Re: Anyone thinking of trading their A9 for the A7Riv?

Yeah, no sports or BIF here. Just people. I shoot events and environmental portraits, so the silent shooting in almost any lighting is everything to me because people forget I'm shooting because they don't hear a shutter, so they behave much more naturally. And the speed of the electronic shutter means no worrying about motion blur. I love the super fast Eye AF too. Will sometimes shoot 20fps if I see a big moment coming, but it wasn't what sold me on the A9. I'm more than willing to sacrifice DR and resolution for these benefits because my keeper rate has skyrocketed.

It's great to have so many options with cameras today. RIV adds another great option.
