For the longest time ever, Sony has been focusing on its mirrorless range and we guess to a certain point it makes sense. After all mirrorless cameras appeared to be the more favored choice these days amongst amateurs and professionals alike, thanks to their more compact bodies and slightly more modern features.
However for those of you who love Sony’s A-mount series of cameras, you’ll be pleased to learn that Sony has not forgotten about it. In fact the company has recently taken the wraps off their latest A-mount camera, the A99 II, which according to Sony will offer up extremely fast autofocus and it also seems to be packing a rather large sensor to boot.
The camera will feature a full-frame 42.4MP sensor with hybrid phase detection autofocus that has 79 dedicated cross points, and 399 supplemental points, meaning that locking in that autofocus should be a pretty speed affair. It has an ISO range of 50 and will extend up to 102,400.
There is also a 1,024×768 OLED viewfinder, a body made from magnesium, and also the ability to shoot in 4K. Unfortunately as this is clearly aimed at professionals, it will not come cheap. Sony has priced the A99 II at $3,200 and it is expected to be made available this coming November.
