A9 eye tracking

I have the A9 and love it.

For people shots including my own grandkids, the eye tracking is a very useful feature.  My understanding is eye tracking in the A9 is much improved over the A7rII.  Since grandkid shooting is not landscapes, the versatility, silent electronic shutter, eye tracking, makes it the stronger tool for grandkid shooting imo.

My grandkids are very camera aware.  The electronic shutter with flip screen is great to get shots when they don't realize I'm taking their picture.  This avoids the grandkid 'over smile' problem.

I imagine there will be an A9r version at some point for the non-sports photographers.   If that existed today, I'd say that one.
