Shouldn't be all that expensive - there are very few pro lenses available to buy. Maybe the extra expense is in stocking up on SD cards for all that 20 fps shooting...

They replaced the big, fast teleprime with Sony's 100-400 interpretation - thus underestimating the price of the switch by about $10k in that alone (assuming that Sony ever produces at big, fast teleprime for the A9 which doesn't require the use of an adapter that reduces framerate to 10 fps and cripples autofocus and costs less than the current A mount lens)...

Indeed, I called them out on that and said the changeover just won't happen with that current lens line-up or lack thereof for sports and wildlife users

I can see some sports photographers adding the A9 to their gear bag for times when they want to shoot in quiet events but they're not going to get them to replace their current gear. That may be all Sony expects to begin with. Just getting sports photographers to view the brand as viable for limited scenarios is a plus for them.
