The hits keep coming for this camera. First we caught a glimpse of some High ISO samples that produced images that were not as good as 5 year older Canon 5D2. This was surprising as Sony makes many of the sensors by Nikon. Including the awesome D800. But I am still holding judgement just yet so we can see some other images just in case that initial run was a fluke. You can see those here.
Now we have discovered, on a little before seen footnote hidden at the bottom of the A99 product page at the website....
“New AF-D Mode” - This highly advanced Continuous AF mode uses 19 AF points with reliable depth-direction focusing performance to steadfastly capture subjects and is strongly assisted by the 102-point multi-point focal-plane phase-detection AF sensor. It continues to accurately focus on the subject whether the subject is moving in depth or plane direction.
4. Note that at the time of launch the following lenses support AF-D: SAL2470Z, SAL2875, SAL50F14, SAL300F28GII, SAL70400G, SAL50050F4G.”
