Sony A9II release next month
1

Well, it seems almost certain the announcement is Oct 24 -26 --- for about $5K US.

Highly likely is 36mp stacked sensor & 20 fps with the A7R4 grip.....

Beyond that ... ????

Is it time to speculate what's new?

i hope they have a new processor and higher fps with the new mech shutter. even better af.

i wish for lossless raw compression, intuitive touch UI, larger better rear screen, and a few things more what will not be in there.

I would expect the EVF that the A7R iv has.

Why do you want to use the mechanical shutter?

I am looking forward to a full global shutter and no mechanical shutter at all.

if they give us global shutter, then i will be good without the mech shutter as well.

i just think thats not gonna happen this October.

Re: Sony A9II release next month

Most likely an updated sensor and similar performance. I wonder if they can tweak the AF further or is what has been recently released the best they have?

I would not expect revolutionary improvements. But if they did manage a global shutter that would be a big deal.

I am still just hoping for firmware 6.0 for my A9 which I plan on keeping. A7RIV and A9 gives me everything I need.

I'm thinking there will be faster fps when in APS-C mode, something like 25-30fps
