I will get mine delivered today :D
I do a fair amount of video and the A99 is a tool that fits my needs perfectly!

Stef Since you are the first one here please can you report about AF.

If you press magnification button are there available all the AF sensors or just a green square in the middle of the frame (Try also in JPEQ)?

If i enable DMF in AF-A after the camera focus and lock ,can i have magnification and focus peaking for Fine tuning AF immediately since i turn the AF ring or shall i push the magnification button (Try also in JPEQ)? Nex6 have this function with the 16-50 and since they both have the new sensor technology i want to know also if this is available

Is it in telemode T10/T8 all the sensors available or just a green square in the middle of the frame (Try also in JPEQ)?

How much can i minimise the AF range (for example on 300G SSM i can program far and near the same distances ) they don't have to be different distances.This is very usefull when (Just hold the shutter pressing down and when the subject enter in the AF Range the camera start to fire :D (This is the best future i ever seen on a lens and hope the A99 can have the same)

Thanks in advance

I assume you mean the "smart teleconverter" (magnifies the image by a factor of 1.4 @ 10m or 2 @ 4.6m) or the "zoom" function (up tp 2x which does not reduce the file size) with magnifier? If so, yes all squares are available. It only works in jpeg mode though. Should you mean the magnifier to check focus, well then while you are magnifying in manual focus mode or DMF then there are no green squares, just an orange one that you have to press again to magnigy that particular part of your image.

If i enable DMF in AF-A after the camera focus and lock ,can i have magnification and focus peaking for Fine tuning AF immediately since i turn the AF ring or shall i push the magnification button (Try also in JPEQ)? Nex6 have this function with the 16-50 and since they both have the new sensor technology i want to know also if this is available
To the best of my knowledge you can not assign the AF-A button to become automatically DMF. You now have a DMF option with all the other AF options. And no it does NOT automatically magnify your image, you have to press the button first. (Which I prefer)

You can not set it exactly the same but i.e. approx 0.5m and 0.6m

Thanks in advance

Thanks a lot for the reply.
 Every person have different needs for example high ISO and Video is a must for you and for me the AF flexibility.I already saw what you said on you tupe videos but is better to hear it from a trust person. :)
 A real upgrade from a77 AF system and hope to see/hear the benefits of the AF-D autofocus mode over the normal AF-C mode

Rex, for me the important factors are not high ISO at all. I usually do not shoot in low light situations. What I really want is the fantastic dynamic range that the Sony cameras have, good af system and very good video. I also like clean jpeg machines as I use jpegs more often than I thought I would.
