Also I bought a back up on Cyber Monday and got a $350.00 free TV. prices should drop some but it will most likely be after Christmas when the buying season is over.

Of course here Sony had to move two products that are not really moving. A99 may be a good camera but that alone cannot make it a success. I know some people have used the apple analogy but these are totally different products with totally different approaches from the buyers. If there was a single mount for all camera brands, probably that would not have been a problem for Sony. However, in the current practice, Sony has to rely a lot on upgraders from sony camp, not many, and brand switchers, not many also because the FF market is now saturated. Take the recent poll on the front page on the camera of theyear and see how how the a99 is fairing. It shows that people from other brands are really not considering it. This is troubling because this must be a site where most knowledgeable users reside. Now think about ordinary folks out there, how can they ever think of Sony when bombarded by canikon ads?
