I moved to the A77 from the Sony A350. At the time I was only able to get the body like you (though at that time it was about $400 more). I already had the 35mm f/1.8 and my 18-70mm kit lens from my A350. I mainly used the 35mm until I could get the 16-50mm. It's definitely a workable primary combo. If you still have a little bit of money I saw an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM in B&H's used department for $50. It might be worth it so that you have something a little wider and a little longer until you can get some better glass. Just so you have a little bit options for focal length now and maybe to use as a back up in the future.
Good luck and happy shooting!

rather buy a minolta glass for the same amount of a bit more tbh. Its something I would keep using longer.

But the kit lens certainly isn't a bad deal.
