Sony fanboi - take THAT Canikon, if you build it they will come, Sony is the best, woot woot woot! FOUR KAYYYY BABY - YEAH!!! WOOT!

AngularJS: Can someone confirm if it shoots 12 fps with black screen / EVF? So basically it's either 8 fps normal shooting or 12 fps pure spray and pray? Thanks!

I can follow focus on my A77m2 at 12FPS no problem the camera locks the apeture at F3.5 but on the A99m2 as seen in this video you can shoot at any apeture! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYYOVXIuxf0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48dc9NwxFr4

raj varma: So many posts from folks complaining about limited A mount lenses. I best most of them just shoot with kit lens and have never need a Ziess A mount lens. I have and enjoy my 1.4 and 2.8 lenses and my images are only limited by my imagination- not lenses.

The funny thing about most e-mount shooters is that with all of these older lens from A-mount it was wonderful to adapt them to there A7's bodies and shoot great photos with them!
Now that A-mount has the A99m2 that is clearly better than anything they have they are quick to put down all of those so called old in inferior A-mount lens! I just think most of them are butt hurt they didn't get the rumored A9 in e-mount.

Vignes: What I picked out from the comments
- Sony users saying A99 II is better than A7.
- Sony is doing this because they realised that on sensor AF is not matured enough.
- Some say, it's sad that they’ve have sold most of my A mount lenses which includes me.
- Some justifying that the A99II price tag is OK (same folks whom commented that 5DMk4 is too pricey). Can’t understand why the high price is OK when you only have minimal lens options compared to Canon/Nikons offer plus 3rd party guys like Sigma don’t make that many options for A mounts.

I’m just wondering, does Sony actually needs the A99II? OR they should have concentrated on their A mount, consistently developed they body/lens and become like Canon and Nikon, DSLR brand of choice

Tamron just released 15-30 f2.8, 35 f1.8, 45 f1.8, 85mm f1.8, new 90mm macro, and new 150-600mm G2 plus they already had 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm USM version all in A-mount! What lack of lens!

In reply to:

dbo: I mean, appreciated for those who invested a lot into A mount Zeiss and G glass.
But to be honest, it is an A7RII in an A99 body.

The good is the expected faster AF, and for sure the FM500 battery I would love to have in a slightly bigger A7 body style.

You just mad it's not an e-mount sob!

A lot of e-mount butt holes hurting about now!

virtualreality: Any macro-photographer should upgrade to mirrorless. Lots of benefits over DSLR. Easier to use, better focus, no mirror shake. Also you get access to the best (sony 90mm f/2.8) macro lens.

Everything you just mention A-mount from Sony already had in SLT Cameras and were copied by mirrorless!

Hugo808: I was working in a camera shop when these came out. I thought they were appalling rubbish and used to recommend film cameras to all customers but the screen on the back was the selling point, no matter how crap a camera was as soon as they saw the picture come up on the back it was sold. You can't beat novelty.

I recall them being rather expensive too, does anyone know how much?

Mmmmm Cibachromes Yummy!
