Sorry can`t offer advice, but am in the same boat, (A580 Tamron 17-50, Tamron 70-300 USD,and 35-70,28-85,70-210 beercans, and Metz 44, plus Dynax(maxxum) 7 and 7D), would like A99 but don`t feel I would really use it to its full potential, so am thinking of waiting for the rumoured A 78 in about July, hoping that it will have better low light performance using some A99 technology. Plus reading reviews that keep telling me how good the A580 is, I just put bad photos down to "operator error"

I hear ya! and feel the same about some of my images. I also find that after I've looked at an image enough times, it no longer looks great to me, but my wife and others still love it.  I think I get tired of seeing the same 'old' images

I kind of feel the same way about my a580, nice camera. But, I felt that way about my 7D when I bought my a580 too, but now, I'd be willing to part with my 7D.

It's kind of like getting a new car with the plan to keep the old one for poor weather days. I've just never been able to do that once I start driving the new car - can't go back no matter how much I thought I would before my purchase
