Pixel shift isn’t as useful as you might imagine.

It also doesn’t really make sense for a camera that is meant more for capturing moving subjects. Unless you’re shooting taxidermy I suppose.

Actually I'll find it quite useful when shooting products in studio (yes I do it often with the A9) and mostly because it will allow the camera to sync flash with fully electronic shutter..

wait.... What?? How do you do that?? I've done several photoshoots with the a9 and when I forgot that it was in electronic shutter mode, it wouldn't fire my lights

That's exactly the point! Now you can't with the A9..but with the A7RIII with pixel shift enabled you can fire a flash with full electronic shutter and that's the main reason I hope they will implement that function in A9 too!
