Having an A77, I would recommend the A99 for lowlight wildlife--esp if you are going to crop.

Also note that the A99 has lower pixel density than the a77 so resolution will be lower when the subject is filling the same area on the sensor. This comes into play when shooting wildlife with the same long lens on both cameras, and you need to crop also from the aps-c frame.

That said, the A99 is performing very good at high ISO. I will do some side-by-side ISO 6400 tests with the A77 and A99 later today - both for pixel by pixel, and for total sensor area.
