  • Excerpt: I use this for personal use not for professional use however with a relly good lens would be excellent. It has a fast burst speed which has its use. Nothing yet that I find not so great except maybe getting used to where the on/off switch is.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD

What a difference

  • Excerpt: I just upgraded from the Sony a700 to the a99. I am very happy that I did. I hesitated because I was not sure about the EVF. I had heard mixed opinions on the EVF but after using it myself I love it. If you get this camera I suggest getting the grip with it for the extra battery power.

  • Excerpt: This camera is a beast with great ergonomics, splendid image quality and informative evf. I would challenge anyone shooting a pro style dslr for portraiture to give this a test drive. I'm confident that you will love it.

The Sony A99: Move Over Cold Dog. A Hot Dog Is Moving In

N. Wilson, Amazon
21 April 2015
  • Summary: A superb, impressive product. Sony has done it again. But be aware that the Sony A99 is not for the beginner photographer. It is a complex and sophisticated professional class instrument which demands a significant investment of time and effort in order to learn to use effectively.

good starter kit, but the bag blows.

  • Summary: So first things first. the A99 is a insanely stellar upgrade from my previous camera the Sony A37. a minor gripe is the AF sensors are clumped all in the center but there is a reason for this i am sure and i can compensate for its placement.

Now I need to learn how to drive it.

  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality

Fantastic piece of kit.

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic camera for the money. I upgraded from the A77 crop sensor to this A99 full frame and I am kicking myself for not doing it 2 years ago. The quality of image with the 24-70Z lens is just amazing even in low light. A camera I will be sticking with for many years I think.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

A99 has amazing capabilities!

CZM, B&H Photo
27 October 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera is an amazing addition/investment for my business. Although it does take some time to get accommodated to the many capabilities it has, once you learn it will give you limitless capabilities in the images you capture. The full Frame Censor gives my images clear, crisp detail.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO

Larry, B&H Photo
23 October 2014
  • Excerpt: An excellent addition to the Sonly line of DSLRs, the A99 has performed very well so far. My only complaint is the digitial viewfinder has a lag after taking a photo that occasionally makes it difficult to track the action.
  • Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Quiet
  • Cons: Digital View Finder, Short Battery Life
