Opinion:I've joined the A7RIII the A9 and I can't stop shooting anymore, it's a beauty to take naturalistic photos with this body, combined with the 400 f2.8 is a missile like Af , burst shots 20 frames are not wrong the flights of the subjects only neo is that you find yourself the most In a moment you have to opt for a cut from 64 to 128. the batteries last or an infinity even in the cold , the final file is a blast to put in place the estate to the iso is fantastic what else you can say !!
Pros:Light, gust, AF speed, high ISO hold, batteries
Cons:Comparison to the RIV that I own the handle that does not drive me crazy, but with the grip resolves, slower in the reflexes when turning on and ready to shoot, double slot snot UHSII otherwise I do not know
Opinion:I wonder why they didn't call it A10, that's the vote I give them. Beaten aside, I come from over 10 years of Nikon, and my last reflex was a D5 so top of the range. I switched to Sony because neither Canikon house wakeup to do a mirrorless with these features and I didn't want to wait anymore. I just say that I have never tried it before buying it obviously I informed myself by reading a lot of reviews and opinions on forums but on the operating side I threw myself a little blind. My first outing was to make the martin that dived without even reading the manual, look at my galleries will not be works of art but the hook that has this machine in AF is stunning. The burst then from 20fps in electronic without blackout is really super, I also used the RIV but with the blackout obviously it is not the same thing. The menu is actually not as easy as Nikon you have to like all things read the manual and take our hand. I was afraid of batteries, when the D5 had infinite range, well with two batteries that weigh less than a battery of a reflex flagship, I make 1500-2000 shots so more than enough. The grip without the grip, for me that I have quite big hands, would be really difficult, on the RIV for example is already much better the grip has improved by far. On the other downside they could put the double UHS-II slot did not cost him anything and would certainly have been very useful. I took pictures of 20,000 iso that with topaz are photos as at 3200iso so also from this side test passed, other positive side READ READ READ MORE, this is the biggest strength of this system its lenses are half the weight compared to reflex is tut another life now I can take them anywhere.
Opinion:9 and I'm! Eh, I know, I've busted: the a9 is high indeed. I finally found my ultimate camera. The magic box. He's got everything I could wish for. It makes me feel calm, master of the situation, focused. For the Street is the best! An electronic shutter without rolling. An autofocus with the grip of a molosso: awesome, that if you don't try it you don't believe it. A really endless burst, a bottomless buffer. With the fact that I also own the a7rII already for a few years, I immediately became familiar with the a9 which has the touch screen, which I felt so much needed because it allows me to change the focus point instantly. Of course, accustomed to 42mpx files, I feared confrontation. But it went great. In fact, it almost seems that the photos of the a9, compared to those of the a7rII, have greater three-dimensionality. At the high iso he performs better, of course. At 6400 iso the files can be used without problems, just give it a dusting on the fly with Noiseware. During the first two outings I used the gust. Then I discovered that raw files automatically drop to 12 bits like compressed ones and I preferred not to use it anymore, for the moment, that so much the street is not sports photography! Of the a9 II I would just like the lock button on the clearing dial. Of all that extra connectivity, I don't know what to do with it, since I'm not a professional. And then I don't make videos, so the UHS-II double slot doesn't sued me. In fact I have to thank the a9 II because, if it was not for its exit, I could not buy the a9 at this price. Aesthetically, it doesn't drive me crazy. The Sony line is a little too anonymous, for my taste. Of course it's not as horrendous as certain reflexes but it doesn't come close to the beauty of a Leica M10, or an Olympus Pen F or a Fuji x-Pro2. But aesthetics leave the time it finds. It's the substance that matters and there's a lot of it here. In short, as I wrote at the beginning, I feel like I have finally found my ultimate machine. And it's never happened to me before. Over-recommended stra.
Cons:Ergonomics (especially without battery grip), menu
Opinion:I'm a canon. I bought the A9 and I have to say it's a really special camera. MENU: complicated, not logical, but the level of customization that allows you to "build" is truly incredible. AUTOFOCUS: I squeezed it for 30 days intensely (although I didn't post the pictures). Everyone talks about it in an incredible way; It is, with some limitation that it is correct to emphasize. The chase does not work properly when it has to operate in difficult conditions of light, contrast and with a large number of disturbing objects (e.g. classic birds within a forest). Animal eye detection works only for a few and is greatly deceived by the filtering light inside branches and reeds (I preferred to unplug it). In the open field everything works exceptionally well. I think it is essential that those who buy this camera, read the Sony manual, watch the tutorials (especially American photonaturalists), properly customize the object and carry out n tests to become familiar with the instrument. Compared to the Canon autofocus, it's like talking about two different worlds; Setting the autofocus menus of the 1Dx mark ii with its 6 cases and tens of sub cases, does not allow, even to a professional, even vaguely to approach the performance of the Sony A9. MIRINO: I think it's a matter of taste. I prefer the opticikey; more precise in understanding when the subject is in focus. In the case of Sony, "you have to trust yourself a little" (but it almost never gets wrong). The non-darking during the shooting phase is, for action photography, something to try; to keep the subject in the frame and to react quickly to any trajectory changes. ISO: Personally I find the A9 in line with the competition. I have limited the range to 6400. The resulting files allow you to be treated with Topaz, for example, quickly and with excellent results. POSA LATITITY: excellent. I think it is important to point out that inside the viewfinder there is a stylized histogram that allows you to properly balance the highlights and shadows, before the shot. SENSORE: Beware of lens replacement, especially with a hot sensor. Since there is no protection (mirror...) it becomes a vacuum cleaner for dirt. ERGONOMIA: The camera is too small. It is necessary to buy battery grip (also indispensable to increase the number of shots, especially in the intense cold). Last mention I have to reserve it at 100-400 Sony. An excellent goal, in my opinion, superior to the Canon in speed and yield. Less in zoom management. I also had the chance to try the 600 f4. Exceptional, but at a really important price.
Pros:the state-of-the-art of modern photography. It has everything, spatial AF, compactness and lightness, quietness, long-lasting battery, amount of customizations, double slots, (almost) perfection! And the price: it now costs half of the Canikon flagships, and is worth much more!
Cons:as I say in the review, I find that the JPG produced natively is too far from the result of the same RAW file developed in PP with software.
Opinion:A monster. The A9 is literally, and simply, a monster. From 2012 to 2018 I used a Nikon D4; to stay in the yellow house, last winter I switched to Z6, in the (vain) hope that it would develop its ML system. Needing a mature system, as well as a level machine, I just had to land at Sony, and my only regret is that I didn't do it right away. Coming to the point, the A9 is what any photographer could wish for; combines the undeniable advantages of the ML system (silent and AF shot all over the frame just to say a few) to an autofocus system that is unprecedented in the world of photography. As the technicians of this house did, I do not know; the reality is that those who own it can count on an extraordinary tool, able to facilitate the work of those who work with photography and do not talk to us unnecessarily as some little boy on this forum often throws himself to cheer for a brand or for an a Lter. I waited two months to write this review, I wanted to give myself time to be able to make a reasoned judgment. And sensibly I say that I am based: the AF of this machine practically does not miss a shot, the tracking is spatial, the photographer just has to think about the framing. Even in situations really on the edge (very low lighting or backlight with the subject on the edge) is a tank, I have no words. Batteries last a long time, and the machine is full of buttons ready for any customization possible. Defects? I can think of one: while the RAW file is great, just as you can't say about the JPG, maybe I still haven't figured out how to set it, but the difference with a RAW developed with a specific software (use C1) still I have not managed to limar. In conclusion: thanks to the exit of the A9II today this machine can be found at about 3,000 euros; any photographer who is minimally able to use it, and not only able to write on a forum, at this figure should at least try it before speaking.
