I’ve been checking his website daily for a99 updates and here’s what the rumor is:

  • 102 AF point AF (11 cross).
  • AF range
  • MF assist
  • Dual Phase detection system (with AF phase pixels on sensor)
  • 30 sec and 1/8000 maximum shutter speed
  • Time Lag 0.05 sec.
  • Shutter life guarantee of 200,000 cycles
  • 2.360k OLED electornic viewfinder
