Educate me: Sony new Alpha such as 77 vs Panasonic GH series
2

I am up for a new camera, not so to replace my GH1, but to provide a higher grade companion to it. Yes, there is the GH3. But what's the backstory on Sony Alpha's. I haven't been interested in them in the past, but was looking them up today and the Alpha77 looks damn interesting.  The A99 is even better, but out of my budget.

However, maybe I am Panasonic biased since been using the GH1 for a few years already, but is there a downside to Sony's latest Alpha cameras? I know the older ones had heat issues, but are there any other faults?

Thanks,
