sony a9 mirrorless camera VS nikon d5 dslr

 today sony released a haymaker with the a9 mirrorless camera.

as usual with sony (on paper) they absolutely dominate.

“on paper” is the key here.

i’ve made the mistake of nearly jumping ship to sony before. having owned the sony a7, a7s, a7r, a7sII i’m very familiar with the temptation their white papers present. i’m definitely going to give the a9 a whirl, but i’m not holding my breath.

at the very least it’s nice to see a camera maker at the pro level bringing nothing but innovation time after time.
