Re: A99 First Impressions

After using the A77 a lot I immediately felt at home with the A99. Ergonomics, buttons, menues ... great. Also the silent button is very nice. And now when most of my lenses are AF-D compatible I am looking forward to the spring and BIF-time ... still winter up here north.

Now I just want to add the new Zeiss 50 mm lens, then I have a superb travelling kit with 24, 50 and 85 mm primes! This feels a lot like the good old days when I didn't have zoom lenses, but I really appreciate the modern A99 over mechanical cameras for 135 grainy and expensive film, like my poorly built Leica R3 cameras - within a few years I paid more for repair than for the camera bodies ...
