Breaking news: A9 Banding Issues.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv1JCHfXDdY

This will get another 2000+ comments for Dpreview if they use it.

Reactive: I can't see the relevance of this article. If you are already a professional Sony user then you are happy making a living using their own lenses, and you will therefore wait for a big Sony 300mm f2 if you need that sort of length+performance. If you are already a Canikon pro drooling over the a9's 'headline' speed (but listen to all those caveats in the video!) then you are definitely not going to switch to Sony until the necessary lenses become available. Either way, the article seems like a lot of whining that trying to mix different manufacturers' technology doesn't work too well; why should it? The only conclusion is that Sony need to pull their finger out and release some very expensive glass very quickly.

From what I've learnt in this forum many people say it is only Sony users who need Canon glasses as Sony lack of glasses, interesting to know that it is also the Canon pro users need Sony bodies.

dccdp: I'm sure Canon cameras do not fall short with Sony lenses.

Neither does Sony cameras but the adapters.

It is by chance, you can do the same test on another D500 and it may fail, same thing applied to other brands like Sony and Canon.

Jesse_Just_Him: How about "Canon lenses falls short on Sony A9"

Try their EF lenses to the M you will get the answer.

Edmond Leung: Only two ways for Sony going to pro market:
1. Collaborate with Canon / Nikon to share their lens making technologies; or
2. Hire the people from Canon / Nikon; but too difficult for Sony to work iit out in Japan.
Without the above actions, Sony will still remain in the second tier market segment.

4. Collaborate with Sigma.

3. Buy up Nikon as it is a much smaller and dying company.

Edmond Leung: In this virtual era, A-Sign seems very successful to attract the eyeballs of other audience. Perhaps he/she is also creative in other area. Regardless the approach is good or bad, it makes dpreview more attractive to the new generations. New generations are essential to keep those giant companies (Canon, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic....) to surive.

I am sure he would respond to you.

dkeller: Isn't this a problem with the adaptors not the camera. After all this isn't what this camera was designed to do and Sony certainly isn't responsible for Metabones or Sigma issues.

Let's face it, everything is Sony's false and to blame these days.

In reply to:

CaPi: Is anyone really surprised by these findings?
It's important to verify..
but why do we see hundreds of posts?

Well said, may be later another findings show that some third party flashes or anything that can attach to the A9 don't work as well as the A9's native accessories would make a great chance to bash the A9 not being a professional class camera.

This article reminds me putting EF PRO lenses via EF-EOS M adapter that slows down the native EOS M AF system.

In reply to:

Vivid1: I think this is why this camera is seen by most pros as nothing more than a curious gadget at the moment. It has been said before - AF can only really be tested on wide aperture 300mm and up. On shorter lenses it's easy. So the useability of 20fps, which I see as this camera's main claim to fame, is very limited if it cant focus with long lenses.

You didn't read the article, did you?

In reply to:

amateurphotographer: Although the A9 appears to be a ground breaking camera. For those requiring long lenses - wildlife and sports photographers. If Sony doesn't get their long lenses out soon, or adapters up to speed, then the likes of Canon and Nikon can catch up. My guess (crystal ball) is that Canon and Nikon within the year will come out with an equiv A9, and Sony wouldn't have released a 300/400f2.8, 500/600 f4 lenses. So far the adapters are more compatible with canon lenses, rather than Nikon. So those Canon users could change camps. For me as a long lens Nikon user, not cost effective yet, as the adapters for Nikon lenses appear to be not that well developed yet.

Very nice crystal balls, do they also see Sigma may release tele Pro glasses for the E mount to solve this problem by the way?

Certainly ain't Pro class lenses by any stretch of the imagination, put a Sony 300mm would beat the S out of this 300mm.

ABM Barry: Certainly Isn't a Pro class camera by any stretch of the imagination, .. Just the usual Sony false claims! ........

Also both cameras' focus points only cover a tiny area in the middle.

Not sure about Nikon has the needed lenses already...
