I don't know about others here but... your book scene is showing some serious FF on the A99's part. ie. the front of the towel is in focus whereas the remainder of the scene(including the books) fall in the OOF region.

All in all, I'm not impressed with this as I've taken much better video with a $250 lens on the same camera.

You would be wrong. Everything was in focus from the front to the back as it measured 11" - well within the DOF range of roughly 3 feet. I checked it with focus magnify in "M" mode, it was sharp front to back. Nice try though, perhaps you can conjure up some other BS explaniation. Next time I'll fire off a still as well to demonstrate.  Start working on your next theory now.  Enjoy your camera and please post some "better video."
