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

I think that SLT is a development for high speed shooting with continuous AF. But for normal still shooting we will get on sensor PDAF in short time, or even CDAF is possible (see NEX cams).  Not everyone needs a machine gun. Then you can get away the SLT mirror and shoot without light loss.

But anyway, EVF will come. And my brain is dreaming of a hybrid PD/CD autofocus system.

The problem is the a77 was supposed to be superior with tracking/C-AF, until the D7k bested it even though it has a flappy mirror. Now sony is trying a double dipped AF system that only works with 2.5 lenses...

There is such thing as trying too hard, and some things just are not worth the effort. If I wanted to spend 5 grand on camera (not really $2800 if you gotta buy new sony made lenses), I would just go another $1000 and pick up the D4 (that's a real AF system).
