Sony Alpha a99


This is the first full-frame DSLR to record movies in true 1080p resolution (others cheat by filling in missing data). It's also the first DSLR to combine two autofocus sensors, so it focuses at breakneck speeds, whether taking 24.3-megapixel stills or video. [$2,800 body only, lenses start at $250;]
