Other than IQ and EVF, any complaints about a77?

So, I'm pretty serious about getting an a77 (if only because it's clearly the future of Sony and I have too many lenses to switch). But I was wondering what the complaints may be, OTHER THAN image quality and the electronic viewfinder. I'm not saying that these two factors don't matter -- of course they do! -- but I've read all about them can live with them.

Setting aside IQ and EVF, it looks like an AMAZING camera to me! Am I missing something?

And let me be clear: when I say it's an amazing camera, I'm not talking about the extra bells and whistles, like 3D sweep panorama. Such features may be nice, but I'll probably never use them. I mean important stuff, like +|-5 exposure compensation, setting AUTO ISO limits, direct manual focus, lens micro-adjustment, etc. It seems to be a complete package.

I've looked around on these boards a bit, but everyone is focused on high ISO image quality. If anyone has (or knows of) other complaints ... what are they?
