The Alpha 9 is one camera that breaks new grounds in speed utility. The camera is made for speed and silence and the effort has to be appreciated. Battery life has been the Achilles Heel of the Alpha cameras so far, but this time, Sony has addressed it with a high capacity battery, claimed to have double the capacity compared to the old battery. Autofocus with G-Master lenses is still a concern, owing to our experience with the 85mm GM lens. India is a price-conscious market and the camera’s price does look a tad over the top. Overall, the Sony A9 is a game changer that brings the battle right on the doorsteps of the professional D-SLR brigade. Well done, Sony.
