I like the Bokeh. There are times, when I may want the 'traditional' bokeh look. But for day time outdoor portrait photography, I like this bokeh.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (766 comments in total)

I have found this thread rather amusing. The Canikon people saying no way and the Sony people saying, absolutely. I think when the A7 first came out... nobody, including Sony thought it would be as successful as it has been. It has for sometime been my opinion that putting the technology on the sensor as Sony is doing will eventually win over the SLR flopping mirror technology. The A9 is the first glimpse of that reality.

The fact that you can buy the camera for nearly $2k less than the competition and that $2k can nearly buy another lens. Plus, for your "less important" speed lenses, you will be able to adopt. The hurdle isn't quite as big as it could be. How well the adopted lenses work remains to be seen, but they work better than many would have you believe.

It will certainly be interesting as to how this technology trickles down to the pedestrian A7 series or less expensive A9 as the inertia will continue to change, just as the A7 changed the inertia.

J. Qian: The beginning of the end for the DSLRs?

I love my NEX 5N…. Yes it would be better with an EVF and maybe someday I will buy it. Or, I'll get a 7 when it becomes $600. Part of the marketing of a 'Pro' is the big camera. It sets them apart. Although I think that someday, even the pro will have an EVF, but that is double digit years away anyway.
