$4500, of course!

at leas ask for $7000, so you can cover cost of 100-400 ;) kidneys go for more ;)

Well, considering that it's competing with the 1DXII and the Nikon D5, it's a bargain.

I balked at the price as well till i remembered that...

But Sony's pro service is still meh if i remember right?

I really like it, albeit im honeslty more interested in an A7 III at this point with the IBIS

Does the A9 use the same lenses as the A7SII?

Thanks.

20fps? Jesus Christ that's like filming.

The a7r3 should be interesting.

Ive been waiting with cash in the bank for the 6dm2 but its probably better to wait for the a7r3.

Sony is looking like the not so distant future of photography.

Canon and Nikon better get their stuff together because their future is looking dim.

Canon and Nikon of today reminds me of Polaroid and Kodak of the past... stuck in their old ways ignoring the market... and when they finally woke up it was to late... and look where Polaroid and Kodak is now..

Here is my prediction...

for now there won't be A7III and A7RIII, not for at least another few years.
A7II and A7RII will continue like A6000 and A6300, there is nothing wrong A7II and A7RII, they will continue selling them for another 2-4 years.

This year we will see A9R announcement

Interesting. The camera may be terrific but the video points out a major issue for some, comfort in the hand. Apparently the grip is too close to the lens barrel.

.
A new flagship camera announced by one of the world's top camera manufacturers, and after one day there are only 2 pages of posts on its announcement thread? That is strange!

I thought that this forum was not supposed to be Canon-centric anymore, but clearly there is still a bias toward Canon when it comes to forum activity. What does Sony have to do to get just as much attention as Canon gets here on POTN?

They are talking about it a lot in the Sony A7 lounge thread.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.

Could you please post a link to that?
I went to The Lounge and couldn't find it there.

It seems odd that if you want to read a lot of POTN discussion about a Sony A9 you need to go to Sony A7 thread. That doesn't seem logical to me.

Now that Sony has the "action" camera, it's time for a 400 f/2.8 to released.

But before people go investing tens of thousands of dollars in Sony glass, they need to know that they can trust Sony to keep the same mount configuration for years and years and years to come. . Nobody spending 20 or 30 grand on a collection of lenses is going to be satisfied using adaptors.

Whether or not this body will overtake Canon or Nikon on the professional level is iffy at this point. I read the same prognostication for the A7r II when it first came out, and that didn't happen. There are lots of factors that go into choosing a professional camera

Yeah, what you said.
