I own the A77 and do not see the need obviously to upgrade. I surely would not if I had to sacrifice GPS for Wifi. GPS is a great feature for travel. For them to forego GPS for Wifi is a mistake. For me, the A77 is more valuable than the A77II.

They just updated the Sony RX100II with the RX100III which also does not have GPS. Now, this is probably one of the best small travel point and shoots on the planet and for Sony not to add this feature is a miss!

What's up with Sony and GPS?

SLT (and mirrorless especially) already have less battery life than a traditional DSLR. So if I am on travel and need to conserve battery guess what gets turned off first. the GPS...

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.
