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.

Hi Ed - I just checked Sony's (USA) site, and the A68 and A77ii models are still current models and can be bought there. I also
Sony Interchangeable Lens Cameras

If you actually select an A68 or A77ii there, and click through the links, you'll find that the only available configuration is an A77ii w/Sony 16-50 at Crutchfield for $1798. All configurations listed on the Sony site for the A68 unfortunately lead nowhere.

Sorry - I didn’t bother to check that far. Looks like Sony really is slowly killing off the A-mount.  I wonder how long the A99 will be around for.  At any rate, I can see now why people are moving away from Sony.  If only Sony could make an FE-mount camera look like a real DSLR.  Se la vie...
