Correction. The Sony 70-200 doesn't have yet AFAIK but it might have as soon as Sony releases a FW update.'

The Sony 70-200 has been in the marked for a long time, long before the release of A99. Why should Sony wait for the next FW to implement the AF-D for it?

I'm not sure, but 70-200 seams to need a hardware change to support AF-D, which will be implemented in rumored upcoming 70-200 II.
