I haven't shot with this camera, but I'm struck by how willing DPR is to overlook some of its faults because it's got great high ISO and from their point of view great autofocus. Has anyone shot with this thing in A mount forum? Is its autofocus really better than the Sony Alpha 99 II? At least they didn't cripple its video with an F3.5 restriction! .

It does look as though Sony is really continuing to make strides with OS PDAF. Perhaps the next A mount will be mirrorless? Or no?

What do people here think of this camera compared to the alpha 99 II? I can't imagine it's better overall. But that may just be my prejudice.

A99II has better handling and it can uses all A mount lenses without an adapter. The sensor is 42MP and it is built like a tank. I fell my A99II twice with lenses from height and all I have are just scratches.
