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

Thanks KEH, great points, as usual from you. Thanks for all the information.

Not to go off topic, but it seems that the $800-$1000 premium is justified as some of you mentioned when comparing the A7/A7r to the A99. How about going from a A77K ($1400) to a A7K ($2000) - from an image quality stand point and "general use" - no professional use - is this premium worth it? Seems to me this premium is worth more than the premium you have to pay for an A99 over an A7/A7r. So considering the A77 scenario, I would like to know what you all think (Don't base this on what I am doing I would like your unbiased opinion).

Again to clarify, we are referring to the kits only - A77K (A77+SAL1650) vs A7K (A7+SEL 2870), don't consider existing lens selection. Just wanted to add that I absolutely love the sharpness of the SAL1650, its a gem of a lens.
