I use the A9II as my main camera, would an A9 1 make sense as a backup? Even though it has worse DR, different ergonomics and worse mechanical shutter it can be found for pretty cheap now! And afaik the af should be pretty similar in stickiness.

It would be possible, but I really don’t like the location of the lock button for the left dial on the A9 - I;ve seen two A9 bodies where it had been damaged, too.

If you are not in a big hurry, I’d wait and save a bit more, planning to get an A9III next year and use the A9II as backup to that…
