Reading your post I think that the difference in our opinion comes from the fact that I'm not going over 3200 ISO and in the 1600-3200 range there's not much difference between the 2 cameras, less than 1 stop methinks.

Above 3200 the A900 becomes unusable whereas the A99 can be pushed further with the appropriate noise reduction applied.

Personally I don't feel comfortable using the A99 at ISO 6400 and since I don't do sports photography I also don't really have to, but I understand your point.

I was going to offer up a similar explanation.  It really only is at the very high end that the difference is so pronounced.
