Stay or Upgrade?

I have a Sony A58 that I have started to invest Sony (A-mount) glass in. I am happy with the camera especially for its price. I am just a bit concerned about the future of the A-mount lenses and I rather not invest in lenses that I would not be able to grow with. I haven't spent too much on lenses yet,
18-55mm 3.5-5.6 (kit) Sony
55-200mm 4-5.6 tele Sony
35mm 1.8 Sony
I've been eyeing the a77ii but interested in the mirrorless systems too. I want to be able to take good pictures as well but a camera primarily for video is fine with me. My budget is about 2000, suggestions?

I shot with film before switching to digital cameras. Canon primarily. I do like the lightness of the Sony Alphas.

There are actually some really good options here that I didn't see before so disregard. Might go for the Panasonic GH3. Still curious about what may or may not happen to the A-Mounts though. A58 has some solid features too it but the auto focus is a bit slow and does rather poor in low light even with a lens with a decent f-stop.
