I'm not really surprised with no responses so far--asking about the HX99 was definitely a long shot!

Not such a long shot; but 6 hours might not be sufficient time for HX99 owners to visit, read, and respond.

I did get the answers that I was looking for from Jay SonyAlphaLabs on YouTube...

If you have all the answers you need, that's good. I've owned an HX90v and RX100III for more than a year. They both serve well, with different strengths and weaknesses. If any additional questions arise that I might help with, ask.

Unlike the Sony HX90, the HX99 can shoot RAW and has a control ring like the RX100 series.

See, you already missed something. The HX90v has a control ring like the RX100 series.

Thanks for your reply!  Nice to know there are other combining the RX100 series camera with an HX9x 30x zoom.  I read a comparison between the HX95 & HX99 concerning the control wheel and incorrectly assumed that it applied to the HX90 as well--good catch!

I know it was only 6 hours, but I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to see two replies. I'm hoping to pick up my HX99 tomorrow.
