The Sony A99 is the latest DSLR from Sony, and in many ways it is one of their most aggressively marketed to date. The camera features a full frame sensor and an EVF that has to be one of the best we've seen on the market. Targeted at the professional and high end enthusiast, the camera features many diversions away from typical Sony DSLRs. For example, the camera features a new hot shoe designed for a new type of flash and accessories. This means that PocketWizards and other third party flashes can be used easily.
Additionally, it is also possibly the smallest and most lightweight DSLR out there; and part of this is due to the lack of a moving prism and viewfinder.
The A99 features a 24.3Mp Full Frame sensor, a Dual AF system with two phase detection sensors, a 1,266K dot XGA OLED electronic viewfinder, 1,440K dot 3 inch LCD, 6fps shooting, 1080p HD video, sensor based image stabilization, and loads of other controls including GPS built in. The camera has an ISO range of 100 to 25,600. However, it can go lower with extended range if needed.
To boot, there's also a hefty $2,798 price tag attached.
