Let's talk about the soon to be released A99 full frame SLT camera

I have lots of questions as an A77 owner.

My questions as someone who shoots a lot of video are:

Will it really do 120FPS @ 1920x1080?
Is the F/3.5 AF limit still there?
What will the crop factor be in video mode?
Will there be an option like the GH2 with a ETC mode I can shoot video in?
Is the shutter noise going to be as loud as the A850/A900?
Will it take SD and CF cards both?
How much improved will the ISO noise / low light be over the A77/A850/A900?

Dumping the A77 and going all FF lenses, will it be worth it?

Right now my biggest challenge with the A77 is shooting autofocus wide angle video. Even the 16-50 @ 16mm is roughly 30mm FF effective (29.76). Plus with that lens at 16mm there is some strange background distortions when panning in video mode. I'd rather just do 24mm @ 24mm, non-cropped.

What are you guys the most curious about? Hot shoe (standard or Minolta type)?
