"fewer lenses available"??? there is the exact same number of lenses available, both sony and minolta lenses work with both cameras, if anything, less lenses work with the a99 when it comes to sigma lenses, some of the older lenses do not work with the slt's and none of this shows me the performance in way of IQ in comparing the 2 cameras.
