Here is the A99 with the old lens that momentarily passed as new at DPRview:

And at IR:

Very dishonest.

LOL! I found why Sony may have handed the new A99s with the old 28-75, this from Kilpatrick about the PD AF:

It will only work with the 24-70mm f/2.8 CZ, the 28-75mm f/2.8 SAM, the 50mm f/1.4 current design, the 70-200mm f/2.8 SSM, the new 300mm f/2.8 G SSM II, and the new 500mm f/4 G SSM.

Obviously they could not give testers and reviewers a camera with a lens that could not focus properly, and all lenses that would work but two are two big and of those that work there is only a zoom...

How lame Sony!

I guess they were handed the A99 with an old Sony 28-75 because I have seen the combo today somewhere, maybe in DPReview's video.

The Sony A99 news headline says there's a new 28-75mm f2.8 SAM lens, but I only saw the 300 f2.8 and 50 1.4 zeiss lens described in the press release.

Does anybody know the pricing and availability of the new 28-75mm lens? the Zeiss 24-70 is too expensive for me so I'm considering that. Thanks!
