Initial impressions are very good. This is a very well featured and specified full frame camera with Sony's unique SLT technology - no longer do have to have 'mirror up' and inferior focusing for live view. I'm only a hobbyist, enthusiast, amateur and I've been using SLR's on and off for almost 40 years - I've had brief forays into bridge cameras when times and funds wouldn't allow anything else but SLR's are where my heart is. This time though I wanted something different and Sony's SLT technology hits the mark - it still feels like an SLR but with different (better?, maybe) features: my short list of features and spec included a fully articulating screen, a full frame sensor, a good shutter rate, weather sealing and better low light quality than what micro four thirds can offer. I know this a99 is 3 or more years old and is likely to be updated soon but any update is no doubt going to be more expensive - the a99 gives a lot of bang for buck - value for money. I've paired it with the Sony Zeiss 24-70 f2.8 zoom (mk1) which feels like a great combination.
Time to get out and shoot now!
