    a99......WOW
    I have been shooting with the a99 for just a week and I must say WOW dynamic range like nothing I have seen before. I have always used an ND grad plus shoot for the highlights but this camera I can take it almost without a ND grad. I haven't shoot but a few landscapes but the ones I have shoot has not needed any processing as far as getting exposure balanced. These are almost out of camera. A little contrast and clarity, that's it. This may kill HDR software sales. Plus one and a half to two stop improvement with low noise at high ISO. 3200iso is very clean and 6400 very workable. I may send it back it has gotten to easy, not.

    The camera may be good, but the man behind it is superb!

    Once again, I must congratulation you, Greg. It looks like a fine camera. However, I'm in agreement with the rest of the gang here.......it's the photographer! You should get paid for all the "advertising" you do for these camera manufacturers. :D

    Beautiful shots! Thanks for sharing.
