There will be frequent scenarios where a 5D III will hit double or more what the Sony can manage

"Double or more" is a pretty specific claim. How did you arrive at that number? Why not "triple or more" or "20% or more"?

You're right. It could easily be a 90% difference in some circumstances. Bryan Carnathan over at The Digital Picture likes to test with a horse running at the camera. Rob Galbraith does the same with sprinters. Both the 5D III and the 1D X can nail upwards of 4 in 5 shots at full burst rates in these tests. Based on reviews here and elsewhere, the A99 may well get nothing in focus, though some folks here suggest otherwise. By all means try it and report back.
