Nikoncanonfan: For goodness sake buy the brand lens for your new expensive camera if you can't afford it don't bother switching in the first place it's pathetic I can't believe the market for adaptors if you're canon and like the a9 just wait till next year when canon starts upgrading their DSLR line to mirrorless that's what I'm doing. Not even interested in the 6d mk2 it will be obsolete with the upcoming range

No Sony 400 f2.8 for goodness sake.

PhotoKhan: It's nothing short of amazing how people who seem to have a problem with renting software (...a direct, clear cut, quid-pro-quo arrangement where I, for example, spend less daily than I spend on coffee...) and, yet, seemed to not have a problem whatsoever in the days where the self-contained software they purchased was not actually theirs, as per EULAs.

T5.6 wide open? This is a high ISO lens. No thanks.

Interesting technology, but not something I would be interested in, either creating or viewing. This tech could take bad home movies to a while new level.

" the increased average selling price of fixed lens cameras can only be good news"
Not for us customers.

zavart: I have a strange feeling that all these comparisons of Sony a9 to Canon or Nikon SLR are akin to comparing first LCD monitors to CRT monitors. Yes, sure at first LCD were inferior but the problem for CRT was that LCD technology had all the future, evolution and time in front of them while for CRT this was really the end of the line :(

Exactly. I'm not in the market for a Sony but I do think pro mirrorless is coming to Nikon and Canon at some point. I'm not that dazzled by the Sony image quality but I am impressed by the AF tracking and eye focus.

Absolutic: Dpreview editors. Tony Northrop in his video review says that A9 only maintains 20 frames per second when the camera is NOT focusing. When camera needs to adjust focus between shots (which is to me definition of CAF) the AF speed falls to 10-15 frames per second. Can you confirm or deny Tony's findings? That's huge!!!!!

Full AF/AE tracking at 20 fps and no view finder blackout.

The new batteries are $80 each and no external charger in the box. Figure 4 batteries at least to match up with a 1DX II or D5 and two chargers because you have a lot of batteries to recharge each night. Many of us with Canon glass would buy the adapter - the price is now over $5500.

Foxy2012: I love how Canon serendipitously released their C-log firmware upgrade for the 5Div.

(Not sure if "serendipitously" is a real word.)

Surreptitiously.

greenieadi: I 'm surprised and amzed at most of the negative or positives comments. The A9 had been launched and previewed only in the last 2 days and by a handful of people but most seems to talk trash as if they have tried it before.

I wonder how someone can, by looking at images of the camera and reading the specs, conclude it is trash.

I like innovation and Sony is pushing other brands to innovate.

We are in the digital age. A belated welcome.

One might argue about the lack of lenses from Sony, but it's a matter of time. Those camera brands where there once too, so I can't be bothered with that argument.

Sony e-mount can adapt other brands lenses, at least.

It's human nature to resist to change, but I've made my peace.

People like to speculate. Can you make peace with that?
Time will tell if this is a successful camera.

Good camera, like it, very capable, but... not enough to make me change systems. What I have works great.

In reply to:

(unknown member): How bad will the rolling shutter be?
Most A7 series were pretty lousy, some 24MP versions measuring over 30ms. The A6300 was 39ms.

And this is bothersome: Electronic shutter mode. At apertures smaller than F11 (F-numbers higher than F11), focus will not track the subject and focus points will be fixed on the first frame.

Who wants to focus tract at f16?
