Re: Sales of the Sony A99

There are five reasons the Sony a99 is a tough sell.

  1. The a99 will not accept Nikon or Canon lenses.
  2. Not many existing FF Sony users.
  3. It is overpriced for what it offers when compared to the competition. (This could change if Sony lowers the price by about a thousand dollars to $1800.)
  4. Nikon and Canon have the full frame camera market cornered due to their momentum with existing user base and the used camera and lens market.
  5. Number four will never change.

Sony fans would be wise to just be happy that they finally have a FF camera option again for their lenses and stop fretting about how well the a99 fares in the marketplace.
