Donnie G: Sony wants to be regarded as a full line FF camera maker. That requires having a sports oriented body that pros trust to get the job done. I'm convinced that they will get there eventually, just not with this current A9. The A9 mk IV should be available in time for the 2020 Olympics and that is most likely when we'll see a couple of Sony shooters working the sidelines along with the Canon and Nikon sports shooters. 😎

Donnie, you are probably right about 2020. At the moment a test of best Sony sports shooter with a9. 70-200 G, Nikon shooter with ,D5, 70-200 E, Canon shooter with 1DX mkII, 70-200 mkII shooting same event (not staged) side by side could be interesting.
There are a ton of Sports and Events which do not need long glass and most Sports Shooters have an 70-200 f2.8 in their bag. You could even throw a 24-70 2.8 into the mix. Not sure this will happen .
