Tony, Chelsea & Jordan go hands-on with the new Sony a9: the first truly professional Sony E-mount body. It’s $4,500 with 20 FPS with autofocus, dual memory cards, a joystick, 4K/30p video. Sony wants to beat the Canon 1DX Mark II and Nikon D5 to be the choice for pro sports photographers and photojournalists. Can they do it?
