Re: Why is the A7 selling cheaper than the A99 ?

I would like to understand what makes you think the A99 is a better camera than the A7 or A7r? The A99 has some pros and cons and so do the A7 and A7r. Its pretty much a tie between these cameras (features wise), Yeah one has GPS, one does not, one has WiFi and one does not, one has 177 AF points, one has 19 and so on...details here...no need to go over it...



Now I understand that some users would prefer one over the other and that is perfectly understandable. But from what I see, the main purpose of a camera is to take good pictures and help take pictures in challenging lighting conditions. So for the same brand, why the huge difference (percentage wise, the A99 is around 50% more expensive than the A7) despite being a year old.
