Sony is going after Canon/Nikon in a BIG way.   While Sony cameras continue to sell well – their aps-c line and full frame, the sidelines of sporting events are still dominated by Canon and Nikon. The newly announced Sony a9 hopes to change that. With the a7R II and a7S II already pushing Sony full frame sales above Nikon for the 2nd spot, this is an exciting announcement.

I am here in New York for the Sony a9 announcement and hands-on shooting.  I just recorded my thoughts in a short video
