    Re: Fun with the A99!

    Thanks Cindy,
    Shutter speed was 1.3 seconds.
    I wish there was more to shoot around here though.
    Well at least I got a good image with my A99 which has been sitting in my backpack for a few months now.
    Do you think the image looks level or a little skewed?

    Looks level to me.
    I know about living in boring places! I bet you will find some interesting things to shoot if you go out looking. It isn't like being in NYC or Seattle or Hawaii!

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    Now that the A99 has been out for a little time now and people have gotten somewhat comfortable with it. How is the autofocus speed and accuracy on this camera? Does it work for fast action and subjects moving quickly (like sports, kids playing, etc?)

    Hired,

    Ran into a guy on Sunday who was shootng our synagogue's Purim celebration with his brand spanking new a99 and ZA 24-70/2.8. He told me that he loves the EVF and everything else, but in terms of focusing on "event type" subjects, it still leaves a lot to be desired. He said it still can't hold a candle to the Nikon system that he sold for the a99, but that everything else was better than the Nikon.

    Thanks for the reply... I was afraid of that probable answer. I've been looking at the D800/E and the 5DmkIII (or OM-D) as a possible dSLR for a few working projects that might be easier to do with AF. That being said I already have a 70-200/2.8 and that would be about all I needed for the projects so it would've been great if the A99 would nail it and I could just dump the A77+16-50+grip (and use the money towards an A99) instead of the whole kit. The Leica M will still remain as my primary system because that's what I love to shoot for myself but I'm trying to cut all the unnecessary camera "fluff" out.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    If you want a DSLR that is suited for any kind of fast moving, sports, etc., look no farther then either a Nikon D3, D3S, D4, or Canon's offering.

    For almost everything else, as long as you don't need 36mp of the D800, D800E, the new Sony A99 is a really nice camera...

    I was leaning toward the 5DmkIII. I really would like the 6D (if it had more cross type autofocus points.) The D600 is an option as well. I really would like to stay in the 16-24 MP range.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    I much prefer the A99 over the 5DmkIII. The color from Sony A900/A99 is better to my eyes than both Nikon and Canon. I have using the A99 for few months and so far I am very happy with it.

    I hear you and generally I would agree with you on the color thing but the 5DmkIII isn't bad. I don't know what they did with the Canon formula but it's a lot better than how I remember Canon. The same can be said for the 1Dx.

    As for my uses AF speed and accuracy WILL MATTER above all if I invest into a separate 35mm system. As for color - I prefer my M9 over everything else that I've seen in 35mm for color... I reserve judgement on the M240. It's all a matter of opinion and preference though.

    The focus accuracy of A99 is excellent. It is actually better than A900 for my 24/2 ZA and 50/1.4 Sony lenses. I also felt the A99 is more accurate than my D800. Without having the mirror, the shutter operation is much smother and than that of the D800.

    Thanks. How accurate is it with fast motion though. Everything I read puts the D600, 5Dmk3, and of course the 1Dx/ D4 way ahead of it for what I want. I think I may just put the money towards another M and manual focus with adapted lenses on a mirrorless body. I've gotten decent at that.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    This guy seemed to think that the A99 was very good...

    "In real world use, the AF-D setting is really quite impressive. The lenses/camera can track moving targets in the same way that Olympus’s Micro Four Thirds cameras can. But it’s not only that: the motors are fast, the objects can be tracked through the entire sensor area, and the camera can also do this while maintaining incredible sharpness. It is indeed a game changer."

    More, and yes I know its pop photo...

    "One place where the Sony A99 did exceptionally well is in autofocus speed. This is a new Hybrid AF system, so it’s especially impressive that the A99 proved the fastest in its class. At EV12, the brightest light level in our test, the A99 showed blazing speed by focusing in 0.27 second. It wasn’t until EV6, the equivalent of a very well-lit room, that it fell to 0.36 sec, faster than either the 5D Mark III or the D800 at their best"

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    For kids, the Nikon seemed faster at A/F (I sold Nikon moved to Sony), but it's almost impossible to miss now for other reasons. I used to shoot the D700 in short bursts of at least three to lock on. Focus Ranging and focus peaking are killer for kiddies. The biggest complaint is that the A/F area is pretty small. The tracking doesn't seem to recover as well as Nikon. 3D mode and DMF are great, but it's the visual feedback in the EVF that makes this camera.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    Has anyone noticed a slowdown on the A99 during power on?

    I've let a 32GB card fill up and it takes over 4s to power on. I'll format shortly to see if the card is the cause, but really quite annoying.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    WB and Andrew:

    Thank you for the update. Question: is the camera great at focusing on objects that move side to side or is it also lightening fast at focusing on subjects moving towards the shooter. Having learned to shoot with a rangefinder, I can pretty much pick my spot in either situation and get at least one good shot. The issue is really with subjects moving towards me. Thanks again.

    Hey gang, I am back from the hospital with a clean bill of health. Went out for a walk today and shot some flowers (boring, I know) and processed them with the latest version of Capture One Pro v7. Shot wide open for bokeh and speed (it was windy today).

    Took my A99 and NEX7 to Vegas this week. I really am starting to appreciate the A99 more, though I like the NEX size better. Can't beat the A99 files.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    I am much, much better. Thanks for asking. I am buying Marc's Sony 70-200 G + 1.4x TC kit he has listed in the B/S section. I have a bootcamp style beginner's photography class being listed on livingsocial.com (soon) and plan on using some of the profits to acquire that lens combo. I know Marc takes very good care of his gear and I want to help him out too.

    Got to try out my new Sigma 70-200 OS version today. Not bad at 200mm, whereas my Sony was soft. SOOC Jpegs

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    ECSH,
    So in your humble opinion, the "newest" Sigma 70-200/2.8 outperforms the Sony version?
    What about at 70mm, 135mm at F5.6 or F8?

    Carlos, I was going to purchase Marc's lens to, but keep hearing rumors about a new one coming out. Oh well I am sure you will love the lens.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    ecsh,
    can you post some shots at f/4 at various focal lengths? This is what I shoot for ballet and need to check the sharpness. The Sony has the advantage with the extra focus points and in-body range limiter on the A99.

    Yours may have been soft, but my Sony 70-200/2.8G is not by any measure. Just click the pics,
    the singular fawn image was at 200mm.

    Nicer contrast, Bokeh and tonal roll off compared to the Sigma IMHO.

    That is more than possible. I had two soft copies of the 70-200, and gave up until this Lens. I saw the fawn image and its very nice, but, to be honest with you, its not twice the price nicer for a hobbyist.<G>

    I Understand the price issue ... getting incremental improvements always cost more ... so it really depends on needs and use.

    Frankly, the current prices of all the big three camera company's lenses are getting crazy ... $2,300 for a Canon 24-70/2.8? Really? You'd think there was no recession, and it was boom times world-wide.

    As these companies jack up the resolution to 36 meg and beyond ... the lenses have to get better and better. The problem with that is everyone suffers the higher cost lenses whether they want mega-meg cameras or not.

    Trying to keep this thread alive.
    I went to D.C. yesterday with Dave VA, another get dpi friend.
    Unfortunately this was not a good year for the Cherry Blossom festival.
    Oh well at least we went to check it out.
    Here is one taken with my A99 and Zeiss 50/2

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    Just wondering if anyone is using the VG-C99 vertical grip with there A99?
    If so any opinions on it besides it's high cost?
    Thanks

    I have it and love it. I've always thought Sony had the best vertical grip for actually using as a vertical grip, and with three batteries I've never actually run out of power.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    I took the A99 to the Milwaukee zoo. I was using the Minolta "Big Beercan" 75-300 f/4.5-5.6. I used my 500 AF Reflex for the last shot. Second shot (Diana Monkey) was taken at iso 25,600 through glass. The lighting was really terrible, but I was able to get something.

    Re: Fun with the A99!

    How did you mount this Rokkor on your A99? Adapter with glass in it?

    Kind regards, Michiel

    Hi Michiel, thanks for your "like". Your are correct, an adapter with glass was used.

    Checking for onion bokeh on the new Tamron 24-70 2.8 lens. I see none. Pretty happy with this lens so far.
