Where are the used A99II cameras

Recommended Posts

I have been trawling the usual 2nd hand markets, and I find a distinct lack of A99II cameras. My question is, is the camera that good no one will move it, or is it that it was so expensive no one could afford it?.

The A99II sold quite well, better than Sony expected. It's an amazing camera and people have no reason to sell them. It's the perfect camera for A-mount users. It's possible to find used copies but they are few and far apart.

I think that it never sold in large enough numbers originally to populate a used market. Sony may have been happy with the sales but they were tiny in comparison to Canikon mass sales.

The used market is always a much smaller subset of the new market as trades often go privately.

One could post WTB notices in various media for a better chance.

Just did quick search and found a few. 

The problem you face is that good used samples are close to the new price.

There are a ton of sellers for new units so why bother with used?

I would definitely want the better price of used gear but in this market it seems to be unavailable at cheap prices.
