Thanks everyone for the responses! I think I've decided to trade-in my A77 body for an A77ii.  After reading more about the RX10 IV, I think I may have issues when not being able to zoom with an AF lock, and I'd probably get frustrated having to deal with a motorized zoom instead of a zoom ring on the lens .

The A-68 is a better camera in most respects. Thus, I think you'd find the A-77II to be a significant improvement over the A-77. I wish Sony hadn't discontinued these (A-68 and A-77II). I'd still buy another A-68 if one was available.
