I'm in ballet photography and ballet performance photographing was almost impossible back then.

Sure! My point is: You have to do what is possible within the limitations of the camera you are using. Creativity makes you push the limits. With new tehnology you might exceed the limits. But until then you are stuck with what you have or what you can afford or are willing to spend money on.

So if I buy a 4/3 camera (small and highly portable), I have to work within it's limits, and so also if I am buying the A99 (large, bulky and expensive system). When I have a camera, it doesn't matter what I could do with other cameras. The choise of gear will always be a compromise, considering much more than high ISO performance.
