    I think most of the flack the A5x0 has taken is not because it is a bad camera, it is because people want to see the a700 updated, and the A550 was not a proper semi-pro camera.

    I also don't see a ton of market there, but I could be wrong. Canon has a bit of a no-mans land between the upper Rebels and the semi-pro xxD, and the D90 has the extra control dial and a couple of other things that make it feel more like a low end D300 and less like a high-end D5000/D60/etc. It seems like a almost $1000 DSLR without DOFP, second control dial, MLU, etc is aimed at people with more money than photography skills.
