Re: DK on the overpriced a99

Yea but why havent they responded with a price cut then? In a world where the d600 using the same sensor and apsc AF module can take higher iQ pictures ( not sure about the a99 but if its the a77 focus module then the d600 will out perform it as my d7000 handily smacks ny a77 around ) for half price and the d800 has class leading mp and IQ for the same price awarded camera of the year ( we all know it is lets be honest with ourselves), its just priced to high and everyone except the early adopters realizes it and they are just in denial as a self defense mechanism. The d600 undercut it will its price using the same sensor and cutting cost by reusing the apsc focus module and the d800 has higher resolution, better AF, highest in class sensor performance, and a bery useful apsc shooting mode that rivals their best apsc camera making it the perfect bridge. The a99 is over priced a 36mp sensor could have at oeasr created an argument to this fact. The real question is why hasnt sony conceded this just more evidence they are out of touch
