  • Vlad

    EEOooooyyy !!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Sony's PR department of cameras got direct access to your emotions :)

  • Eugen

    And the resolution is 36 or 42mp?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      24 megapixels, like the usual a9

  • Maksim

    Something is very expensive.
    I'm thinking of buying canon eos r, I found for 38 thousand UAH. Or maybe even Panasonic s1.
    Not decided yet.

    • Pavel Gorbunov

      Better Sigma fp

      • Arkady Shapoval

        She has not even been officially announced yet, and looking at her design, for a photo this is a very controversial option.

  • Neo

    The camera is just for the sake of capturing the market, so that there is something to choose from Sony or Sony among the top cameras

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Good theory, especially since no one asked for a replacement for a9, and didn’t even think about guessing that Sony will release a replacement for it this quarter.

    • Pokemon

      The answer is simple - the Japanese have the Olympics next summer. For the Japanese, this is of particular importance (many remember the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, which was of great importance for post-war Japan). And now there is an unspoken competition among Japanese camera manufacturers. There will be many new products before it starts.

  • Uncle Tolya

    At Sony I like the color of the shape of the ring around the mount on the carcass, there’s nothing to improve here, but the rest can be added pixel by pixel in the foot and thereby update the camera.

  • @ Lex

    Wow, Sonya now knows how to shoot Nikon D500 10 frames per second)
    It's revolution Johnny!

    • Alexander

      wow, it remains to understand the difference between the 1.5 Nikon D500 crop (20.7MP) with 153 AF points and the full Sony a9 II (24MP) frame with 693 AF points on the sensor. How and why the shooting speed depends and why 10k / sec (shutter mech) in full frame and 20k / sec (electric shutter) is kind of not bad, and the D500 smokes nervously aside.
      Strongly want to compare crop 1.5? Compare the D500 with Sony A6500, with Sony 11k / s at 24Mp with D500 10 fps 20.7Mp, while the A6500 has 5 steps, 425 points of phase AF, and non-neutered video.
      In general, wow!

      • @ Lex

        I deliberately compared with the speed d500, because d5 / 1dh he loses on this parameter.
        Well, the electronic shutter is a toy, without a global tent.

        • Michael

          Uh ... like even the first a9 reads the matrix fast enough so that there are no distortions.

  • Nicholas

    "" The shutter is designed to prevent smudging even with the SLIMEST vibrations ""

  • Fujheiter

    You can say all her life what advanced cameras she has, and shoot on canon / nikon. Good concept, but no more.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      SonyHater, log in :)

  • Sergei

    I wonder what 5.5 stops of stabilization are we talking about, even if the picture shows that the edges of the corners of the matrix are covered with a bayonet ...
