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?

There are TWO models. One with GPS and one without. In the USA only the model with GPS will be available.

I'm sure there will be other places GPS will be available. The a77V (V is for GPS) was available most everywhere.

But there are countries like China that ban GPS devices and certainly cannot be sold there.
