Excerpt: Having started with a DSLR-100, then a DSLR-500, then a SLT-A77V and now a SLT-A99V. It has been a progression and each step has been a phenomenal experience. Each camera has been a quantum leap in performance, features and reliability from the previous.
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.
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.
Summary: This is one fantastic camera, an upgrade from my 2007 DSLR-A700. I'm somewhat saddened by the move to mirrorless technology because it spells and end (probably) to the DSLR where my hands are quite happy with the DSLR/DSLT size rather than the ICL bodies of today.

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.
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.
Summary: This was a gift to myself.Always wanted to do photography for a living and this is my foot in the door.I read and then re-read anything and everything i could find on the Nikon D800,Canon 5D MarkIII and this the Sony A99.After reading ALL the reviews and handling each camera the Sony was the clear...
