what sony needs to release is an answer to d600, hell make it cheaper if possible. i believe capitalizing on existing apsc prosumers who want to go FF is where the money would be.. they would really peak my interest at least.. but this is just one man's opinion

By selling the A99 at 2100-200 USD, that would be a very strong competitor to the D600, more importantly, they do share the same sensor.

I think the a99 is overpriced by 600-700 USD, and with the arrival of the Canon 6D (same price tag as the D600), the a99 will have a hard time to compete.

Yeah, over priced if you're comparing it to the 6D. But of you're comparing it to the cameras that it was meant to be compared to, D800 and 5D III, it's not over priced. Those two cameras cost more.

Both D800 and 5DIII are superior. For the D800, it is the resolution king, and has even better noise as the a99. For the D5III, you can't compete with its auto-focus. Absolutely first class. Both cameras are also better built, and are much weather sealed.

Have you ever worked with the A99? Have you ever compared these cameras in real life working situations? Nope!

From my experience, the majority haven't. They just go by hear say. And those that spew that information haven't either. There have been a share of Nikon and Canon users that have abandoned their D800 and 5D Mark for the Sony A99. I seriously doubt that they were doing this to downgrade.
