    Sony A9 mirrorless camera introduced...

    Not usually into new gear but this one grabbed my attention. Don't plan to buy one, but it might lower the price of used A7's.

    Also want to say that I love my old a5000 that keeps clicking away after surviving much abuse. Bought it used, has been my daily outdoor mountain truck carry for several years now. You can buy excellent used mirrorless cameras for less than $200 currently, at B&H, Adorama, others.

    I make fine art prints, appreciate Galen Rowell's camera gear approach, have no complaints about image quality.

    This image was captured with the little 16mm/f2.8 prime, my favorite daily carry lens on the a5000. The raw image is 47.8M, plenty for large prints.Sony A9 mirrorless camera introduced...-mccue-flat-sunset-copy.jpg

    In the promo blitz, this camera seems to pretty much eliminate any advatages DSLRs have/had. Being full frame its not drastically smaller tho.
    To me getting rid of the viewfinder blackout is one of the nicest, in fact i think this is potentially better than sLR now. I had no doubt it could be done, electronics are faster than a mechanical mirror, but up to now no ones gone through the engineering to bring it to this level. Hopefully this causes trickle down to lower cameras and competitors matching.
