Somebody talk me out of this logic

A99 + grip are about $3100. I need some better glass al,l my lenses except one are FF but I have no Ziess or G lens. I am also interested in the new Sigma series pending a few reviews. So far I'm happy with the A77.

So do I spend $ on lens now and wait to see if the A95 is cheaper but with fewer features or hold out for the A1 and hope it is in the $3500 range. Buying the A99 will not improve my results over the A77, at least not by a significant factor, where a few lenses will.

Of significance to me is the lack of a Superzoom for full frame, if I'm not doing sports or macros 90% of my shooting is with the 18-250. Also the 8mm fish-eye becomes a true fish-eye and I don't think I will like it as much.
