You guys just keep it going. Thank you.

About the cropping, I don't really crop down my images too much, and I do realize that FF's have a smaller focal length with the same camera, however, I will consider that, as I may need to with the A99. So thank you for bringing that to my attention.

And I know I should focus (haha) on glass. I may do that, and perhaps in the Summer or Fall I will look into the A99 again.

Yes or else there might be a better APS-C camera, the A77 replacement. A99 will sure go down in price by then too. Good glass rarely drop in price much unless a replacement is released but even then they hold thier price pretty well (Eg: 70-200 G and 70-200 G2 OR 70-400 G and 70-400 G2). While the price of G versions did drop, but not massively, compared to camera bodies which will go down in price like we recently saw with A99.
