Sony α99 II
The Sony α99 II is the flagship Sony DSLR and continues the Sony α SLT line of Sony A-mount camera bodies. It was first announced by Sony on September 19, 2016 at photokina 2016 and replaced the original Sony α99. Its single-lens translucent design allows for faster focusing and shooting than other DSLRs. Consequently, at 12 FPS, it can shoot roughly twice as fast in continuous burst mode as competing models as of 2016. The α99 II also features best-in-class low-light autofocus.
