Neither of them had such a lens.

straylightrun: Now only if they could stick the guts of Sony mirrorless camera into the ergonomic shell of a Canon body. It would literally be the perfect camera.

I'd take the guts of the a9 in an A9 body over an X-T2 body or Canon body :)

skanter: Why get this instead if the Sony 35mm 1.8, an excellent lens?

If it was FF, it would have been excellent ;)

stevo23: Seems that the D5 had a drop in DR as well?

@vscd " It seems an old Canon 1DXM2 could beat this Sony easily."

it seems you are wrong:

DFPanno: Not sure what "sensor height" on the Y axis means.

"hauteur"
Vertical height of the sensor

MSTR Photography: Good article on the basics of shutter rates and flash sync. My question is how can I get a shutter speed of 1/500th while using a studio strobe for an action shot?

Leaf shutter,
or high speed "stoboscopic" strobe, to use a focal plane shutter above its sync. speed.
But if you light your action with a studio strobe in a studio, and that the strobe is the main source, just select the sync speed, and the shorter duration of the flash will freeze the action.
High speed sync is usefull outside, for instance on a sunny day, and shooting aroud f2 (though you can use a ND filter to halp)

CaPi: I wonder what he uses on the Sony.. FF lenses tend to be intimidating no matter what you use..

aris14: I 'd like this hands-on to give me a hint on how they managed the weight reduction.

"The 16-35mm f2.8 on the other hand is designed for performance and so size takes a backseat"
is there any smaller-lighter 16-35 f2.8 ?

yiannispreview: Many options & choices missing.
One example: (30mm equivalent)
Nikon D5500 with Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5 SL-II

No, the tittle is:
"Can you build a cheaper X100 with a mirrorless body and pancake lens?"

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (503 comments in total)

No comparaison of
- DR at low Iso
- Tonal range at low Iso
- Banding os the electronic chutters in non tungsten artificial light (Fluorescent, Led ...)
if you have to use the mecanical shuter you slow down to the prehistoric 5fps as they wrote, And the EVF to act as low motion picture with the mecanical chutter as on A7 series?

- High ISO downsample to 24 MPx

zodiacfml: Smartphone sensor. Plenty options for the same price.

I don't understand what you follow, so perhaps you don't understand my retoric ?
I just say that it is not the same thing that the camera of a smartphone, and that I didn't know the plenty of option the OP was speaking,
But now I know one (Sony HX90V above even a better option for me with its EVF)
Never say it is better than a dslr.

In reply to:

mosc: I don't really understand what you're trying to say here DPR. The A7Rm2 alone has this issue? It essentially front focuses when using AF on a large aperture?

They wrote exactly the contrary:

"On an a7R II, this lens focuses wide open, quickly and accurately."

and
"Oddly, the same doesn't hold true on other Sony bodies: the lens focuses stopped down at the shooting aperture on an a7 II, a7S, and a6300/6500. Oddly, this sometimes leads to slight front-focus at smaller apertures on those cameras"

and also:
"though it's not a huge deal as the focus shift is often masked by the increased depth-of-field."
;)
