The A9 has excellent low light performance, it’s one of the reasons that I love the camera.

Even when using narrow apertures?

It depends on how low light and how narrow aperture. I have found that I had to widen the aperture at times so that the AF can work reliably in low light. Both A9 and A9II can AF down to -3 EV. Sony may need to up the tech. According to Canon's website, their EOS R can go down to -6 EV.
