Now I have my new A99, what to do with A900?

I have been thinking this question lately, as I have been happy with A99 so far. It offers small improvement in low ISO quality, visibly more improvement in high ISO (about 1-2 stop better), and whole bunch of modern functionality (live view, peaking, quieter shutter, GPS, video, etc.). And I can live with its EVF just fine. Logically I need to sell my A900 to partially fund the A99 expense but emotionally I am having hard time parting it: A900 is so reliable and easy to use, image quality has very unique filmic feel to it, its OVF is so good that I haven't seen any DSLR equal to it. Even it's 5fps burst rate is not too bad. But I already have another APSC camera (Canon 7D) I don't really need two FF bodies (I am not a pro). Is there anyone in similar situation? What would you do with your A900 (or 850) if you keep A99?
