixel resolution; which is nothing to shake a stick at. Other important features include a 3.0-inch rotating LCD with 921k dots (same as the A55), built-in GPS, SteadyShot built-in to the body, etc.
If you're in love the specs of the A77, but can't quite swing the extra coin, the A65 looks to be a promising alternative. We'll update this page once we get a SLT-A65 in for testing.
