Sony A9 tid-bits

sonyA9Recently we published the rumored specification of the upcoming Sony A9 Specifications .Now we have the latest information via anonymous body via SAR as follows:-

Walking through battery park Manhattan around 5:35pm, I came across someone walking towards 1 world trade, with a graphite looking camera with no markings or paint in a slightly larger and boxier shape than my a7r ii, when I realized it was too large to be a Fuji XT1 but too small to be a Leica T, I looked closer and noticed the user (short chubby guy with red goatee) was using a Sony GM 24-70mm 2.8 lens on the body.

The photographer was pretty uncomfortable when I started asking questions. But I can say this. It was in fact a Sony A9(?!?) proto type, it is slightly larger than the A7Rii however it does not have a built in battery grip. Good things are it does have dual card slots, definitely sd maybe cfast, I really don’t know much about different cards, but he did say it has 2. It has a joystick for autofocus point moving. But most importantly, when he showed me the joystick, the spot where it would say 42M on my a7rii, it said Extra Fine 72M!!

He said this was one of a few prototypes out there and that it was due out end of summer for early fall release (can’t say this is real or not).

Hence we can’t believe the rumored information as quoted, but we can have guess about the upcoming camera A9 from this quoted information.

It is expected that the upcoming Sony A9 will be a bit larger than a7r ii and may be paired with Sony GM 24-70mm 2.8 lens as a kit lens unit, but it may not come with built in battery grip. There is expectation that it will have dual card slots sd cfast. It will come with 72MP sensor with joystick.

So these are the recent rumored specification related to the upcoming Sony A9, which only gives the hints about the upcoming camera.
