Re: a580 to a99 - Crazy to upgrade? or go with an a77?

I've used the a77 on two weddings and haven't had any trouble. BUT I was able to use flash. the main thing is to get a properly exposed image when using high iso. I don't think I'd want to go above iso 1600 with either camera though. I follow these techniques --< http://neilvn.com/tangents/the-black-foamie-thing/ and http://neilvn.com/tangents/mixing-ttl-flash-with-manual-flash/ <--

I'll take some shots later today at high iso with both camera on a tripod using the same lens & settings (manual with 16-50mm f2.8)

The a77 focuses faster and is more accurate then my a580 ever was.
