Sony 9 coming - better get started, CaNikon...
#30
It's true that Sony's reliability reputation is not so great, but there's also been quite a few hiccups from Nikon, (sorry I don't follow Canon),

 

    However, there is one overriding factor in Sony's favour........ the lack of moving mechanical parts, the A9 has only the mechanical shutter to cause problems, the rest is essentially electronic, if you shoot eshutter for example there's no shutter/mirror  life issues and nothing really to prevent you blazing away on the shutter like a maniac.Couple that with no VF blackout and you have check you are not dreaming!

  

 

  I have to admit I was doubtful that Sony (or anybody) would essentially nail the AF situation in the sports arena in this radically short time scale, especially as I shoot the D500......... all that is not yet tested is AF in low light situations, looking at the exposures Sony did a pretty good job lighting the gymnasiums.

 

  Soon the lenses will be there and I see it that it will be difficult to stop the ball rolling.

 

  PS. My guess is that Nikon have seen the bus coming but forget to put their hand out and just watch it drive by!  Wink

 

  Once a design is up and running it's not beyond the realm of possibilities to use robotic assembly, surely that can't be far off!
