Sony A99 Rumors

The Sony A99 has been rumored for many months now with more features and specs firming up as we move closer to Photokina 2012.  Now, it seems, full specs for the 24MP full frame A99 have surfaced courtesy of Photo Rumors.

At this point, there’s not a whole lot that’s surprising; however, notably absent is the rumored 1080p HD video capture at 120fps.  Instead, the specs list the A99 as shooting 1080/60p HD video.

Yawn. Wake me up if the rumored full-frame NEX is announced.

Interesting it has 102 autofocus points. Double my D3s. Quite fast @ 10fps at that resolution. I see they put that translucent tech in it as well. Nothing ground breaking but interesting to see their pro body joining the specs of the other manufacturers.

Are not the days of the Translucent mirror technology numbered now that hybrid AF systems will give you the Phase detect AF without the need for a translucent mirror?
