No it wasn't. It hadn't even been released in 2010. The camera of the year in 2010 was the A55.

Not according to Pop Photo page 110 of the January 2013 edition. Unless it is a misprint. I also thought it was the A55!

Kinda sad that they can't keep their own history straight:

http://www.popphoto.com/gear/2010/12/2010-camera-year-sony-a55

Well, there we go.  By some other's standards, this error would invalidate everything that Pop Photo has to say about anything just because of this little misprint, so I say we throw it out and the Camera of the Year remains unknown for 2012.

(i.e. THIS LINK HERE, which states that the A99 has a built in flash invalidates everything else it has to say about the camera and immediately they are not a reputable source.)
