Summary: Let me first start off by saying I own a lot of glass. I also have had a fair share of cameras including Sony's latest higher end SLT cameras. I also shoot multiple systems including film. Mirrorless, full frame- all of it. This camera stacks up very well.
Summary: Having used the Minolta Maxxum 7000 for years and then switching to Sony's A 700, I thought I was in Heaven and then the A 900 came out. I found myself in a bad place. Owning what I had thought was the last(haha) camera I would need to purchase.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization, Strong Construction
Summary: The a-900 will show you how good your old maxxum lens are. I'm useing the 28-135mm lens as my walk around lens again, last 1 1/2 years been useing CZ 16-80mm len(a700). A-900 fit good in your hands.
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Image Stabilization, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction

Summary: The A900 view finder makes MF easy even when AF can not lock in. (Low light) Those expensive Zeiss and G lenses REALLY shine on this camera. 70-200ssm, 24-70z, 135z are awesome. 85z, great photos but slow AF. Focus hold buttons can be set to activate Intelligent Preview. "Intelligent Preview"?
Pros: 24 mp - crop away, Durable, High Quality, Intelligent Preview, Manual Focus, Micro Lens Adjustments, Quick Accurate Auto Focus, What a view finder
Cons: Does not have "Eye Start", Mirror recoil loud slap, More noise than v4 A700
Summary: I could not have made an informed opinion until now, having learned so much about the camera in the last year and upgrading to first class optics I can safely say its one of the best cameras I have ever owned. (I have owned a fair few). The sensor is amazing as is the dynamic range settings.
Pros: Overall Feel, clarity and control, traditional features, versatility
Cons: choice of accessories (now becoming better). Battery life when tethered
Summary: oltre al prezzo che sicuramente la rende appetibile possiamo dire che questa macchina non più modernissima della Sony famiglia Alpha racchiude in se moltissime caratteristiche di macchine professionali.
Excerpt: Anbefales. Jeg er meget godt fornøy med mitt kamera.
Pros: -Enormt bred dynamisk egenskaper -Solid konstruksjon -Produserer ekstremt skarpe bilder -Lett meny å forstå seg på -Rikelig med finesser og presets -utskrift i størrelse a2 og oppover i 300dpi+ er sannelig en fornøyelse -Lang batterilevetid -Perfekt til landskap, macro, portrett, studio m.m
Cons: -Støy over iso 3200. Men i løpet av dette året har jeg ennå ikke hatt bruk for iso over 800. -Manuelt valgt mellom CF og Pro duo kort -Ikke innebygd fjernstyring av IR blitser -Ikke vanlig ISO hotshoe men Sony sin egen løsning
