Nick Brundle - Photography: Rather expensive for a sports camera that can only continuous focus at 5 fps with long lenses. I guess they forgot to mention that when they released the camera.

Nick Bungled on this one. :P

I'm confused. What's not to like about the last portrait?

patrocal: Surprise.... surprise. Reports are coming in that the A9 is overheating. DSLR killing canceled! But you just wait until the next Sony camera. THAT one will certainly kill all DSLRs.

All I've heard of is Overheated disgruntled Canonians. ;)

Chris Yates: No offense to Rishi, but if Rishi can shoot like this with the Sony A9, anyone can. Look out Canon at the next Olys.

In that case, Nikon won't either.

Bravo Canon. This is the best you can do while Sony eats your lunch. And lunch time was 5 years ago.

The death knell for Canon and Nikon has been rung. Well, if not yet, then with the upcoming (and relatively more affordable) A7 series for sure.

Chris Yates: Welcome to the Golden State. Even having placed everything in the trunk and completely hidden, someone broke into our rental car trunk with a crowbar and stole some all our stuff and trashed the car for fun in San Francisco.

We were staying at Hotel Zephyr. Although the robbery did not occur at the hotel, it was somewhere close by. cannot remember where. When we called the cops, it was like "Oh well". Fortunately, I didn't lose any camera equipment. But GPS, clothes, radar detector,, cooler, etc all gone.

Am I the only one tired of manufacturers not disclosing pricing when releasing new products, when each product was developed with a budget and a target price?

Chris Yates: Seriously, the 135mm lens needs in-lens optical stabilization to set it apart from similar offerings from Zeiss, Canon and Nikon. Otherwise, it begs to be adapted to a Sony A7 body.

@Badi, tell that to Canon
