This is how Sony Marketing postioned the new A9 (no mention of wedding photography)

The image above shows you a text written by Sony Marketing. It explains in short whom the Sony A9 is aimed for. As you can see:

  1. The High End Canon 1DxII and Nikon D5 are included in the main competitors list
  2. The A7rII and A7sII are placed below the A9 which is the “Flag-ship” model providing Speed. I guess this means the future A7rIII and A7sIII will keep the “A7” naming?

What’s interesting is that they never mention “wedding” photography as a possible application!

We have our own Facebook groups and pages you can join:
Sony A9 group and Sony A9 page
Sony A9r group and Sony A9r page
Sony A9s group and Sony A9s page
The difference between group and page: On The Group you are an active member that can post own stuff. On the page you will find our own A9r or A9s news only.

Reminder: Today at 17:00 reviewers will be allowed to publish their A9 reviews and image samples. So expect a storm of A9 news. After that I am ready to publish some new rumors (starting off next week).

First image samples shot on the new Zenitar 50mm f/0,95 Full Frame E-mount lens

All images are credited to Gleb Sukovatykh (instagram or YT channel)

SAR reader Gleb just sent me this info about the new Zenitar 50mm f/0.95 FF E-mount lens:

I visited the PhotoForum 2017 exhibition in Moscow past weekend where I had a chance to get my hands on the Zenitar 50mm f0.95 E-Mount and test it on my a7sII. I made a quick instagram video and included some footage that was shot using this lens. The lens looks like a tank, weights like a tank, and built like a tank.
Just don’t forget to mention that this is not a final version of the lens and that everything was shot hadheld at 1/60 sec and wide-open at f0.95, so that’s why it’s kinda blurry and not exactly in focus. I don’t want people to think that the lens is a piece of garbage :)

There is no info yet about the possible lens pricing and sales start. Click on the images below to see some image samples shot on the pre production lens:

For the first time in 50 years David Burnett can see the decisive moment on the Sony A9

Let’s forget all the tech magic of the Sony A9. Because the camera also brought on one very “cognitive” revolution. David Barnett is a Professional Photographer for over 50 years and he says on the video above (minute 30):

“It’s been 60 years since we had Single Lens Reflex Cameras. The decisive moment on a SLR was the moment you never saw. You never really knew if you had it. And the fact that this viewfinder (EVF of the A9) doesn’t go dark I think it’s fantastic”

So after more than 50 years he can finally…SEE! :)
