This looks like great technology. The only problem I see with the A99, and it seems significant to me, is that all the focus points are clustered in the middle of the screen. Is this common for full-frame cameras? I'm using an A700 and considering purchasing the A99, but it seems like a big step backwards to not be able to focus on anything outside the center square.

I was noticing this too JR.

The a850 has a more disbursed pattern so no, it's not common on the a850, a900.

I thought maybe their graphics were a little distorted but, who knows.
