Conclusion from DPReview:

The Sony Alpha 9 Mark II comes with the best autofocus system we’ve seen. It’s compact yet has a good-sized grip, produces great Raw and JPEG files, offers excellent battery life and solid video capture. That said, we do think its video capabilities and rear screen could be updated, and of course, this is a sports camera, so those looking for maximum resolution or dynamic range are barking up the wrong tree. But the a9 II meets and, in some cases, exceeds the capabilities of its peers and makes for a truly compelling value for sports and action photographers.

Sony a9 II body: $4,498 at AmazonB&HAdorama.
