For those of you who don't know the Sony A99 Mark II was announced about a week ago. https://www.dpreview.com ...hands-on-with-sony-a99-ii
I'm really surprised that I couldn't find any posts about it. The A7R II was talked about a TON on this site when it was first released, so I'm shocked I couldn't find anything on here about the new a99. Felt the same way about the Pentax K-1. It's the first digital 35mm camera by Pentax, has been out for almost 6 months, and there are only two posts about it on POTN.
Anyway......I am a Canon shooter but have been very disappointed with the outdated sensor tech of Canon. The 5DIV is VERY overpriced for what you get in my opinion. Someone asked me the other day what my ideal camera would be, and my response was immediately "the AF, sensor, and EVF of the A7RII in the 5D3 body". Well, since Canon seems to forever be in the stone age with their sensors I doubt I will ever get that, but the A99II looks about as close as I might get.
I've been contemplating the switch to Sony for awhile, and the fact that this camera will have so much more to offer at a lower price than the 5DIV, it might just finally push me over the edge. I still love Canon's glass, and I love how people have been using the Metabones adapter on the Sony A7RII with Canon lenses. I was planning on doing this with the a99II, but was told today by a friend who shoots Sony that the Metabones won't work with the A-Mount. Do they have an equivalent? I'm not sold on Sony's glass yet.
