dpreview staff has just tested the new Sony Alpha a9 (Amazon/B&H Photo/Adorama) today. He said that Sony a9 is worth professional sports and action photographers to learn and try. The only weak point of Sony a9 is that “Switching systems is not very easy, it costs a lot.”
Below are what dpreview staff said:
For a professional wedding and event photographer who isn’t spending hours in inclement weather, I’d say the Sony a9 is worth a look if you’re used to Dx-series cameras from Nikon, and 1D-series models from Canon. With the a9, you’ll save a ton of weight, have a higher frame rate (again, only relevant if you need it), and likely have an easier time following the action than with even the best DSLRs.
But it must be said, the cost of switching systems isn’t something to be sneezed at – and it’s something we’ll be looking at in detail in a forthcoming article, so stay tuned.
