Sony A99 looks to be a really good investment!

Hi Steve

Thanks very much for your detailed reply and research link, they are very thorough and useful. From my work with the Sony A900, I am quite impressed with its low light performance, and I can see that the A99 probably produces even better quality low light shots than the A900, so I would have no hesitation in upgrading to the A99, based on what I have seen on this forum so far.

I also like several of the newer features of the A55, such as sweep panorama. I would be interested to see, sometime, how A99 owners find this panorama function, and whether it produces, perhaps, better panorama results than you can get from the A55 or A77.

I have been very tempted to buy the A77 because I enjoy bird photography, for example, and the reach of the A77 is excellent, as demonstrated here:


I think it might be an idea to have both the A77 and the A99 in the car, and to use the A77 when you want the best reach possible for wildlife photography. The A99 would then be a good choice for the high ISO work and general landscape photography.

Thanks for your comments about flash photography, these are very helpful.
