Re: Stuck in 2 minds - just wanted to get my thoughts out...

A two camera kit is the best thing you can have, especialy when you go for the combination of an Alpha camera and a Nex camera. You can use the Alpha lenses adapted on the Nex and still use the automatic exposure (or use Apperture from the camera) Some lenses will AF bbit they will do it slowly... (look at this picture, taken with the Sony adapter and the Sony 70-400mm lens at 400mm hand held (but supported) It is sharp (while Auto Focused)

But for birds in flight you better switch to a DSLR type of camera.I think the A55 is a great camera, it focus fast and accurate, it is fast when taking bursts with AF, it is not to expensive... The A77 is rumored to cost about $ 1000,--So you can save some $$ and buy a nice extra lens... Super zooms have alwys drawbacks, like slow, optical not the best or very expensive (like the 70-400mm)

This picture is take with the same 70-400 mm but with the A700
