Nothing is perfect and that includes the A99. Overall I am very favorably impressed but here are a couple of disappointments (all from DPR preview):

  • No AS mode (i.e. Auto-ISO in manual)

  • No GPS

  • Relatively small buffer (as with A77)

  • FPS could be higher for sports/wildlife

  • No built-in flash

  • Price a bit higher than I think it should be to make a dent in the competition

However my overall impression of the A99 is quite positive. I look forward to the full reviews.

It has GPS... did you miss the BIG GIANT "GPS" logo on the side of the camera?

Obviously I missed it. As I mentioned in a earlier post I was going by DPR's spec sheet which says "NONE" for GPS.

Sorry I meant to put the little smiley face to indicate I was teasing you rather than slamming you.... sorry. My apologizes.

No problem. I was just able to look at stuff in a bit more detail and the GPS is fairly prominent in the pictures
