Re: Buy back my A77 to support my A7 or wait for future?

I guess I would think about whether spending a little more time with the A7 would allow you to achieve what you want with it. How many of the items you are concerned about can't be achieved with the A7 (maybe like the A77 frame rate?). FE lenses are going to be expensive, and I'd put that $1K towards another FE when it comes out and start working with the A7 more.

When it comes to electronics, I don't look back--the world is moving too quickly forward and in new directions.

I do have an A77, and I like my A99 more. My A77 now does full time on my microscope (which it excels at!). There are just no situations that I photograph where I'm going to choose the A77 over the A99.

Yes, the A7 is a different beast, but it's the start of a new generation. Don;t look back. YOu made your decision, now move forward, and enjoy that A7.

If you really love the A77, then maybe you should buy a used A99 for a  little more than your $1K.  You have a lot of great used Minolta glass that will be a LOT less expensive than FE glass. Can you imagine what an FE 85mm f/1.4 is going to cost!!
