Cameta interviewed a Sony manager and here are a few news:
1) First he confirmed that they are working on new telephoto lenses
2) More weather resistant than the current A7 series cameras (you can shoot with the A9 in the rain)
And now to the very bold claims we have to verify in real life yet:
1) Canon lenses will autofocus faster on the A9 than on Canon cameras
2) Almost the same High ISO performance of the A7s
3) Says the A9 suffers of less overheating than the competition
He said having two UHS-II card slot are unnecessary (SAR note: We ALL disagree)
