Sony A9 High End E-mount Camera Coming with Fast AF, High ISO, High FPS and Not So High Megapixels

Sony A9 (name is not confirmed yet) High End E-mount Mirrorless Camera and FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM Lens are expected to be announced sometime in 2017.

The previous rumor said the Sony A9 will have an amazing 72MP sensor, but it seems that it is wrong! Today according to the report from SonyAlphaRumors, the Sony A9 high end E-mount mirrorless camera will NOT have such a high megapixel, and this camera will have fast auto focus, high ISO sensitivity and high-speed continuous shooting. The name of this high end E-mount camera is NOT confirmed yet, but it will be placed above the Sony A7-series and have dual card slots. The main competitors of Sony A9 will be Nikon D5 and Canon EOS 1D-X Mark II. And maybe Sony will release several different version of this new high end E-mount camera line. Like Sony A9 on Facebook.
