Don't want to start a p*****g contest
3

I've always been a Canon user and will probably continue what with my present collection of L lenses. That said, I went out with a friend of mine who's a keen birder yesterday. He was using a Sony Alpha 9 with a 100-400mm zoom. I had my old 5D2 with 100-400mm MkII zoom. I'm not a birder but went along for a day out.

I suppose Sony would always trade on it's long history with video cameras so the fact that the Alpha 9 can shoot an insane 20 fps for stills might not come as much of a surprise.  Have to say I was impressed at the fact that it can focus track at this rate of fire. If I was more interested in BIF or sports this would be a camera I would try out.  Is Canon getting left behind in the mirrorless market?
