photog4u: Dual EVF/OVF, IBIS and D5 AF for the win! ;)

@ Rev: Either your misinformed or just not paying close enough attention. Canon and Nikon have both have been profoundly affected by the Sony Alpha (full frame) mirrorless campaign which started back in 2012. Others such as Olympus, Fuji and Panasonic have most certainly had a hand in the DSLR's popularity decline, world-wide. But make not mistake about it, if and when the DSLR starts its death knell, it will have been primarily at the hands of the mirrorless and in particular, Sony full frame Alpha series executioner. That is unless of course, as I stated earlier, the DSLR gets a mirrorless-esk tech infusion with features like dual hybrid EVF/OVF and IBIS among others.

@59 yes on dual hybrid EVF/OVF (and likely to be incorporated into new mirrorless system), maybe on IBIS and if no to D5 AF then pretty damn close ;) If the DSLR is to survive into the next decade, Huge game changing advancements will need to be implemented now or Sony kills it.

It doesn't have a built in flash. Perhaps they've incorporated a duel EVF/OVF feature. Let's hope so...

photog4u: By releasing this impressive marketing short announcing the D850 development, Nikon has committed yet another camera tech faux pas. They should have given their mirrorless development a similar marketing video. That the D850 got Hercules Rising and the mirrorless announcement got a half-ass press release, tells me that they still don't get it ... probably an early indication that the Nikon mirrorless system is going to be disappointing compared to the might Sony Alpha series.

@ blurry: The only thing wrong with the online photography community is that there are too many thin skinned fanboys unable to process another's opinion without becoming pugnacious. It's just an opinion blurry; don't get your panties in wad ;)

If Leica could somehow figure how to get portrait rendering (shallow DOF) out of a pancake zoom on the TL2 AND make it a cell phone to boot, I'd buy in all the way. I won't get my hope's up ... ;)

Valterj: Finally good news from Nikon!

I hope Nikon develop top quality mirrorless cameras like Sony.

Let's wait...

Better be announced this year or Sony will crush their entry with an A7RIII or A9R. It's difficult to play catch up against Sony's tech machine ... and they have a 5 year head start...

If Nikon so much as blinks when it comes to IQ with this new mirrorless system in order to protect their DSLR sales, this endeavor will fail miserably IMHO. If, on the other hand they don't pull any punches, we should expect and outstanding mirrorless camera.

photog4u: It's not a fanboy thing, I'll buy ANY great camera. It's just that Pentax, Sony, Panasonic and Olympus are building cameras with so many interesting and useful features that announcements like this one seem vanilla to me.

@Ernest: They are only subjective if you've been in a coma for the last five years. Now that you are awake, check out what two grand will buy you today in the way of camera tech today ;)

Does the A9 AF work as well, as fast, as accurate with 3rd party lenses like Zeiss Batis?

mick232: Same score as D5 and 1DXm2. I guess DPR didn't want to step on anyone's toe.

@ mick232: Nonsense. If the A9 had the dynamic range and resolution of the A7RII in addition to all of that speed and accuracy, it would have scored 95 Gold ;)

In reply to:

nametaken: Does "Improves iris function" mean the iris will open all the way when acquiring focus in AF-C between shots instead of remaining stopped down to the taking aperture?

Rishi: Slightly off topic, I'm shooting with a Zeiss Batis 85mm F1.8 on the A9. Subject tracking is unimpressive compared to the results I've seen here. Is it possible that non-Sony lens is to blame?

In reply to:

photog4u: Joy-stick is unusable which in my opinion renders the camera useless. Focus point is impossible to see in the EVF. Lenses are tired especially when compared with their e-mount brethren and Sony doesn't appear to be too keen on refreshing them any time soon. I wanted to like this camera as it ticked all the boxes for me, at least on paper. Once I got it in my hands however, the joy-stick and focus point issues were an immediate buzz-kill. A9 it is.

@Dan Vincent: I am happy to report, having received my A9 today, that it's joystick feature is extremely well implemented and NOTHING EVEN CLOSE to the A99 II. It is responsive and accepts tactile input commands without hesitation...haptics are pleasing and intuitive. I do thank you for the A99 II joystick tutorial but sorry that thing is horrible IMHO. The are many features in and around a new camera that I am more than willing to endure a reasonable learning curve, the joystick is not one of them. For me, the joystick is a NO COMPROMISE feature and must work perfectly and intuitively right out of the box.

photog4u: Dear Santa: This Christmas please bring me a Fujikon mirrorless D500 with a big bright blackout free EVF and 5 axis IBIS. Oh and it should work with all of my existing Nikon lenses. Feliz Navidad!

@ Gabs: I would prefer a Sonikon version but at present, it is Fuji rumored to be in the catbird seat ;)
