Sony A9 Officially Announced Today

I have this camera with a range of Sony lenses. Previously I had most Pentax DSLR from the ist-D to the K3 with a wide selection of lenses. Also used Canon 5d's and Nikon d800's. The A9 continuous AF is really revolutionary compared to DSLRs. Compared to Pentax C-AF the difference is extremely in favour of the Sony ( in scenarios where a k3 would get 0% hit rate the A9 gets 100%). The AF-C even work incredibly well in 4k 30p and 1080 120p video. If you are satisfied with Pentax AF then don't try the A9 as it is probably better not to know what you are missing out on if you don't want to be tempted to buy more equipment.
By the way I don't even shoot sports but mostly street photography. Yet the C-AF and Eye AF performance are just useful in so many scenarios where you need to get a useful shot of a fleeting moment. It has made the biggest difference to increasing my ratio of good shots than any camera upgrade in the past. Using a DSLR after this camera seems only to make sense for nostalgic reasons.
I think non-electronics focused DSLR companies like Pentax are really going to be relegated to ever smaller niche customers in the future given the increasing technology performance gap emerging with Sony.

I agree with some previous comments about the a9 being overpriced though. The manufacturing cost can't be that much higher than the A7Rii. The build quality is fine but does not quite give the same impression of robustness as a K-1 for example. The A9 build quality is similar to A7rII which is based on the A7ii which is a $1400 camera. However given the completely unique performance the camera offers I think Sony are justified in charging a premium since there is no competition at the moment. Anyway, the camera performance is really fantastic.

No it would be about 1600 USD equivalent when you factor in exchange rate, gst and shipping. One of the cheapest prices in the world

Pentax should have come out with this first as there is no competition from the likes of Sony as they focus on FF mirror-less. But as always due to their conservative management someone else might eat their lunch. Mirror-less makes the most sense in MF out of all formats - high resolution and slow speed benefits from no mirror vibration and CDAF, continuous AF performance is not important. Not to mention the ridiculously large downsizing possible (compare the top view of the 645z and the new hasselblad, the mirrorless is about 1/4 the depth). Wide angle lenses (which is the main target for the mainly landscape user base) will also be drastically easier to design as there is no huge backfocus distance constraint (~70mm! for 645Z). The cost could probably be as low as 4-6K USD due to the simplicity of the camera (assuming 2-3K sensor cost). There are so many obvious advantages here that if Pentax does not go down this path they will have serious problems selling the 645Z series in a few years as they will no longer be the cheapest and have far too many disadavnategs over a mirrorless approach. I suspect if they delay longer it is highly likely Fuji might come along and eat most of their market. A good strategy would be to make the 645z full frame 100MP flagship and the 645mirrorless a 50MP crop frame (but design the mount for full frame for future proofing). That way they can have two convincing product streams and invest in whichever one has good growth down the line.
