    Sorry I was referring to the A99 II.But if they are having problems supplying the high end cameras then I think this would put back the release of the A77 III or the rumoured A88 24MB version of the A99 II.Statistics: Posted by peterottaway — Tue Apr 25, 2017 10:18 am

Alpha 900 may (not!) have Live View
