The lenses i need and can afford are available in A mount and i will get all the goodies of a mirrorless with PDAF for when i need it and only in trade for a little light loss.

I think my cycle is going to be to wait for the flaships to near the end of their life and get a great deal. The A77 should last me well into the next gen's life but i will be interested to see what it is finally.

I am in this exact position as well and it sounds like we did the same. I seriously looked at the NEX/Alphas but my lenses are A-mount the a77 has some very nice features. I have older Minolta AF glass but I don't think I can afford the newer FF lenses to do the camera justice. I was also watching B&H to see if they extended the A77 deal and it appears they have...hmmm decisions, decisions!
