    I was upgrading from the a580 so it was very much needed as I shoot weddings a lot. I don't extensive research on this body and compared it to the a99 before making the decision. I'm so glad that I did! The focusing speed is fantastic and the low light capabilities are exactly what I was looking for. It's quite different from my a580 but that's definitely a good thing! Highly recommend.

    Ok...so I know the price is steep. But if youre looking at picking up the 99ii you are pretty much into photography and knoooow what youre getting yourself into! For us long time Alpha users...this is a gem! Been using it for a couple of months now and I can say that I am beyond thrilled! The focus points are so amazing that there is a bit of a learning curve!

    "Yes". The description is accurate: "... capture every minute of the action with this Sony a99 II digital camera body (A-mount). With 4K movie technology, this camera lets you bring the moments home in crystal clarity. (No detectable)... blurring when you're shooting rapid sequences (bracketing)". I am still testing all the features. Lots of fun. Fred

    It is a great A-mount camera, too bad the lens selection for it is becoming dated and BestBuy store selection for A-mount lenses is limited to almost 0. I just love how this camera feels: solid, good ergonomics, great resolution and...full frame sensor.

    This is my first full frame Sony camera. I have used the A77 and A77ii both great cameras, but the A99ii is a fantastic upgrade. I don't regret the purchase at all. I do wildlife photography and occasionally a wedding.
