What seemed out of nowhere, Sony just unveiled a new shooter to its mirrorless full-frame inventory. Introducing the Sony A9: armed w/ damn-near everything you would need in a camera.
Sony may have just killed the high-end DSLR w/ this one.
For starters, it has a full-frame 24.2MP CMOS sensor capable of continuous shooting up to 20fps for up to 241 consecutive RAW photos. The maximum shutter speed goes up to 1/32,000 of a second, you got 693 phase-detect autofocus points, capable of full pixel 4K video (which is actually 6K downscaled to 4K), 5-axis in-body stabilization, dual SD card slots, Ethernet port, a super-sharp Quad-VGA OLED viewfinder w/ 3,686k dots, 3inch touchscreen, and about 2.2x larger battery.
For those of you interested won't have long to wait as it is set to arrive on May 25th here in the US w/ a $4,500 price tag for the body only. Dual SD cards, in-body stabilization, and double the battery life. I think I'm sold. How about you?
