Connect a Sony flash via the PCSync port and show the bar and I will beleive. Otherwise, you've proved nothing other than that you equipment has a delay. - TF

OK TF, here you go. I don't have a Sony flash, but rather a Sony compatible Sigma (with the Minolta hotshoe). It is the same one that I originally used to show that 1/250 works fine on-camera when triggered by the Sony-specific pins in the hotshoe. It does not have a sync port, but I have connected a hotshoe adapter that provides a sync port, and hooked it to the A99 that way.

Do you believe now?
