Lets look at the CIPA ratings:
A6000: 360 (same as NEX 6)
A6400: 410
A6600: 810
A7r2: 290
A7r3: 650

Comparing your cameras:
A58: 690
A77: 470

Figures from Dpreview. With the A6000 I never felt the battery was to small, with the A7r2 I felt it was borderline. With A7r2 I always brought a spare battery, with the A6000 I usually brought a spare and with then A6400 I seldom bring a spare, just when it is below half. YMMV.

The battery life with the APS-C cameras is noticeably better then with the A7 cameras with the same batteries. But be aware, the way you use your camera makes a huge difference. I use manually switching between the EVF and screen (which is a pain with the A6000). It improves battery life compared to the automatic switching because when I remove the camera from my eye, the EVF shuts off, with automatic switching the screen turns on and still draws power. Like always, YMMV.

BTW, the FW battery is nice and small, easy to bring a spare. Not bringing one is of course easier.
