VER­DICT

Smart Photography - - Reviews -

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.
