A9 - overheating?

Hi folks,

I received my A9 yesterday and spent an hour in the park this morning with it (comparing its performance to my Olympus E-M1 Mark II).

I have to say that I love the way the A9 handles. And my review of the pics on the LCD suggests great IQ (I was using the new Sony 85 f/1.8 and the Sigma 50-100).

But one unnerving thing was that the high temp warning came on. I was admittedly in the sun most of the time but it's only around 65 degrees today in NJ. I did have the camera on and shooting probably for 40-45 minutes nonstop. (No video, by the way.)

I set the sleep timer to 10 seconds and that seemed to help. But this worries me a bit for summer/warm weather shooting.

Anyone else see any overheating?
