Pros: It's a great machine

Cons: Nothing, not even the price since it currently costs half of a flagship Nikon-Canon

Opinion: It is an exceptional machine, it has no defects. It turns out that it has the body of a mirrorless Sony and therefore ergonomics is what it is, otherwise I do not find any note that can be stuned. Let's go step by step: the yield is brutal at high ISOs, and if properly treated with Topaz Denoise AI, it will allow you unthinkable ISO shots. The image quality is superb, but with a 24mpx FF it's also a foregone conclusion. Skip these "normalities", let's move on to the succulent notes: AF, burst and BLACKOUT'S INSOR. You stand there firing volleys without the slightest noise, without ever losing sight of the subject. You have to get used to it, because the feeling of "am I really shooting?" is strong. When I had a 1DXII at the same time, it was laughable. The latter firing gusts resembled more of an AK47 than a reflex. The fact that the image never gets obscure, makes the sessions more hectic definitely less stressful for the eye, which comes out rested even after several hours. The AF itself does not miss a beat, you have to really strive to make out-of-focus images. The settings are really a lot, but even if you put "ample AFC" you will still take home the shot, without too much fuss. At today's sale price of 3000 to 3500 new is an absolute best-buy. It costs half of a Flagship Nikon Canon and offers much more. Especially thinking in a way of buying the "new", I do not see how you can prefer a D5 - 70-200 FL, to this A9 - 70-200 GM, which will even save us over 3000 euros. I advise all professionals to try it, so as to realize the real majesty of this machine.

Pros: High percentage of focus photos with moving subjects. Excellent maintenance of the maf after docking. Very high percentage of images in focus. Once hooked, the subject after is not lost by the af even on contrasting backgrounds such as rippling water or trees or mountains. Great speed af also to f/9. They don't rotate accidentally. Embarrassing shutter silence compared to the 1dxmkII. Immediate awareness of over or underexposure thanks to the excellent electronic viewfinder.

Cons: Small body, suitable for small hands.

Opinion: I tried thanks to my friend Otto the a9 with 200-600 and 1.4X. After 3 years of using the Canon 1dxmkII with 500 is II and extender, I must recognize that the a9 is at least 10 years ahead for functionality and of course for weight. Being my in-flight bird interest, the responsiveness af a f/9 and the accuracy of the amazing fire photos, up to 90%. My 1dxmkII barely gets to 40-50%. This largely depends on the lack of the mirror, which by lifting during the shots interrupts the reading of the af. The a9 body appears sturdy and compact, but without exceeding in weight. A camera that is easy to be transspot and suitable for long work sessions. High-quality mechanics for materials and precision of the ghieres that require pressure to rotate: practically unlike many reflexes, they never rotate accidentally. As soon as I can view the files on the computer I will report on the quality of the files and the image.

Pros: Af, amazing electronic viewfinder, adjustable lcd, gust, silent shutter, image quality, ISO hold, battery, handling, key arrangement, focus mode adjusting nuts, 693 focus points

Cons: White balance

Opinion: There are no words. Amazing. You don't miss a shot. A real gem. I come from 6d and shoot with the A9 became enormously easy (this could be a cons for some nostalgic, but I think it is part of the progress, as well as a time the focus was only manual and there were no zooms). Only the white balance does not satisfy me like that of the Canon. I have not tried other mirrorless, maybe it is a normal thing, but also the manual focus is an absolute pleasantness with the image that is zoed in the viewfinder and allows you to focus with a great precision. 693 Focus points compared to the 11 of the 6d...... What about, before I used very little the AI servo on the Canon, now I use practically only AF-C, and if you use the tracking function, the subject is followed everywhere. Recommended for both professionals, but also for amateurs who want to "jump" in some photo shoot... The car will help you a lot and you can be sure to take home the result.

Pros: The (almost) absolute perfection

Cons: Hard to say. I could say the price but it is certainly not the real cons of this top of the line.

Opinion: Well, gentlemen, here is perfection (or almost). But to my humble opinion is the best camera Sony and all other machines of various brands (Canon and Nikon in Primis) available at this time. This wonderful flagship I have from June 2018 alongside the adored Sony a7RII (great camera for resolution and not only). But this machine beats all the competition (Sony in Primis). Wonderful file quality, at R2 levels but with a higher level in the cleanest yield and the colors are more accentuated (many do not appreciate the color of Sony, but personally, I like). The auto focus is simply the best and offers the best of the best on responsiveness thanks to the full frame layered sensor (staked) perfectly follows the subject, calculating it 60 times per second, and soon will come a new filmware that from a touch of life to this Machine by introducing REAL TIME AF TRACKING and EYE AF TRACKING, as well as an improvement on white balance. This camera, is a perfect combination between the quality and responsiveness of the AF that from here on, Sony will point to the next line-up. Not to mention ergonomics and utility, large and durable battery, improved ergonomics, joystick, AF and burst rings, Touch only for auto focus, both in video and photo (if the touch were like the Canon, which also makes the shot). Technically I do not add anything else, that now we already know how the camera, perfect in all situations, even in the landscape behaves well, but it goes strong in sports photographs, Reportage, Street, Wedding, and more. Personally I can't find a flaw that makes me think and say: It's a perfect machine!!! Maybe a bit the AF, in some contexts (but not always happens) does not engage completely. But then for the rest, who needs to work in a perfect way, is the perfect machine for professionals, even for advanced amateurs like me... UPDATE: The 5.0 firmware makes the autofocus UNERRING, nothing escapes (not even the eyes). Great white balance but still can be improved, but for me it is the top.

Pros: The Revenge of the mirrorless!

Cons: No one to be the first A9

Opinion: I state that I come from Canon "professional" and that I arrived at the A9 after trying the A7RIII (for my type of photography has too many pixels to manage). Sony has unveiled the A9 as the ideal camera for sports photographers and professionals who need record performance but using it I tell you it is exceptional at 360 °. As soon as you pick up the Sony A9 the first sensation is that it takes your breath away: responsiveness and speed at the highest levels, it looks like a reflex and not a mirrorless, and the AF is very precise even with fast moving subjects. Needless to stand to list the features and performance that you can find from anywhere, my advice is to go and try it! The Sony A9 is a great camera with excellent performance, the benchmark not only in the world of mirrorless but also of SLR cameras.
