Dpreview apologies: “Sony a9 is sharper than we thought”

Share

SAR readers already noted that in their Sony A9 review the studio shots looked somewhat soft or slightly out of focus. Well Dpreview just issued this statement

The lens was not optimally focused….To make a long story short, we’ve re-shot our studio scene shots of the Sony a9 with the FE 85/1.8 lens, and they’re much sharper. We apologize for misleading any of our readers, but it’s a long story..

In little over a month the Sony A9 had to hold the pressure of overheating stories, banding and the Dpreview soft shots. Seems like at the end everything got clear and we can finally talk about the many good things of the A9 :)
