The A99 II is the current flagship full frame DSLR style camera for Professionals made by Sony. It has the best autofocus system ever created for a Sony camera, and offers incredible build quality, insane pro oriented features, awesome battery life, and image quality to die for. At a price point of $3198, the Sony A99 II blows away most of the competition when you look from the perspective of bang for the buck in my opinion.
Well everybody, including myself, has been fixated on the new Mirrorless camera phenomenon. They are smaller, lighter, have the same killer image quality, and for most people, provide everything needed in a camera body. However, they are not really pro oriented in a number of ways. For example, they do not have the super rugged build quality, they don’t have the best battery life in general, lens selection is close now, but still lacking in some areas, and they tend to cost more for what you actually get performance wise.
Sony DSLR Style Camera Time
I think it’s time I give some love an attention to the DSLR style A-Mount cameras like the pro oriented A99 II and A77 II in particular! For the current lens line-up, be sure to check out my Sony A-Mount Lens Guide, which is completely redesigned and updated!!
I’m currently reviewing the New Mirrorless Sony A9, but after that is complete, I plan on getting the Sony A99 II for Review! With that in mind I wanted to get your requests in for what lenses and accessories you would like me to test and/or review? Please let me know in the comments area below or shoot me an email if you would rather.
Quality Sony A99 II Reviews and Videos
After years of speculation that Sony had abandoned the A-Mount, everyone (including us) were shocked when the A99 II was announced, boasting the best specs of any full frame camera on the market. We took the A99 II out to shoot action and landscapes, and talked to photographer Ken Locke about shooting portraits with this flagship A-Mount camera. Is it worth investing in a mount on life support? Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake take a look.

I take a look at the Sony a99ii, Sony’s newest top of the range full frame A-mount camera. Featuring Sony’s translucent mirror technology with dual phase detection autofocusing, this camera looks to be promising for people that shoot fast action photos. The camera also features a 42 megapixel sensor, 12 fps, 5-axis stabilisation, Wi-Fi and a lot more features for any type of photographer.

The Sony A99II absolutely has my favorite spec list of all time. While using one of the most amazing full frame 42mp sensors on the market today from the A7RII, the A99II is still able to maintain 12fps with full AF and AE. But there is always more to the story so let’s dive a bit deeper with this Sony A99II Review

In the famous words of an unnamed Monty Python character: ‘I’m not dead yet!’
Joking aside, the a99 II is the ultimate SLT. It is the SLT that should be used by any photographers that have had prior doubts about the system, as its all-round balance of features and capabilities leave the ultimate decision for many photographers up to two things: EVF vs. OVF, and the lens system. For those that love SLT, the a99 II is definitely worth a look, but for those that need a solid all-rounder, or a lens selection beyond A-mount, the complications of SLT may not be worth the advantages.

As you can see from these quality Sony A99 II Reviews, it’s a beast of a camera and a clear contender for the title shot! I would love to own one to replace my now old Canon 5d Mark II, but I honestly don’t want to go thru the pain stacking task of selling all the L lenses and accessory gear I have for my occasional pro type work. Plus, my wife loves the Canon for taking photos of the kids and stuff, so why mess up a good thing. She does not want to learn another camera system, and I can’t blame her for that.
