The new a99 features an Exmor R CMOS sensor that is BSI (Backside Illuminated) and uses tech that Sony calls Front-end LSI, which is supposed to produce more accurate autofocus. It also includes a new five-axis in-body stabilization and an ISO range of 102,400.
On the video side, the a99 Mark II is capable of full-frame, non-cropped 4K without pixel teleshift.
Images are not yet available from the a99 Mark II, as the firmware is far from final but the samples Sony showed were impressive. Sony plans to ship the a99 Mark II in November, and we’re looking forward to performing a full hands-on review of the new camera, and seeing how it stacks up to the competition.
As soon as we get our hands on it, too…a full review of Sony’s new flagship.
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
