Everyone's favorite lunatics at SAR were chattering about an SR5 level rumor predicting a professional level A9 camera soon. SR5 means absolute certainty. Normally I'd just attribute this to a slow patch at SAR and nothing else. But maybe not. Truth be told, I think Sony has finally assembled all the pieces (High ISO, very good AF, high resolution, pretty good lens line-up) needed to launch a pro camera. Of course, chances are this is 6 months premature, but wouldn't it be something if they did launch a big old $4,000 pro model. I wouldn't buy it. But I would be glad that I could. See now I'm a rumormonger too!
