The a99 let's you switch between "on" and "auto" for the APS-C mode. It also retains the electronic teleconverter. And you can see the actual full frame of the APS-C version in the finder or on the LCD for composition and shooting. Bonus.

I do not own the A99 yet but I am seriously thinking of getting it. I am going to use it both for stills, and video. My idea was to use limited amount of prime lenses both as FF, and APS-C size, e.g., use 24mm in FF 24Mps and as 36mm in APS-C 10Mps. This is possible, when shooting stills, but in video mode cropping is disabled. Is there any other way to use my idea for video?.. I plan to use only FF lenses.
