One significant point to consider: α77 II does have larger buffer than α6000, thus even if the latter may offer better fps performance you can record little less action with it.

Not available in any A-mount body other than the A99II.

Funny enough I've never really thought about the difference (didn't even know about it until 10 minutes ago!), mine's always lived with it's Display Quality set to High, might be worth starting to experimenting with it when it comes to BIF and erratic action. The slide show effect can be a pain sometimes when it comes to tracking fast subjects.

Ah! Thanks! I bet that setting works the same way on my A7III.

Just tested my A99ii and it's only doing the live view at the Lo setting. Mid, High and High+ are all slideshow.

I don't know. Here is a video from DPReview that starts by showing the 8 FPS live-view on the A99II. The live-view flickers with blackouts, while the slide show does not flicker.

Huh I'm still confused. I mean, I do mostly action photography and I've not noticed anything weird or difficult about it. I feel like someone would have to show me what they mean. I've had the a77ii for a few years now (or maybe 4...I can't even remember! lol) and shoot almost entirely in hi-continuous. Nothing ever seems weird or out of place.

Explain the live view thing. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that. I'm pretty happy with the way the a77ii handles things. I just know that when it comes time to upgrade in the future, I'm not sure how many a mount options I'll have. So I'm considering trying out a fairly comparable e mount that I can get for relatively little.

Above the lowest frame rate setting on the A77II and A6000 instead of seeing a live video stream from the sensor during bursts, you get a slide show of the last image taken.

I am pretty used to working with the slide show, but it is hard. I've been close to buying an DSLR a few times. Now I have the A7III which also does the 8 FPS live-view. The A99II is the only A-mount SLT that has it.

Consider the A6100 or A6300 over the A6000. They have live-view at 8 FPS. The A77II and A6000 only have live-view at the lowest frame rate. The A6100 has the new real-time tracking.

The issue is that on the a77ii, the 12fps is a "special mode" on the dial. You lose a lot of manual control using it and I like to have complete control over my exposure triangle. So in regular shooting, it's 8.
