A9 III 50mb - will you keep your a7rIV?

The rumors are a new A9 III with a new 50mp sensor, A7sIII EVF and menus along with other improvements.

I have not picked up my A9 in a year until earlier this week for an air show and the AF tracking is amazing but 24mp a real let down after using 61mp for so long now.

I think the reverse will be true when the new A9 comes ou.t I will gladly give up 11mp for the advantages of a new A9. Providing the buffer clears much faster than the A9 does now.

Obviously a 80 to 100mp RV is not far behind and I am sure I will get one but 50mp seem like enough other than when using APS-C crop mode which is a huge plus or the ability to do same in post.

I can see a lot of people opting for two A9's instead of pairing it with a a7rV myself except that a 80 to 100mp a7rV cannot be far behind. I would assume a V would AF as good as the orginal A9 and the ability to end up with mid 30 to 40mp APS-C crops is exciting also.

If they can get improve the low light, noise and high ISO and buffer fixed I will be a happy boy.

I would like to see focus stacking, focus bracketing, in-camera pixel shift, new menus, the a7sIII EVF and ease of sending images to smartphone and other improvements also.
