New Competition for Sony A1, the Nikon Z9

It is nice to see competition, and nice to see that Nikon is making a real effort to be a leader in mirrorless FF, and I hope that the newly announced Nikon Z9, with no mechanical shutter, pushes Sony and Canon to keep upping their game. Very impressive specs at a price lower than the A1. I like the technology advances in the Z9, but have no personal interest in, or need for, the large body with two grips, and Sony is still way ahead in lens selection.

Honestly, I have no pressing need or use case for cameras like the A1 or Z9, but I hope that some of the technology in them can trickle down to less expensive models with lower resolution, or even to the RX100 or RX10 line.
