A9 to A9II - Mechanical shutter experience?

Howdy all,

To set the scene, I'm at a point where my cost of change from the A9's to A9II's is probably as low as it's going to get, so wondered if anyone has made the change.

I'm a wedding photographer, and my only criticisms sit with the mechanical shutter;

  1. The sound. Trivial I know, but it sounds daft. People notice it.
  2. The speed. The lag isn't huge, but there is a lag.
  3. The flash. More of a 2a, the flash performance isn't great

I wondered if anyone has made the move, and has any comments around improvements in these areas?

The anti flicker with mechanical shutter also should be a help, but I'm assuming that works as I expect it should.

Many thanks!
