Anyhow, the SLT technology will not overcome the traditional mirror for same generation cameras when it comes to high ISO performance.

Many of us are getting the A99 for OTHER reasons than high ISO noise barely visible behind the D600 at an ISO setting that we rarely use!  

Another odd idea here, what reason would you get a a99 over a77? For sports it's a hard sell. Yes, tracking is better IF you have the lenses, but FPS is cut in half. For birding or long range shooting you are losing a lot of reach by going FF. Resolution is the same, 24mp. It would seem that the main advantage the a99 has is better noise performance due to more light gathered on a larger sensor. I am curious as to what reasons exactly so many people are interested in the a99 over a77?
