Re: The Sony A99 is a great camera BUT the output of the D600 at high ISO is much better.

I don't think that all cameras will use SLT.

Naturally not. Cellphone cameras, for example, will not have SLT's.

Professional photographers don't really gain anything ( it's more the other way around ) with SLT.

You're saying that a paparazzi who can hold his camera over his head and still have fast, accurate mirror PDAF in live view gains nothing from an SLT? That unobtrusive street journalism is not easier when holding the camera at waist level and still having fast PDAF focusing? You have a very narrow view on "professional".

They need the highest IQ possible and we all know that SLT's loose some stops of light.

1. Professional photographers have managed throughout over a hundred years with much less IQ than any modern SLT is capable of.

2. IQ and light loss are unrelated except in extreme low light corner cases. Which professional photographers work in extreme low light with need for fast shutter speeds and extreme IQ, all at the same time? Not many, is my wager.

3. For that matter, most photographs taken professionally are not about IQ but about the subject they contain. it's much more important that the photo gets taken, is correctly focused and exposed and gets to the publisher in a timely fashion than that it has a shutter speed 0.5EV faster. Because that is the only difference the SLT mirror makes.
