I wouldn't blame the guy for trolling, I don't personally own an a99, but I do have a a77. Indeed the SD card door opens too easy for my taste. Regarding a99, I've met the same complaints on a Russian forum (http://www.forum.sony-club.ru/) - biggest alpha users community in Russian Federation.

That's interesting. So far I haven;t had any issues with the door. What I'd decided to do is test the door out to see if it opens easy. The door doesn't take much effort to open up, but not to the degree where it's doing what the original poster is describing. And that's not saying that what he is describing isn't true. One person described an issue below that I've noticed too. The front dial wheel is sensitive. I barely hit my finger on it more than once and my settings were changed. Not an issue, but for some this might be a pain.
