The bird studio sounds pretty sweet for sure.
My daughter gets a kick out of watching the woodpeckers around her hammer away at the synthetic trim on the homes in my neighborhood. "Daddy, that woodpecker is silly!" Also funny is watching them go to work on the palm trees. It just looks wrong, LOL.
I suspect that the a6300 had the superior sensor, and was wondering if the A77ii would be the odd-body out in your lineup sometime because of it and your Lumix setup. I do like the way the A77ii handles, as it is my first body with a joystick. But could I use the a6000 for sports with longer, native glass? I do think so, but the combo I have is as good as I've ever had on a crop.
It doesn't look good for the a77ii to get a refresher, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see an a99 update at some point with a proper crop mode feature.
I shot that same treeflower the other day, but at F5.6 instead of wide-open. A little noisy, but it is SOOC.
