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?

I never mentioned how Sony are perceived, so you are arguing with yourself here   All I am saying is that this is a development announcement with very vague specs, so your comment about Sony's response or lack thereof is a tad premature.

No one would be happier than me if the specs are on the money.
