I have come across a too-good-to-pass deal on a very nice A9 (2000€). That and the excitement around the announcement of the 70-200 GM II made me pull the trigger.

You should have waited for the Z9 launch, it’s looking like a breakthrough camera in all aspects, even though it will likely take some time to get one and price is likely to be 3x what you paid for the used a9. Good luck!

If I had been in the O/P's shoes the 70-200 f2.8 GM II may have also tipped the scale for me: the weight of the Canon with the IQ of the Nikon. Nice!
