Sony A9 review from B&H "But there were always those niggly caveats- not as sharp, less dynamic range, noise in the shadows. But putting that out of my mind, I gulped hard and plopped down $5k for the a9, grip, and battery. B&H put it in my hands in 24hours! Five Steps Forward: the focus is like a bullet. It can see eyes and faces everywhere. The joystick is great, but using the touch screen to set the focus point is even greater. Such a huge improvement over the a7rii. Silent shutter- be still my heart. What a joy to use... Two Steps Back: the image quality just isn't there. My testing- much less sharp, more noise particularly in the shadows. No way can I make excuses on such an expensive camera. In case anyone is wondering, I'm using good lenses: 24-70 GM and Zeiss 55/1.8. I Certainly can't fault Sony because they told us what this camera is for. I found very quickly that I don't need the super high frame rate. So this puppy has to go back which makes me sad. But now I can dream of the a7riii/a9r that will have these wonderful features and great IQ with the speed of my Prius, not a Lamborghini. I hope this help others in their $5k decision."
