Selling both the Sony a99ii and the Sony 70-400Gii lens.
Here is a recent monthly winner taken recently with this combo-
Buteo hears the dinner bell rs by MedicineMan4040, on Flickr

Here is an album of images from the a99ii + 70-400Gii (mostly birds/BIF)
https://www.flickr.com/photos/medicineman4040/albums/72157678880736775

Both are in fantastic shape with on minor rubs, hard to see and the very few are mostly on the battery grip (battery grip of course included, it is a Chinese knock-off but has never had any issues).

The a99ii purchased new B&H USA model 9/21/16 so a bit of warranty left.
I cannot determine shutter count on the a99ii (would be glad to if anyone knows how and I've determined shutter count on at least 12 bodies over the years) but it has to be very low because throughout the ownership I also owned 1DXii, 7Dii, 5Dsr, A7Rii, and a few more; so no body ever racked many clicks.
Neither the a99ii or the 70-400Gii have ever been dropped or rained on; though the 70-400Gii was also used on a Sony SLT a77ii and was misted on for a few seconds near a waterfall.
Why selling. Selling the a99ii was a hard decision because I find the a99ii the best all around body every made. It is like melding the 1DXii and the 5Dsr and the a99ii has the greatest sensor available in a DSLR like body. That said the a99ii has a quirk or two. The buyer should make note of the lag issues reported (to me they are insignificant) with dial input, and lag with the joystick (again not an issue to me but I've noticed lag in moving picture to picture in playback and attribute this to file size. The joystick is def. different than other Sony bodies.
Ultimately I'm selling because of my age and kit weight. I'm transitioning to e-mount and ultimately when I can't carry it to mFT and Olympus. Yes it sucks to
get to a point in life where you can afford nice kit but then find yourself to old
to carry it!

I can find no dings, nicks, scratches on the a99ii or the 70-400Gii but there is a small dirt smudge spot on the lens hood. Glass on the 70-400Gii is without internal dust or external scratches. As you know the 70-400Gii was optimized by Sony for
sharpness at 400mm.

Another reason this combo is in such great shape is the LensCoat worn since day one on the lens and an LCD protector on the screen.
Pricing.

I'd like to sell both at once but will price them separately.
a99ii + 70-400Gii $4000
a99ii body $2600
70-400Gii $1600

Yet I offer another package deal including a few more a-mount lenses where you will be purchasing a mint condition Minolta AF 500mm Reflex and getting these other lenses 'thrown' in-

Minolta 500mm AF Reflex (yes yes onion bokeh but it and the Sony AF 500mm
reflex were the only mirror lenses ever made with AF, quality is surprisingly
good but you are eternally stuck at F8 with this mini telescope, but the weight
or lack thereof is amazing....round leather case included with this lens)
Minolta 100-400mm APO (surprisingly great lens for the age and weight)
Minolta 20mm F2.8 (a great lens but the AF in that era was a bit noisy)
Minolta AF 17-35 F2.8 (dated by today's standards but not bad at all IQ wise)
Minolta AF 17-35 F3.5-4.5 (a weak lens even back in the day)
Minolta AF 35-70 F4 (a junker but fun to play with)

Pricing for all of these legacy lenses + a99ii + 70-400Gii is $4600

I'm rating the a99ii + 70-400Gii 9+ only because they are used.
The Minolta 500mm AF Reflex is also 9+
The other lenses are also in great shape-say an overall average of 8.5 but they
are seriously dated in several areas like AF speed, chromatic aberrations, etc, and include no original boxes.

I do have the original box for the a99ii and the 70-400Gii, possibly OEM lens caps but lens caps will be provided.

OEM battery charger included with the a99ii but note that with a silver Sharpie I have written 'a99ii' to make it easier to discern from all the other chargers here.

Shipping- CONUS only
Payment- I suffer shipping/insurance, buyer suffers the PayPal fee. NO gifting.

Dmitri if I lived in this house alone I probably wouldn't sell
I don't have to tell you what this camera can do, I've just got to face
the reality the she-boss reminds me of daily and keep downsizing.

That's an awesome image, Robert! Anyone looking for the only camera that offers both high resolution and high speed, should jump on this deal. Robert is a class act and you can't go wrong dealing with him!

What case from 1-5 do you usually use for shots like these? Also EFCS off?

This camera and lenses sold locally.
Pizdet, I can't answer your question---it was sold before I saw your question....but I was shooting in whatever was default.
