New Sony A99 full frame pellicle-mirror SLT DSLR

It is almost raining full frame cameras today! Sony has announced their first pellicle-mirror 35mm full frame DSLR, the new Sony Alpha A99, with a model number that has finality in it, and a 24-megapixel CMOS sensor. This is the third full frame DSLR under the Sony banner, following the traditional-with-OVF Alpha A900 and A850 DSLRs.

It looks like $2800 is the official Sony full frame sensor camera price, because the Alpha A99 is also priced at $2800 just like the Sony RX1 which is the new king and queen of the Big Sensor Primes. It is available for pre-order at Amazon.
