I suspect heating may become a concern here, as will storage. The comments section is most enlightening - there are quite a few people taking this with a grain of salt, which is excellent news, but for me the most germane comment was the one made by the guy who asked the pros, "under what circumstances does one use up a 200 shot buffer?"

Battery drainage is also mentioned, and some cynical wag was betting (unseriously, I suspect) that Sony wouldn't cover warranty repairs for blown shutters...

With some of the newer high speed memory options I can see this. The inability to do it in the past was mainly due to speed of media. Only so much buffer could be put into the camera to disconnect the slow media from the fast output.
Honestly this is never an issue for me but I don't shoot sports or bird in flight enough to warrant crazy long raw bursts.

Then there is the investment of all that time you have to spend processing the RAW files - or deciding which ones to ditch. I suspect each A9 should come with a new desktop PC optimised to deal with the data the camera will feed it, especially since someone over on the MF forum was talking about a 75MP Sony full-frame sensor... and if you are outputting endless RAW from that, you need to contemplate marriage to your copy of lightroom, because you and it are going to spend a lot of time together.

take your pick if you care.
