Second thoughts on A99 - SAR
Apr 23, 2012

Thanks, Andrea, for the new upgrade on the rumored A99.

One thing I don´t like reading is that the body would be slightly larger than the A77. i was hoping for a battery grip to suit both bodies, as I own the A77.

Other than that, and the fact, that it will be 24 Mpix, will be a deal breaker for some.
To me I´m having second thoughts:

  • if the 24 Mpix Sony A99 will be as good as my D3s in low light scaled down to 12 Mpix, I will buy it and sell my Nikkors and possibly the A77.

  • if the 24 Mpix Sony A99 will be too expensive, I will keep the A77 and D3s and wait for the 36 Mpix Sony next year.

or lastly: if I decide against the A99, even if it is good, I will buy the D800 and keep the D3s/A77.
