I wish you all the best with your A9 and lens acquisition.  I have a feeling you'll be very happy.

Your post is yet another example of why Nikon needs to hurry up and get it right.  The question is whether it is too late for Nikon to recover (from what I consider a serious management misjudegement/mistake with mirrorless) and ever regain the #2 position.  I suspect it is.  I can only guess where Nikon would be today if they had made the Sony decision years ago that mirrorless was going to be the future.

This is also why I am very optimistic that the Z9 is going to be amazing and that Nikon will quickly trickle down the technology into cheaper models.
