Using the A9's full frame rate or electronic shutter you will be shooting in only 12 bit, factor that in!

factor in something that probably can't be distinguished?

I used 12 bit with the the poor buffer of the D7100 and didn't notice much difference, but Sony fans complained about it, so Sony changed it to 14 bit!

Other than that and the shortfall of long sports/nature bright lenses, I think there is a lot of fun to be had with the A9, 20 Fps and fast action AF, there's no doubt it's the future of photography!

yeah, seems like a spec-sheet-only concern.

I looked at the above link, and concluded there's not much chance of encountering a real world situation where 14 bit was going to:

1) be noticeable compared to 12, and

2) result in salvaging a useable shot compared to 12
