The Sony's are good for video. The A37 and A57 can shoot very quickly, but not at full resolution and only the center part of the image (plus, there are other restrictions.) The speed for full resolution images is 5.5 and 8 fps respectively.

My criterion has always been "Can you get the lens(es) you need?" Sony's arsenal is more sparse than Canon's or Nikon's, unless you need a stabilized image, which you don't.

If I were you, I'd stick with the original plan.
