Default Had a65...traded "up" to an a7 with lens converter....wanna trade "down" to a77II

I'm a photography buff who is also a gadget nut.

For several years, I had a Sony a65 with 4 lenses (18-50, 18-270, Macro and wide angle). Then I saw all the hoopla over the full-farme a7 and decided to give it a whirl. Given the paucity of native lenses for it, I sold my a65 and purchased a lens adapter (LA-EA4) so I can use my old lenses.

Anyway, after about a year with the a7, I'm having the following thoughts:

[1] The a7 + adapter + lens = a really big camera.

[2] The a7 + lens = still a big camera (not pocketable -- which I never expected).

[3] Probably due to my own lack of knowledge, I haven't really noticed that huge of a low-light performance improvement with the full-frame camera.

[4] The lens selection for the a7 doesn't seem to be expanding much at all.

So, I'm thinking I want to go out and get an a77 II. I know the answer is "it's entirely up to you!", but I'm wondering -- am I being stupid/short-sighted?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Not a crazy idea... depending on what you shoot... and if fidgety subjects are your thing the A77 II on paper should blow the A7 out of the water for speed- both AF and continuous shooting...
