Why rush into an upgrade if I'm content with what I have?

Don't get the A88!!!!

You should wait for the A88MK2 it will be better..

The Holiday pricing was insane.. it was a shame to miss it.. If you sold the grip you were paying $750 or less if you had a discount for some reason coming.

When you get one you will hate yourself for waiting..

I didn't hate myself for not getting the A700 as a replacement for my KM 7D. I bought the A77 because it ticked the features I was waiting for (live view, tilting screen, AF micro-adjust, uncooked RAW, multiple cross-type AF points). I'll upgrade when Sony offers a body that I consider as a significant overall upgrade for my needs. The A77 II doesn't offer this package. If the A88 (or whatever it's called) doesn't offer it either, then I'll just skip it too. It's not like I can't get by for a few more years with with my A77 (main camera) and KM 7D (backup).
