As in, bothered to produce a bigger upgrade spec on the A9mk2!!

BOth the D6/1dx3 are a let down spec-wise!

I cant blame sony for just doing small updates on it as they probably knew the 1x3/d6 would barely be a upgrade to the previous version of those cameras(which the original A9 already blew away)

You must have missed the R5 announcement today.

A7R3-ish resolution


8K video.

If Sony knew the D6/1DX3 were coming, how didn't they see this, and why didn't they counter it?

(A: They couldn't, so they rushed the A9M2 out to get people to commit before R5 specs hit the street).

Or they know that the headline specs (other than resolution) are probably hyped a tad.

Whenever a new Sony body comes out with crazy headline specs it's a celebration. So why is it "overhyped" when Canon does it?

Maybe because Sony has a history of radical innovation, with successive releases breaking new ground. They don't get everything right, but they've nevertheless managed to set the FF camera industry on its ear.

Canon, at least in recent years has a history of phoning in "meh" releases and milking (and not "MILCing") existing tech - coupled with some big promises that haven't amounted to much. Let's hope it's different this time, but a degree of skepticism is understandable.
