I had my A99 now for 3 days, and I must say that I like it a lot. Mostly for its EVF, faster AF, lighter weight, and video capability, when compared to my A900. Especially the EVF I prefer so much more over an OVF. It's great to be able to tweak your exposure before you actually take the picture.

But also in terms of IQ the A99 is a step up. This is most apparent at high ISO. See below two comparisons of 100% crops. Shot at ISO 6400 and with the same lens.

Everyone should know by now that the A99 is better at high ISO than the A900.

How about sharpness and CA comparisons at base ISO for a change? These are rarely done in forums and also in reviews, but comparing that would be exploring new territory instead of re-iterating what is already widely known.
