a99 disappointing image

The a99 is a failure on multiple counts:

  • no weather seals, see resulting risks and even water color effect in sample shot

  • way too noisy, it is loud

  • no sensor dust protection, look at the many spots in the picture

I could go on and on, and may actually do so in more new threads about the subject, but dRAW your own conclusions, please.

Here is the link (click on "open in new window" as the source I found scouring the web somehow prevents a direct embedding):
