Sony A9 High End E-mount Camera & FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens Coming Next!

Sony A9 High End E-mount Mirrorless Camera and FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens are expected to be announced sometime in 2017.

According to the report from SonyAlphaRumors, the sources that shared the correct information about the newly announced FE 100mm f/2.8 STF GM OSS & FE 85mm f/1.8 lenses also confirmed that the Sony A9 (name is not confirmed yet) high end E-mount mirrorless camera and FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens will be announced this year! And the Sony Chinese Photographer QianLi Zhang also confirmed that a new camera with “Very Fast Burst Rate & AF Speed” is coming! In addition, Sony USA already dropped the prices of Sony a7RII and a7SII ($300 off), maybe this is another sign that Sony is planning to announce a new high-end E-mount camera.

$300 off on Sony a7RII body: $2,898 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

$300 off on Sony a7SII body: $2,698 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

$200 off on Sony a7II body: $1,498 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.

The new Sony A9 camera will be placed above the A7-series, and it will be the new flagship FE camera. It is already confirmed by the Sony manager that the Sony A9 high end E-mount mirrorless camera will have dual card slots. So the main competitors of Sony A9 will be Nikon D5 and Canon EOS 1D-X Mark II.

Sony Alpha a9 Rumored Specs:

  • 72MP sensor
  • Unlimited RAW
  • Dual XQD card slots
  • Better IBIS and HDR
  • “DSLR” alike
  • Bigger than Sony A7RII, smaller than Canon 5D Mark III
  • Price around $5,000
  • Announcement in early 2017

And the big three FE GM zoom lenses will be FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, FE 85mm f/1.4 GM and FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM.

      wtf are you nattering on about? please link to the SAR post that details the rumoured spec of the A9.
      Clearly you don’t own this camera since it doesn’t exist. I recommend you continue to attend school to improve your communications skills.
