So I got a chance to try an A99II at the LCE Photography show today.
It had the Zeiss 16-35 attached, and felt nicely balanced, focus was quick and looked good (but no card in camera, so no option to review on a larger screen).
The coverage of AF points was great, not sure exactly what mode it was in, but I could move the focus point to select a small block of points, and it would then pick the exact point from that group - in a busy room it was easy to select a single person and focus on them.
The EVF was very nice, clear and flicker free - I could definitely use it as a replacement for the A900 OVF.
Overall, thumbs up, and i need to start saving...
