Thank you for this interesting list. But I have to admit that most of them don't interest me... And I'm not sure that the sensor improvements worth the extra 1500€ (that's the cost of a d600 body!)

So maybe an A77 + D600 could be an interesting combo instead of an A99...

Why is needed to:

  • persist with the wrong idea of the  A77 since we know about flash issue and because it's totally obsolete with his limitations since the A99 appear on the market. Maybe you don't know about the fact that the A77 is unable to switch OFF the noise reduction and many things like this. All that don't make the A77 an option, except if 12 fps is required). Period. 
  • have two lens mount with two different battery pack (since we know the A77 and A99 is the same). With your combo, what if one of your D-SLR/T need to go to customer service (or you await for the generation next...)
  • buy a combo (since we know the A99 itself is a better replacement of both (A77+A99))
  • choose the D600 over the A99, since we know Hasselblad is strarting up to announce his own A-mount FF soon (later this year what can show the trend...)
  • to consider about the WB made in Nikon, since we know is not the best one (according to the minoltian heritage and the collaboration with Hassy) and so on...

Oh my... Ok, assume your choice, but don't come to cry later... as many....
