For those who have an a99, does the AF/MF button feel somewhat mushy rather than having a distinct tactile feel to it when depressed? The same AF/MF button on the a99 vertical grip has a definite tactile feel to it, where your thumb can actually feel a "click" which the AF/MF button on the a99 body seems to lack. The AF/MF button on both my a77 and a77ii definitely have the same tactile feel (as does the button on their vertical grips), so I'm wondering whether my a99 button needs to go in...

If I'm shooting astro stuff, would it behoove me to remove my A99's mirror before I go out? I use the Rokinon 14mm, so I'm manual focusing anyway. Will that give me lower noise images, or am I better off using Noise Ninja or that new program, Noiseless?

Does Sigma lenses have the same problem on the A99 as they do on the A77, A33 et.al?  Specifically I was thinking about a Sigma 24-70 F2.8 IF EX DG HSM.  Thanks, Ray

I currently own the cz 24-70 and love the shallow depth of field at 2.8 but my recent purchase of the a77ii mk2 has made me question the need to keep my a99... the dynamic range of the a77ii is pretty close the af is outstanding so my only only reason I keep the a99 is the shallow depth of field in low light. The art lens on the sigma 18-35 f1.8 will give me the reach I need for most of my shots Has anyone took a step back into these new art lens and compared the results... The a99 is a way...

I am very strongly considering purchasing a 35mm/1.4 lens for A-Mount in the very near future (possibly within a week).  The uses will be Wedding Photography and Videography (not simultaneous).  I need the 1.4 Aperture for Video low light and I think the 35mm is a pretty versatile focal length for all day usage in both photography and videography. My other lenses are the Sony Zeiss 24-70/F2.8 and the Sony Zeiss 135/F1.8.  I am thinking the 24-70/F2.8 on one body all day  and then the 35mm/1.4...

So I feel foolish not knowing this and I haven't been able to find an answer online or in this A99 book, but the camera is constantly changing fstop when its hanging on my side and I can't figure out how to lock all settings. Example being indoors shooting at f 2.8 and pick the camera up from my side and it's now f22...never had the issue with any other camera so I'm ignorant to possible solutions. --www.joshsouzaphotos.com

I recently acquired 4 lenses and needed to calibrate them, I have been using the Lens Align and FocusTune but for what ever reason this time FocusTune told me none of the test images were Back Focused in the range of -20 to +20. The FocusTune process can be tedious with around 78 shots for each Lens Body combination (doubled for zooms) so I decided to try the Dot Tune process before spending all day just calibrating. While using DotTune I had the camera on DMF so Focus Peaking would appear...

My A99 file numbers got screwed up yesterday, probably because I stuck a A77 card in it. I have tried the trick of formatting the card, taking a picture, renaming to the proper number (not 00001). I also tried 00001 and it did not work either. I then set the file number to reset, formatted the card, took 1 picture, and put it back to series, took another picture making sure the next number was 00002, formatted again and lastly took a few more pictures to be sure the numbering was working. As...

I just purchased 2 of these cards for my A99. Does anyone own this card? how fast is it? reliable? is it ok, good, great, or amazing? please give me your thoughts, as it seems to be discontinued on a lot of sites.
