Hmmm. So I have A100, A700, A900 and A77II. I am seriously GAS'ed about A99II.
One of the reason I am holding back is "too many bodies". I think I found clarity.
Thank you Andy and Jeff. My bank balance may suffer but I am sure going to feel
better. :lol:

Sury
P.S. I am told 135/1.8, 24-70/2.8 and 24/2 Z lenses make a fantastic combo on A99II.
Please confirm it and help me make the case to the Finance Minister. :wink:

Sury, you're absolutely correct. Those lenses will make an excellent combo with the A99II. Also, I was given a message to pass on to you. The Finance Minister just called and she said, "Tell Sury he can buy whatever he wants without out any fear of repercussions."

Remember -
Photography runs better on GAS.

Jeff,
Thank you. The message has been confirmed in person too. I cited your post and she confirmed it. :lol:
Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated. :D

Hi Sury;

Your photo-physician Jeff is not helping with the 'inner discipline enhancement and application' treatment prescribed, Sury. Maybe you should seek a second opinion for further clarity. :D I see that you have a 'small museum-worthy' collection of bodies from Sony... Keeper of the Sony Alpha-body and Lenses Legacy ?
If you're decided on acquiring though, who can stop you...seeing that you have a supporting Ministery of Finance all to yourself and name. :)
I just hope that Sony reads your post and thinks a little more deeply into how to shape the next generation of body+lenses, with all things going no-Alpha no more... :) Dedicated would-be customers like you may help them make a U-turn back to the roots.

Yildiz,
If you put it that way, I have to sacrifice for sake of fellow Alpha (Mount) users. :lol:

Well, then... :D

The 'wise and envisioning men' at Sony Headquarters;
The ball is in your court. May you respond with some neat optics, smart sensors and shiny metal housings! :D

And, Sury;

:) We aren't holding our breaths but thanks for volunteering.

Thank you Yildiz for your encouragement. :lol: Yesterday I realized that I have not used my A900 at all in 2017. That made me wonder if I need another body. 42MP sounds so tempting.

Hi Sury; :D

As I mentioned earlier, you have a small 'museum of Alpha mounts' in your possession. That's impressive because many already moved onto more advanced bodies and mounts whilst selling the legacy cameras of Sony Alpha.

I think you already made up your mind and, yes, 42 mp and many other features sound more than promising... :D And you already sound happy as though you already have them in possession! I hope you get a good sample of each and enjoy a good round of shootings.
Don't forget to share the photos with us ! :) This enthusiasm translating into new photos, new endeavours with new camera and lenses sounds hopeful.

I think the proper response to that problem is to see if another PCA member needs an A900.

I can think of at least one!

Dusty
An a700 and couple of a580s, plus even more lenses.
