I have the vertical grip for the A77 and am really happy with. That was the reason I bought the vertical grip for the A99. I do a lot of pictures mostly sports and at least a third I take in the vertical position. So it really pays off for me. The ergonomics of that grip are outstanding. If fits my hand perfectly. I have to mention I have small hands. Another benefit is it takes two additional batteries and preserves the one in the camera, so you have three batteries available. I don't know about you, but that is enough to shoot stills all day long all day strong with the GPS turned on. Money well spend in my opinion.

I bought the grip because I heard the battery life on the A99 is nothing to write home about, and my experiences have shown this to be true: It eats through your battery about as fast as the Gamegear does. So, I purchased the battery grip, and have been pleasantly surprised about how well it works. Sure, it does add some weight and size to the camera, but it really does include all the bells and whistles that you would expect. Overall, I am quite happy with this purchase. It does the job well.

Pros:
- 2 extra batteries
- Buttons function just like they do on the body
- On/Off toggle for preserving battery life/preventing random button clicks
- Sturdy, made of good materials

Cons:
- No image preview button on the grip
- MF/AF button feels a little high up, and I have big hands.
- Price. Try and get used if possible.

It is rugged and does what it's suppose to do. I like the fact that I can keep one battery in the body and two in the grip making three batteries total. This comes in handy with the extra power used by the a99s electronic view finder.
I recently shot an all day event and had power to spare at the end of the day. It's kind of expensive but if you shoot 100s of pictures you will need it and you will be glad you bought one.

This grip is much too tall, and worse is the camera won't sit flat on the table with in, but instead leans into the lens putting pressure on the lens. Control wise it is acceptable, with plenty of direct controls. It is easy enough to attach, but it does leave one of your batteries hard to access in the grip. This is acceptable since it gives access to three batteries.

I don't think I would buy this again, the only thing I really like about it is 2 extra battery capacity, but it is quick enough to change batteries when the action slows down. Otherwise it makes the camera too un-wieldy, even on a black rapid strap. The camera bangs into everything and it is clumsy to use. The only other reason I would look at this grip is if you shoot in portrait orientation for long periods of time, or if you just want to use your camera as a club.

It may look slightly awkward in photos, but the ergonomics and hand-feel are superior to Canon battery grips. Given that the a99 camera is power hungry and it's lone battery is weak, the battery grip is a good accessory for extended shooting.

Pros
+ Excellent ergonomics
+ The option to turn the battery grip buttons on/off while still getting juice to the camera either way
+ The camera's rubber connector cover flips into the grip rather than simply popping off (and subsequently getting lost)

Cons
- The price is very high for what it is - a battery grip
- A built-in wi-fi transmitter would have made this a home-run

I am not sure how I got along without this. It stores two additional batteries inside the grip, which has increased my shoot time significantly. The button location is the same as the A-99, so it is very intuitive. I would recommend this to anyone with an A-99.

Well, I believe those who buy this vertical grip must own a Alpha 99. So nothing more words with this SONY vertical grip specially for Alpha 99. It's SONY original vertical grip design for A-99. It fulfill all my needs, can store 2 extra batteries in the grip, plus the one in camera body, you have 3 batteries in total. You shouldn't worry about the power at all, the only thing you should consider is the weight. Especially when it work with a zoom lens, such as 70/400mm. The quality, compatibility, etc of this grip, you don't have to worry about. Enjoy!

Love my grip for my A99. Works well for me. I have freakishly long hands and needed that balance. I'm looking to get a second A99 and camera. Worth the investment.
