Bonne chance! Keep on switching!

If you switch systems every time one of them gets a couple of edges on the others, you'll spend all your money on switching losses, instead of building a deep lens line and staying on the state of the art bodies.  I've been shooting Nikon since the D1, and every year or two Canon gets something really right and people post a gazillion "goodbye nikon" posts, and a year later Nikon passes, and the Canon forums are full of "goodbye canon" posts.

Learning how to make great images with whatever system you have would be a much better investment of time and money.  I financed a reasonably active auto racing hobby for 15 years by selling my (winning) cars to people who thought that owning the right hardware was the secret to winning.  The buyers were always baffled as to why they still couldn't catch me even though they had my multiple race winning car.

I've swept professional photographer juried competitions with images from micro 4/3 and compact cameras, against people shooting with Phase One and Hasselblad backs.  Just like with race cars, investing in increasing the skills of the control system (driver or photographer) beats investing in hardware any day.

Hope Sony gets around to building out a proper lens line for you. They seem very hypnotized by f2.8. Not so good.
