dennismullen: Crop sensor vs Full Frame for Wildlife/Birds

Dennis, good point.

Now you're making me think about a longer lens and A99II.

As would be expected I have concluded I will always get best results with my A99 FF and an image filling the sensor and properly exposed. Any other alternatives are down hill from there.

Generally true but when factoring in the superior tracking of the A77II's AF it's possible that in reality the A77II could have more keepers with sharper focus (and therefore more detail) then the A99 without having to get so close.
