A99 bracketing disappointed
3

I received my new A99 and sent it back within 24 hours when I realized the bracketing EV hasn't changed from the A77. It's still 5 frames max at .7 EV.  I was hoping they would increase the EV to -/+ 2EV. I ended up with the Nikon D800 because of the 9 frames it brackets at -/+ 1EV.  The Canon EOS Mark III brackets at 7 frames max at -/+ 2EV which would be ideal for me but the manual white balance on that camera is horrendously difficult. I loved my A77 even though it was slow and was hoping the A99 with it's full frame would be a tremendous leap. Unfortunately, not so. It's basically an A77 with a full frame and slightly tweaked. Has anyone else felt this way about the bracketing?
