A99 mirror part number #A1903073A
Feb 5, 2013

I was blowing some dust off of my mirror and saw a couple specs close to the sensor so I popped the mirror up and faced the camera down when to my horror out popped the mirror. It landed flat on the floor causing some small scratches (the mirrors are a lot tougher then sony claims) I called sony to see about getting a new one they said we don't offer that part for retail sale and I would need to send it in so they could fix it. The bill would be $554.76! I found a couple videos showing how to remove the A77 mirror and it works the same way on the A99. I called back 4 times and someone finally gave me the part number. you can by them here

$108 beats $554 in my book especially for something so easy to install.

just thought I should share this.

P.S. the mirror still works after a good cleaning and praying and I can't see any spots or defects in the photos but I feel like I should replace it anyway.
