I would upgrade only if you definitely have the money to spend, and none of that loaning money stuff. And only if you *definitely* know that you have outgrown the A77. The A77 is really good, but it's not perfect, but there are ways of getting the most out of it. Unless you're totally confident that you ARE getting the most out of it, while using every trick and technique in the book, I would not change cameras.

One look at 1/200s and a dark photo makes me think that you have some things to learn (no offense intended, I have no idea what you know or don't know). The impression is that you do not  know all those techniques yet. Things like M mode, choosing the best ISO for the scene, find the lens sweet spots (each lens is unique), getting exposure just right, using busting, etc.
