Why no 10 fps on A99?

My theory...

Any reason?

The - to some disappointing - specs in some areas might have been in response to the D600.

Sony might have foreseen early on that it would have to lower the A99 price rather soon after launch in order to be able to compete (I would be surprised if the 5dMkIII wouldn't see a discount as well).

So they will sell the first batch at a premium to eager first adopters who are willing to pay the launch price but the bulk of the cameras will then be sold at a (rather heavily?) discounted price that will still make a profit.
