I don't see a need to upgrade from A700...yet

You are in the boat with a lot of people

A700 such a good camera that many want a big jump forward not an incremental improvement before they buy.

While many will not agree I will be perfectly happy at this point if the A77 or Nex 7 arrives before the end of the year - assuming it gives us a big leap forward.

I can't afford to buy a new camera every 18 months for incremental improvements ala Canon. Nikon seems half way in between here with a D300s that basically offers mainly video from D300 but a bunch of newer cameras below this level with incremental improvements.

It is surprising just how long Sony is taking on the A700/77 level upgrade though.
