Thanks for your response, ZzzooM3. (Validation!) AF speed isn't a big factor with me. (THough I will be curious to see what the initial reviews of the yet to be released FE lenses for the Alphas.) Oddly, my reluctance to sell off my L lenses is due to the fact that I suspect that Canon (and maybe Nikon) MAY bite the bullet at some point and introduce their own FF compact. I know at first thought one would be tempted to dismiss this idea that neither would risk cannibalizing their SLR marketshare. But you just never know when it comes to technology.
