Really wished this was the A7III announcement
The tech looks amazing, it's just priced out of my range. I'm sure there's lots of rich guys out there who'll buy this to take photos of ducks at 20fps.
Yes, I'm in your boat (though I'd like to be in the latter "rich and take bursts of ducks at 20fps" boat too). I am really looking forward an a7iii with a more palatable price, with the fun AF of the a6500 or this a9 device. I want to replace my worker bee a7 with a metabones-able/TAP af system and the uber low light qualities of the new gen sonys. Indeed, the sony low light advances from a few years ago are why I now shoot sony for work in the first place. The a7rii is great, but still too pricy for all the things I don't want or need.
Seeing this a9, I feel confident the a7iii will tick all the boxes for me, both for birding and gala/event gigs (excluding now the increasing trend in price- the a7ii still has a reasonable price point, lets keep it there...). I agree, Sony is doing a good job keeping up with the consumers and folks who use these tools every day. I feel like it was last week I had an itsy bitsy nex-c3 in my hand and thinking, "make this FF, add like 10 more buttons and 3 more dials and I will sell all my DSLR gear"... Good show, bravo!
