Of course it's a point & shoot... Sony themselves have classified it as such by putting it in the Cybershot family. But who cares?! There have been plenty of terrific 'P&S' cameras in the past, such as the Olympus XA, Stylus, Pentax Espio Mini, Nikon 35Ti/28Ti, the various Contax cameras.... I'm sure there are more.
Lots of people care. Half the reason people in this thread are poo-pooing the camera sight unseen because it says Sony on it. If it said Canon or Nikon, half of the naysayers would be raving about how great a value is at $2800 and making outlandish claims that it inverses the rule of thirds to the rule of 3. The other half are poo pooing it because it's in the P&S category. Sony should have marketed it as an Alpha since they're already disadvantaged by brand name alone.
PS - I've gone back several times to play with the A99, it runs circles around the Canon/Nikon offerings in the same class. If I wasn't so heavily invested in Canon glass and was in the market for a camera, this is what I'd get. Sony has their stuff straight, Canon and Nikon are selling revised iterations of the same old thing instead of being innovative.
THIS IS SO TRUE!!!
