What is a SG$1000 rebate?

I used to own a Sony a7r3 and after renting the a9 for 5 days, I was convinced that I need to sell the a7r3. For me, I shoot a mixture of dogs and street photography.

The main advantages for the a9 would be the 20 fps which allows me to get the decisive moment in both dogs and street photography, and more importantly, the almost non-existent rolling shutter which I experienced a lot on the a7r3. The number of worthy keepers just increased almost 3 folds!

I do find the colours to be slightly better on the a7r3 than the a9, but sometimes the 42MP helps, but nothing that a tighter frame will help in solving that issue.

The push came when the a9 was sold new at a SG$1000 rebate, closing the difference in selling the a7r3 and topping up for the a9.

Took the a9 for a shoot and so far no regrets.

Now, what improvements will it take for one to move on from a Sony a9?

Sony a92 / Sony a9r ?

About USD $750 discount for the Sony a9
