Basically it isn't D850 money @ $3200 USD. Could be cool next to an A9...if you're into that kind of thing.

For weddings it won't replace my A9's but will maybe replace my A7RII that I still have and use occasionally at weddings. Means my A7RII lost at least $500 on the used market. Lol...

What advantages do you see in the A9 over the A7R3 for weddings?

I am interested - been looking for a lower priced camera that has a silent shutter than doesn't have Jello.

Still a bit pricey for me as I don't need the high MP - 24 MP is enough for me - guess I am waiting for the A7 Mk III but really would like Fujifilm to step up with a sensor that doesn't have a rolling shutter problem

Not shooting 150-200gb of pictures per wedding. More AF points.

We will have to wait and see about the silent shooting and no blackout. I LOVE that in my A9's. Since this is the same sensor as before I'm guessing silent mode will be no where close to the A9.

Are those differences worth $1300 over the A7RIII? Not really but since I already have the A9's I'm not going to drop them for this.

Seems like a meh upgrade for this line of work (dual slots notwithstanding) unless there is an A7sII-like low res option.

I rarely use my A7r2 as is for this because 42mp of drunk dancing is just total overkill.

it has a joystick and dual card slots which is a big enough upgrade from mark 2 for me.

I like having one High MP/High DR camera in my wedding kit. Right now thats the fuji GFX for me. I can see possibly moving to this and getting a few thousand $'s back.

Sony is too expensive for me. I would need two kits, four bodies and matching lenses.

To be honest, when those are your requirements, what's not expensive?

I have been loyal to Canon for so long and now all that I see coming out with Nikon and now Sony makes me really want to jump ship. The only worry I have is the crazy menus and usability of the Sony's. I guess it would take some getting used to. That, and using off-camera flash.

They've ticked off a lot of boxes here. Anti-flickr, dual slots, AF joystick, double the battery life, next gen eye-AF.

Is there an mRAW mode?

In addition to the AF joystick, looks like they borrowed Canon's mirrorless trick of using the whole touch screen as a jump focus-point selector when shooting with your eye up to the camera.

I wonder how many MPx is medium raw. 42 is alot for weddings.

Anyone know how well Sony A9 works with adapated Canon/Sigma glass?

Fairly conservative release, I was expecting a 60MP A9 af body with a hiked price but instead they made a mirrorless D850. I'm sure it is a nice camera for sony users but I can't see anyone switching to it from nikon.

The Sigma Art 135mm f1.8 is my most used lens on the A9 for weddings. It's a killer combo using the Metabones adapter. My EF 200mm f2L IS also works great.

I have the same lens! Great to hear that it works perfectly.
