I appreciate DP Review wanting to get the review of the a99ii as right as possible. Perhaps that is why it took so long to publish.

I'm not sure what I was expecting of the review, but I was pretty shocked their biggest complaint was AF. They insisted on comparing the AF to the D500, a crop sensor camera.

Medicine Man's comment in the comment section pretty much told me what I needed to know ;)

1320 Comments so far on the review.

The DP Review team is firmly planted in its stance that the AF system is unreliable, which goes against everything Medicine Man and WestCoastCanuck have said about it.

DP Review kept going back to "Well, it isn't as reliable as the D500 so . . . "
