I have chosen the A99 for the one I want to use the most. What convinced me personally is that I like Zeiss lenses very much and Zeiss for Nikon is MF, and Sony is the only system where Zeiss is AF and those particular lenses are all excellent. so if you can get the 24-70, 85 and 135 Zeiss you would be totally happy with the Sony, Also the Sony 70-400G is a great telezoom lens and I don't think that Nikon even with all their choices has an equivalent lens...so with those four lens, and the A99 you should be pretty pretty happy.

the 24-70mm certainly seems to be the best f2.8 zoom, apart from perhaps the new Canon

the Sony 35mm f1.4 is disappointing though, but the good news is that the Sigma 35mm f1.4 will be available soon

together with the sony 85mm these three lenses might be a good combo
