Better than 2012 Popphoto Camera of the Year Canon Mark III and D800!
Finally, thanks DP for this review.
And about the video...
"The image quality of the A99's video output is very good, though as with any DSLR you'll need to keep an eye out for subjects that induce aliasing artifacts like moiré patterning. Colors are rendered in a natural-looking manner with auto exposure and white balance settings producing pleasing output overall. High ISO low-light video looks very good as well. Noise and artifacts are visible upon close inspection but the results are still quite usable for documentary style projects. Audio from the built-in stereo mics is clear and crisp, though the mics are fairly sensitive to wind noise and sounds emanating from behind the camera. Video enthusiasts will, of course take advantage of the camera's external mic inputs, for more professional audio results."
