I got my new a99 II a week ago and my toughts

Hi,

I got my new a99 ii a week ago and my feelings are mixed. Everything operating much faster compare the original a99. The 42mp is wow, the details are amazing on every shoot (which is sharp). The af is lock on everything instantly in single mode. The problem is the tracking. First I tried my cz 135/1.8 and was not really better then my original a99v. I tried most of the settings with not much success. The focus points in much wider area which is good but the tracking is not great. I thought the 135mm full of heavy glass so lets try the cz 24-70 mk1 but was not much better. The camera tracking great in side movement but not towards the camera. The low light af is the same, where able to lock there the original a99 was able to lock with assist lamp, but both does the job just on different way. I tried with both in same situations. The eye af is works fine on steady model but a slight movement and miss the focus.

Overall my rx10 iv tracking much better anything than the a99 ii.

The 4k one of the best what I every see from any camera. I'm not a filmmaker just the the clips looks so good.

I'm not sure this camera a keeper for me I still got 4-5 days to send it back.
