Moving From Nikon D300 To Sony A77II

After several posts on this forum and gathering some great information, I am almost 95% sure I am going to move from my Nikon system over to Sony.  Below is what I will be selling from Nikon and purchasing from Sony.  Would love to get feedback.

My needs are mostly for my kids sports- soccer, track, basketball, jiu jitsu,... so some indoors some outdoors.  I love my Sony RX100 which I use for easy everyday pics.

I am happy to be getting video which I currently don't have with the D300.  Also hope to get better high ISO performance and overall IQ with 7-8yrs newer technology.


Nikon D300

Nikon 70-300 AF-S 4.5-5.6G VR
