Not even close. No black out free shooting and a rather bland predictable upgrade list. Reminds me of the cpu upgrades. (Boring)

I’m waiting at least for the a9ii assuming it’s the a9 plus 36 meg res sensor, higher dr, higher res evf, higher res rear screen, tethering via usb-c etc but even that will likely come across quite incremental. This would to me offer a great balance and would offer enough pixels for me whilst keeping the magical black out free immediate focus capabilities of the a9.

If I dream I’d love a top panel lcd instead of a zillion dials to make the interface more modern and a beautiful rear screen touch screen interface with speed and focusing ability.

I don’t even mind paying a premium for it, so I’m hoping Sony create the a9 as a genuine flagship that leads the way.

Agree, a9ii is what would tempt me with 36mp, black out free higher res EVF, and i wouldn't even care if they dropped the 20fps down to 15 as long as mp went up to 36. Better weather sealing would also be a must. GPS would be nice but not a must. lock on the exposure dial would be much appreciated (and expected since they put it on A7r iv)
