Of course, there are other interesting optics from Canon and Nikon that, seemingly, will never come to the Sony system.

I just watched a couple of A99 videos on youtube. Oh boy.

Compared to what the A99 delivers in terms on technical innovations the Nikon bodies look like 10 years behind. Well actually they are in some way.

I think the only real downside is the EVF. Even Sony fanboys say it's quite noisy in dark scenes.

This camera really looks very tempting. Hadn't I invested so much in Nikon gear ... well then who knows ...

Curious to hear some opinions ...
