    I do not have A99. I jumped to A99M2 straight from A900. I enjoy the 12fps and the 42MPx on M2.On my recent trip to Seattle, WA, USA, I chose to shoot bracketed shots due to unseasonably cool/coldcloudy, rainy and gloomy weather with occasional clearing of the sky. I certainly over did with 9 image […]

    I can only go on 2 days shooting with both and the A99 just outclassed the A77ii. There is nothing wrong with the sensor on the crop camera, it's improved over the A77, a bit - though IMO the A99 is still better in low light and dynamic range.Thing is despite playing with the AF […]

    Well, about optics, a99 camera is serious, professional, should work accordingly well with most lenses. Once I had both the a77-2 and a99, the a77-2 has a faster and better AF than the a99, the quality of pictures, especially in low light, is the same, both cameras are 24MP. Another thing is how to use […]

Alpha and NEX overtake Nikon UK DSLR sales

Chris Cheeseman writes in Amateur Photographer, reporting on figures released by photo industry analysts GfK, that Sony interchangeable lens camera sales in the UK have overtaken Nikon, moving the company into second position behind Canon.

In the Japanese home market, Canon remains top, Nikon second and Sony is third with over 15% of the market share. No attempt is made by AP to analyse the importance of Sony having a market share which is roughly half that of Nikon and Cano respectively, in that market.

The figures relate to the year 2010 – a calendar year – and it needs to be considered that Sony’s NEX system effectively went on sale slightly before midway during that term, and the SLT system one quarter later. Some Sony models were only introduced after photokina, in the final three months of the year.

In fact, it’s almost impossible to judge Sony’s impact when 2010 is viewed as a year rather than in terms of monthly or quarterly figures. If a graph was to be drawn with four lines on it – Nikon, Canon, Sony and ‘everything else’ – it looks as if the 11% overall decline in Nikon and Canon would contrast with a steep late year climb from Sony.
