Of course, this is just based on my own experience.  The experience of a photo enthusiast and pixel peeper.

Sonystyle.com is still having their great sale on the A99 — a99, vertical grip, and flashgun for $2800.  You're essentially getting the A99 for 2k.  It may be worth the purchase in the end.

Indeed, I have no worries about setting the A99 auto ISO between 200 and 3200.  And, the results are very good indeed throughout that range.  Personally, I could never get those type of results with my A77.  I know others in this forum have achieved better results on their A77 than myself.  Regardless, I've many more keepers than I ever had with my A77.

You may want to wait for the a new version of the SAL70200G.  The current generation is nearly ten years old.  I purchased the newer sigma 70200OS to hold me over until the new gen eventually arrives.  I've heard that the fast Tamron 70200 is going to be amazing.  And, that will be out sooner.

Best,

Christopher
