I think it is selling for less because a CAMERA is MORE THAN a SENSOR and the A99 is much MORE camera than the A7.  The A7 is FF for people who have a need / desire to have a small body.

Just like the NEX (name may be going away) is for people who want APC in small mirror less format.

It also appeals to people who have Canon lenses etc who want FF and small for a lower prices.

He pretty much nailed it. A99 is all around better. Only reason for a7 is size. Nothing else. A99 is better in every way. Yes a77 is cheaper. I still bought an a99 instead.

You obviously disagree, and don't understand our logic. So go buy an a7. You will be limited by it at some point and will miss shots that an a99 wouldn't miss.
