Imaging-Resource Completes Full α9 Review

Since the launch of the Sony α9, Imaging-Resource has been rolling out their reviews on the various aspects of the camera. Most recently, Senior Editor William Brawley posted their final conclusion review on this groundbreaking full-frame mirrorless machine:

"Sony's α7-family of full-frame mirrorless models have been a tremendous hit with photographers and videographers, both professionals and enthusiasts. Given the range of different α7 models, each with varied capabilities and features, folks were extremely curious about where Sony would go next. With a growing catalog of lenses, a refined and compact body design and high-performance phase-detect autofocus -- to name a few -- there were fewer and fewer areas left where DSLRs had the clear advantage over Sony's mirrorless cameras."

"At last, with the α9, Sony takes aim squarely at the flagship DSLRs from Canon and Nikon, the 1D X Mark II and D5, respectively."

Brawley concludes that the speed, performance and accuracy of the α9 has officially edged out any DSLR competitors. "For many shooters, current mirrorless cameras do just fine in a professional environment, however for sports and action photographers, especially, flagship DSLRs still have the edge in the speed, performance and accuracy departments over a mirrorless camera. That is, until now."
