Pulled The Trigger Tonight On A 77 Anything I Should Know ?

I have Decided to add a Full Size to Compliment my NEX 6 and NEX 7 , I have been happy with these little Gems but shoot mostly A Mount lenses and have no Stabilization on the NEX Bodies just in the Rather Anemic (my application) selection of E Mount , I like to hand hold my Minolta Reflex and think the 77 and that lens would be a good Match, I Primarily use Telephotos and shoot wildlife and Coastal Feathers here in the Tampabay Area.

I took Advantage of the Free Sony Battery Grip and 300 dollars off the Body (Adorama)

How is the Battery life on just one Battery ?

Is the Body well Sealed for Moisture ?

Is the OSS pretty effective ?

How well does the Sony Battery Grip Compliment the 77 or is it Cumbersome ?

I will need another Battery and recommended third party good ones ?

I have no Prior experience other than what I have read and not followed the Alpha Forum so my  Knowledge on this one is limited , So any Pointers or Quirks would be appreciated.
