It appears that Sony is abandoning the slt design and moving to mirrorless in 2014. It might make sense to wait and see how this all plays out. The new technology may be better and not much more money. In the mean time, you have three more months to save!

Why wait?

The SLT works well.. you can take thousands of great shots..  Love my a77.. just got it for $900.  But had lenses.. and coming from A700.. really didn't look at the rest so can't help between the two cameras you are looking at.  But enjoy.. and get Gary Friedman's book.. best way to learn a Sony camera on the planet.

enjoy the camera vs waiting. because as soon as they release a new Mirrorless.. you should wait for some firmware upgrades..  (actually my strategy now after being a pre-order for the A700)

Then just when all the firmware updates optimize the camera and the camera gets a bit more affordable... there will be rumors of a better camera in a few months
