Impact Review: Sony Alpha A99 at dpreview [update: and Photo Review too!]

UPDATE 9:45pm ET: If you can't get enough of the Sony Alpha A99 today, you are in luck, because as of this update, a new A99 review has been published at Photo Review.

Speaking of reviews, we just finished updating the latest reviews at the Camera Reviews stream.

There haven't been many completed reviews for the Sony Alpha A99 full frame SLT dSLR so far, but today, the camera got a high-profile review, a 23-page report at As usual, we won't reveal the findings here, but if you are in a hurry, or running out of time, you can jump to the conclusions before jumping to conclusions. Did it get an Olympic medal? And if yes, where does it stand on the podium? :)

The review is discussed in the comments section of the dpreview review announcement, along with the dpreview Sony SLR forums and the Dyxum forums.

The only other review of the camera we could find at the Reviews Stream was a week-long report published in October at The Luminous Landscape.

Availability-wise, the full framer is steadily in-stock at its starting price of $2,800 at various authorized Sony retailers including Adorama and B&H Photo and Amazon. Each of the aforementioned retailers offers 2% back in promotional rewards (2% of $2,800 = $56)
