Question about Crop Mode on a99

I ordered an a99 and while waiting on it, I have been reading up on a few things. I noticed where it has a crop mode that you can shoot pictures or videos in and I was curious if that will change the range on lenses like it does my a77. For example, my 70-200mm Sony G lens is actually closer to 300mm on my a77, if I am not mistaken. So if that's true, will my 70-400mm Sony G lens be closer to 600mm max on my a99 in crop mode? How well would it shoot like this? Getting rid of the 20x zoom (590mm) on my video camera was tough when switching to all DLSRs, but if I can get up to 600mm on my a99 in crop mode, or with my a77, using my 70-400mm Sony lens, then I might be okay after all.
