Sony a-mount users who also shoot Fuji X..

I'd be very interested in hearing from Sony a-mount users (a77 hopefully) who also use Fuji, particularly the X-T1, which I'm most interested in.

I'm still on the fence (see my prior posts) about upgrading to a new camera / system.

I currently shoot with a Sony a580, but want an EVF camera.

Sony has a great price now on the a77, with a grip, for $800. I can use my current lenses, so it would be a pretty inexpensive move. But, I'm not sure I'd gain much in image quality. It's a better camera, but not sure it's worth the upgrade.

I'm only with Sony because they bought Minolta years ago and I had a Minolta system previously - 7D from 2004.

What has been your experience using both systems - Fuji and Sony?

Ergonomic differences, IQ, and general functionality - pros / cons?

I'm not interested in Sony e-mount, so I've narrowed my apsc options to either the a77 or the X-T1. Or, waiting for the mythical rumored a77ii - if that ever arrives.

I may rent an X-T1 later this month, but really would rather not spend the cash on a rental.

However, I do realize that that might be the only way to get the information that I need to make a good decision.

thanks again.
