Get back my A77 to compliment my A7?
8 months ago

A few weeks back, I traded in a lot of gear to get my A7 with FE35 lens.

I was talking with the dealer and we were talking about the joys/tribulations of the A7, and kicked around the few things I was unable to do as well as with my A77.

He offered me my A77 back, along with all the batts, filters, my Tamron 70 - 200 f2.8 and my Tamron 60mm f2 macro, for $1000 (all with me since new, prime condition)

I can use the 60 on my A7 with adapter.. and use the Telephoto on the A77 for speedy long distance stuff that I kind of miss having on the A7. (I used it to shoot my son's lacrosse games.. 12 fps was easily doable, and the focus was awesome)

I know the new A77 is coming out in a bit, but it will initially cost a fortune, and to be honest I am very comfortable with the handling and settings on the current A77.  Plus the lenses and batts filters, etc. all for the price of the FE55 I returned.

Just thought I would solicit a couple of opinions to see if the general consensus is an ok deal, or to continue to just use the A7 and wait for the long zoom with the limitations of being connected to the A7.

Thoughts?
