The a99 is not of mulch interest to me. My a850 is rarely not fast enough for my needs. I was also hoping for a sensor closer to the D800doubt does seem the a99 can produce marginally better shots than the a850, that slim difference it  would make in my landscape and portrait work is not worth the price. If the rumors are true about a 36 or 50 MP camera on the way, I would be interested to see what it had to offer for the price.

The a99 seems like a nice camera. But if you have no need for video,live view, or faster AF it's not a good of an  investment. In the meantime, I'm in the pool of folks waiting to see if gently used a900s will break the $1000 mark.
