2013 does not make sense, give it six months.

Sony may announce the a77 in August or September, but few retailers will have any before April, 2013. You will have to pay premium price until late 2013. The lens selection will be missing some key needs until 2014 or 2015.

Sony's product cycle is similar to watching molasses flow uphill in January. Slow, slow, sloooooow.

A lot faster than Canon or Nikon. Remember the factory shutdowns due to flooding set things back a few months. A65s are readily available so A77s should be by now. This is in the States. Other areas may be different.
