What do you want to know, Michael, besides the factor that the a99 shares the killer sensor with the RX1, and is a fine camera with the best EVF in existence ;-)
See a number of my Goa images shot with CY lenses on the Sony Minolta thread plus the Zeiss lens and discussion thread (or whatever it is called), will post more soon, from the 21mm and Leica Summ 50/2. There is an old thread on the camera also, died for lack of interest...why don't you buy a Canon anyway - strength in numbers, lol.
Real world? It worked flawlessly in three solid weeks in temps from -20 to +8C, several thousand images, it's great for manual focus, great customisability - new silent button/dial, 730 gram body, very quiet first curtain shutter, no mirror slap, files are extremely easy to work in post, ISO up to 3200 no worries, 5000+ with care, huge DR (real world not DxO world), files 2/3 the size of A900 files (craw), battery consumption around 200 images with lots of EVF/focus mag work/review in cold temps. I bought for the practicality of ensuring I got the images at shoot time, but found much more to like.
Not many are lucky enough to have even tried one, but that does not make it a poor camera - quite the contrary is true. Video not fantastic like some were expecting. Drop me a PM to avoid boring all the 99% non-Sony people here. The Dyxum outfit are rusted on Minolta lens diehards, you cannot say a word against them, believe me. There is a bit of talk and info on DPR Alpha.
