Sony A9, 20 FPS w/AF, 24mp FF, no blackout, 3.6M pixel EVF $4500

->> Since the start of the year, Sony has moved ahead of Nikon as the #2 producer of full-frame camera bodies even as Nikon laid off 1,000 employees. The Sigma MC-11 adapter is just a firmware update away from allowing the A9's AF tracking with 10 fps with Canon EF glass. I will be shooting football this season with a couple A9's and a Canon 500 or 600mm f/4L.
The A9 has a 30ms shutter lag time with no mirror slap vibration issues (not a misprint). Sony had a massive earthquake upset their entire camera business last year and yet they posted the largest profit since 1998.

You can dismiss me as crazy if you want but might it not finally be a good time to have a look at what Sony is doing?

The DSLR is dead. Denial is not just a river in Egypt...

(And BTW, the DSLR is not dead)

->> I've loved the A7RII and the Metabones adapter for my Canon lenses. The high ISOs are amazing. I usually shoot on manual and auto ISO and just let the camera drive. Images up to 10000 are definitely usable (especially on social media). I've even shot sports with the camera using the 1.5x crop feature and feel that while the continuous AF isn't great, it's good enough for my occasional use.

My only other issue is the amount of time that it takes to process images onto an SD card - when shooting full res, chimping is nearly impossible.

Also, Patrick you may know the answer to this question, is there a way to turn the EVF off when shooting on strobes? I've only done this a few times, and if I'm shooting several stops under, it's difficult to compose because the frame thru the viewfinder is nearly all black.

->> Not passing any substantive judgement on the A9, A7 or any other Sony cameras, but Sony really cherry picked the data. They sold more cameras over a 2 month period of time. This isn't a defense of Nikon, they clearly have their work cut out for them.

Shooting with studio strobes.

Go to the tab with the cogwheel

Look for the option
Live View Display and change it to OFF

It should no longer emulate the final result and work like an optical viewfinder

->> Patrick is 100% percent right. Just like when Robert Seal said years ago professional sports photography is dead. Canon and Nikon are struggling with the same old technology and not investing that much into research & development Sony is blazing a path.
