Update: Added more outdoor shots, some low-light
Dave Etchells is still out in California shooting with Sony's latest cameras, and he just uploaded sample full-resolution images from the Sony Alpha A99. Dave says that the company's new 24.3-megapixel, full-frame DSLR is "another great camera, very responsive, and has what looks like a very sure-footed AF on it, at least in my limited experience so far."

"I think it's a camera that could change a lot of pros' minds about Sony. While the NEX E-mount system is somewhat limited in the availability of really good glass, the A-mount system has some really superb optics in the lineup. Combine those with the camera's speed, full-time AF, flexibility and excellent image quality (plus great video chops), and I think it could be a real game changer."

Check out a selection of sample full-res images in our A99 Gallery. (More will be posted later today or tomorrow, so stay tuned for updates.)


If you missed it, Dave also posted several sample photos taken with Sony's new full-frame, compact RX1 in the RX1 Gallery. He hopes to post some samples from the Sony Alpha NEX-6 next.
