it looks a very nice hi spec camera but are the advantages worth the extra over the D800 or you can now get the Canon 5D MKIII for same price, not to mention the D600 for £800 less.

I guess we may see the A99 come below £2000 then sales may be more bouyant?

Oh jeez, this dead horse needs to be kicked again? Are the dozens of similar threads that already discussed this to death not enough? Quick answer? Yes they are worth it, the image quality and user-friendliness is better then the 5DMkIII, the D600 is a crippled little camera that cannot keep up with the A99, and yes, sales are already buoyant

You do realise that in the UK the a99 costs more than the 5Dmk3 and a lot more than the D800?  In dollar terms, most UK retailers are asking for over $4,000.  I don't think anyone seriously expects to get an a99 at a D600 price, but it really should be competitive against the D800 price.
