Re: a580 to a99 - Crazy to upgrade? or go with an a77?

I mirror what's been said. I'm a wedding photographer and I started with A550 and A200 backup, then 2x A550, and then changed to an A77 with an A550 backup. The A77 handles and performs very well and the EVF is amazing and much better than the OVF (even though I was very sceptical at first), but overall picture quality is worse, especially in low light - the A550 wins on image quality.

I now have an A99 with my A77 as backup and I really should have done this ages ago. The A99 is awesome in every aspect. I can't go back to A550 now, mainly due to handling and performance of SLT, and I don't want to use my A77 if I can avoid it - the A99 is really that good and that much better.
