I understand SLT cameras as having a mirror which let the light to viewfinder as well as sensor at the same time. But If a99 II utilise this technology why does it has a electronic viewfinder instead of optical view finder?  If they are to put EVF why they have implemented SLT technology which cut few light. For focus advantage?

I'd like to know which of the two cameras you'd like to have if you could only have one, the A99ii or the A9? I go to a lot of baseball games and sit close enough to where my Sony 70-200 f2/8 gets good shots with my current camera the A77ii. I also take a tone of landscaping shots in the D.C. area (can you see my problem)? Smoking 20 fps with the A9 or 42 mp quality with the A99ii

Has Sigma totally stopped supporting Sony, either A-Mount or E-Mount? Or even Pentax for that matter. Considering Sony overtook Nikon in FF sales it seems an odd decision.

I am a bit puzzled about camcorder auto-focus.  I have an old (but good) Canon HX-A1 camcorder that does a better job of auto-focus then any of my DSLR or mirrorless cameras do in video mode. I thought the answer might lie in something like the Sony SLT a99 II in video mode because it can incorporate phase detection auto-focus.  But I see that in video mode it only shoots at one aperture.   Then I realized that phase detection only works well within certain aperture limits (no problem for...

Hello I have been searching for some wide angle options for my A99 II. I came across an used Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 AF II DG HSM for 630$. Before I go ahead with the purchase, I wanted to get some expert advice. I tried the lens and I really like the huge wide angle I am getting with it. Nothing really special about the varying aperture and it obviously doesn't support the Hybrid AF. But I am really not at a level where I can perfectly judge the lens. Is this lens good? and is the price...

Hello I recently got my A99 II and was exploring the menus. I was wondering how to shoot 4k in the super 35 mode. I only find one item on the menu 'Super 35 mode' which has 3 options: ON, Auto and OFF. Can someone explain me what these options mean and how can I set it to shoot 4k in super 35 mode? Any help would be appreciated, Thank you!

Hello I recently bought a A99 II and a 50mm f1.4 CZ lens. I was wondering if there is a trustworthy insurance to have my gear covered. I searched online but haven't found much information except for a company called 'esurranty'. Is this a good insurance? or is there any other option to get my gear insured? As we have a huge community of professional photographers here at DPR, I was hoping to get some useful info. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

It's suprising for me after reading so much positive reviews of A99 II all over internet. DPReview awarded it just 85% even Silver Award. Is it really not deserving more or thats the truth reviled? I notice one line like not enough lens range, dont we have enough Sony lens, Minolta Lens and large range of M42 lens? when A99 got 84% Gold award years back it like big bang among other camera now A99 II with 85% Silver it's like too low than expected. Share your views friends. --RegardsAfzal...

I have an A700 that is obviously quite old. I have quite a few good lenses as well as both a 3600 and 5600 HSD Minolta flash. I know these use the Minolta proprietary flash connector. I admittedly haven't been using the equipment much lately but I think I'm going to get back into it, especially because I have an 8-week trip-of-a-lifetime coming up. So when packing up my camera equipment I realized perhaps I should get a newer body. I see that there is the A99 II coming out but for better or...
