    Sony A99 Rumors (Specs & Price)

    Saw this today. I am excited about the camera. I was hoping for a more competitive price (~$2500 or so.) With Nikon coming with both the D600 and the D800/800e popping up more frequently now, it seems like Sony needs to be more competitive in pricing structure IMO. Hopefully there are some new A-mount lenses to announce as well.

    I am watching this with interest. Sony going against Nikon who also use the same sensors but offer cameras at substantially lower prices.

    Yeah I will probably get one either way for a FF Sony body. The specs sound pretty nice on paper but I was hoping more for a $2500 price point or about $2800 with the battery grip. Hoping that the rumored Zeiss 50/1.2 is announced as well.

    The EVF is cheaper than a pentaprism, no?

    I have no idea about parts costs.

    Too early to get excited either way

    - It's still a rumour
    - stabilized street prices are always below intro price, sometimes a lot, sometimes less.

    So time will tell what the real competitiveness is vs. other similar cameras.

    I agree. I'm hoping this is just a a rumor and not reality.
