Opinion: The A9 is a camera that was not within my reach, but now that the A9ii has arrived, it has become affordable on the second-hand market. compared to, for example, Canon 1DX, it is also much more affordable. I come from a canon 1DX and switched to sony A7Rii of which I was super happy with the image quality but the AF was insufficient for bird photography for me. The A9 I have now several months and I regret that I have not switched earlier. the AF is really super aim and it grabs the bird, you just hardly miss a shot! And if you miss it, it's just the photographer's fault. Especially because it is also silent and you do not feel that you are being looked at by everyone around you, for example in a zoo or bird show. even in a shed hut situation, the birds simply do not know that you are there so that you will only see natural behavior. I also expected that the 24 MP would be too small, but the quality is so good that there is still a lot of crop space left, even compared to the A7Rii that I keep next to it for landscape and building photography.
Buffer is also great, it just never gets full, only drawback is that you can not quickly change things.
You have 2 battery for 1 day more than enough. only drawback is if you have some big hands you have to get used to the compactness. Weight is okay, better than the 1dx that always hung around my neck like a brick. Together with the 200-600, this can now simply be maintained all day long. Noise that you eventually get (6400 ISO) is good to polish away.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:20FPS, AF, second highest dial, overall speed, RAW
Cons:dynamic range a little poor
Opinion:I had A9 for about a year and I was totally in love with it from the first use, in sports and dynamic photography is a monster! Infinite battery and excellent iso seal, Raw files have a remarkable recovery capability! The only flaw perhaps the dynamic range that did not satisfy me fully and you notice it by making portraits or landscapes, compared to A7III.
Opinion:I joined the A7RIII the A9 and I can no longer stop shooting, it's a beauty to take naturalistic photos with this body, paired with the 400 f2.8 is a missile like Af, burst shots 20 frames are not wrong the flights of the subjects unique neo is that you find the full boards in a moment you have to opt for a cut from 64 to 128. the batteries last or an infinity even with the cold , the final file is a blast to put in place the seal to the iso is fantastic thing 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 busted: the a9 is crazy in fact. I finally found my ultimate camera. The magic box. He's got everything I could want. It makes me feel calm, master of the situation, focused. For the Street is the ultimate! An electronic shutter without rolling. An autofocus with the grip of a molosso: impressive, that if you don't try it you don't believe it. A truly endless burst, a bottomless buffer. With the fact that I also own the a7rII for a few years, I immediately became familiar with the a9 that has the touch screen, which I felt so much the need for because it allows me to change the focus point instantly. Of course, used 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 more three-dimensionality. High iso performs better, of course. At 6400 iso the files are usable 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 ring. I don't know what to do with all that connectivity, since I'm not a professional. And then I don't make videos, so the UHS-II double slot doesn't make me comfortable. In fact I have to thank the a9 II because, if it wasn't for its exit, I couldn't have bought the a9 at this price. Aesthetically it doesn't drive me crazy. Sony's line is a little too anonymous, for my taste. It's certainly not as horrendous as most SLRs, but it doesn't come anywhere near 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. I mean, as I wrote at the beginning, I feel like I've finally found my ultimate machine. And it's never happened to me before. Super recommended stra.
