Re: A99 price is cheaper than the A900.

The price is lower than the competition based on the cameras that it's actually competing against on a specs bases. D800 and 6D. If that is the case, Canon and Nikon should drop the price of the 6D and D800.

If Sony wants to compete in the FF market, they have to lower the price.

The same goes for the 500/F4 which costs 13000€, the Canon 10000€ and the Nikon 7000€. Even if the Sony is sharper or has better AF, Sony is the newcomer and to introduce new customers they have to lower the price.

If the buffer from the A99 is really 13 or even 17 frames, that is unacceptable at this price point. I would say 2200€ is more reasonabe.
