Thanks for all the helpful answers.

Will have to look into the flash issue... I shoot manual often (not as-often with flash though)...

You could buy the cheapest of external flash (HVL-20) for casual work. It is designed for old proprietary shoe by Minolta but A99 will come with an adapter for it (to make the old iISO hot shoe accessories compatible to the ISO hot shoe design). The HVL-20 has bounce feature, and far more useful than any built-in flash. It also folds down (which also turns it off).

It is possible that Sony will launch a newer version of it to go directly on the camera body. So, you could choose to wait, or just go for something that will cost about $100 or so.
