Sony has today announced a new flagship interchangeable lens camera, the A99 II. The new camera has a DSLR-style body with a full-frame, 42.4-megapixel sensor. It also has a new hybrid phase detection autofocus system that has 79 dedicated cross points and 399 supplemental points. Sony has packed all of its imaging technology into this camera, including a 5-axis image stabilization system and 4K video recording with full pixel readout.
Sony says this camera is targeted toward pros, sport photographers, and wildlife photographers. It is compatible with the A-system line of lenses. Sony claims that its hybrid autofocus system enables it to work better in dim light with greater accuracy (up to -4 EV). The image sensor has an expanded ISO range of 50 to 102,400 and does not have a low pass filter, which Sony says ensures better image quality. The image stabilization system provides up to 4.5 stops of correction with any A-system lens mounted to the camera
