It will be interesting to see if the AF will actually work in low light - that might make it the first Sony mirrorless that's suitable for wildlife photography. I personally would have liked to see higher resolution and less emphasis on frames per second.

it seems that there will be two lines, the pro A9 line and the resolution-centered A7 line!

I guess this explains why so many Sony Artisans have been dumping their existing gear...

A few things I hope this fixes but probably won't know until the reviews come out.

1) Long exposure noise problems.

2) Star eater algorithm

3) Faster operation just moving around the camera (less laginess).

Also how is that they were able to do fast burst and no buffering on the A99ii with such a high MP sensor but had to lower it here? Is there something that SLT does that allows this that makes it not possible in mirrorless?

there is also a mechanical shutter:

In addition to itís silent electronic shutter, Sony a9 also has a mechanical focal plane shutter option (with speeds up to 5 FPS) when needed for applications such as flash photography or when shooting under pulsing lights at high shutter speeds.

Very impressive specs and abilities no doubt. Good news also is this will have a trickle down effect with the technology


Yes, that is what I'm most interested in...what trickles into the A7 camera lines.

Don't worry - the way Sony gear depreciates, you'll probably be able to buy one for C$4000 in a few months time.

Really interested in seeing how the sensor performs, both AF performance and low light noise. While it's quite expensive, I was really expecting $6,000-$7,000 range like the 1DXii and D5 series. Good on Sony for putting something out that's CHEAPER than normal for once!

I'm not sure there is a valid complaint coming out of this. This is seriously revolutionary. Even the money is not bad considering the tech involved. Outside the Mpx count I could certainly use one but I won't sell my 42mpx for it. Certainly be the awesome second body to have for me at least.

That's extremely disappointing if true, otherwise Sony knocked this one out of the park.

Sony A-mount lenses will be supported across the full 693 Phase Detection AF Points at up to 10 FPS when used with Sony LA-EA3 Lens Adapter thanks to an upcoming firmware update.

If the electronic shutter truly operates without visible rolling shutter then there's absolutely no need for a fast mechanical shutter since it'll only be used for flash photography.

Glad to see the joystick and EVF improvements, I have to believe those'll make it into the A7III. Hopefully that's announced in the next few months.

Interested to see if the stacked sensor tech hurts DR.

Great looking camera - silent shutter is something I definitely want. But I don't really need 20 fps. And I'd rather have 42mpx than 24mpx. So I'll hold off to see what the new A7rIII offers.... or whatever it's called.

If it's truly a global shutter, then yes. But if you do any indoor sports then a non-global electronic shutter is a non-starter due to light flickering. It's the same with my E-M1ii, even though the rolling shutter effect is negligible it's unusable for indoor sports.
