With the a9 not the D750 of mirrorless we were hoping for, I stopped thinking about Sony for a bit. Then, this ...

h ttps://petapixel.com/2017/05/17/sony-unveils-2-new-zoom-lenses-12-24mm-f4-g-16-35mm-f2-8-gm/

That 2.8 clocks in at 566 grams, versus 765 for Canon's otherwise excellent L III. Yikes.

Exactly, the price point of bodies and lenses is out of reach for me to fill two kits for two photographers.

That's all I shot with last year with a pair of A7RII's. The A9 looks perfect and I have two on order. Hopefully they will both ship next week.

That's a lot of coin. Why are you switching?

Mostly for the dual cards but the silent shutter, faster and lower light AF and lower megapixels are nice.

I'm not. Though if Sony starts doing $1k off sales, I may not be able to resist an RX1rII. I'm really happy with my work cameras, but my lightweight pocket setup just makes me angry most of the time.

I still can't shake the utopian idea of a silent shutter (and a 50 I look forward to shooting with).

My gut tells me Team C and N might be a little closer to pro mirrorless.

Still waiting on an A7III

My gut feeling is that the first "pro" mirrorless body from Canon will be in a 1DX factor.

The absolute silent A9 and the dual cards has me ready to go. After picking up the 85 FE and being exceptionally impressed with it's AF abilities on the A7II, I am ready to go all in. Only concern is the weather-sealing and ruggedness of the A9.

It's $6,900 Canadian. Am I missing the ROI?

A totally silent shutter is cool and all, but I haven't been in a situation where the silent shutter on my 5D3/4 wasn't quite enough.

Thankfully (well..kind of?) Sony tends to not hold value very well on their bodies, presumably because their tech advances tend to move pretty quick and outdate their old stuff pretty significantly. For me, the weight loss of the Canon 5D3/4 + L prime to a Sony body and 85FE is really significant, and if I can do it to a dual card body so I dont have to sweat backups on site, it's worth it to me. Not $7k worth it, but worth it after the first significant price cut.

For the record, my A7II images are just awesome, but the ruggedness is balls. The rubber grip started melting off due to light use, the paint wears off when you look at it, not to mention the batteries are far too underpowered.

Team C is for sure (possibly late 2017 early 18) only thing from team N right now as far as we know is the sound of crickets. I'm just afraid it will take either one of them years to catch up with Sony and Fuji right now who are paving the way.

Does your 5D4 give you all the other benefits of a mirrorless camera?

It's more about he fact that Canikon haven't embraced mirrorless and Sony has now brought put a body that seems to tick most pf the boxes for pro wedding use with a matching set of stellar lenses.

A current silent shutter is only cool until you need a f'ash to fire. We're a generation or so away from a true global shutter.
