A77II from Nikon d7100.

Hey everyone, I recently purchased my first ever Sony Camera product, rx100m3. I was so impressed that I was looking around at other Sony cameras and stumbled upon the A77II. As you can see from my gear below, I own a Nikon d7100. It takes amazing shots, but has a HORRIBLE buffer. I can't stand it. Nikon hasn't put out a pro level DX body in 5 years or so and I don't know if they ever will again. About 50-75% of my shooting is horseback riding and sports, so the buffer does matter a lot.  I'm thinking about making the big switch over but I had a few questions:

1) I see the high ISO performance isn't as good as the d7100. I do some shots inside arenas and the ISO can get to 1600-3200. Will it be very noticeable? (I PP most of my images with Nik Define, if that matters to the discussion)

2) Based on my current set of lenses, what lenses would you recommend if I did switch?

3) Have any of you switched and do you regret it? If not, do you have anything that you miss from Nikon?

4) The thing everyone tells me when I mention switching is "The A Mount is DYING!!!!!!". Do you think there is any merit to that?

I know I asked a lot of questions, so thank you in advance for reading and answering them. If there is anything else you think I should know, please don't hesitate to tell me.
