    Most of the capabilities of the sensor in A9 are disabled.

    My hunch was correct and this is the reason why I am waiting for it hit my target price.

    Very interesting, of course I don't understand half of it

    Vivek, I suspect the greatest strength of Sony has been their sensors, but like a fast car that can only come into its own on a clean highway without other traffic to slow it down, the rest of the camera - the pipeline, memory, write speed has to be improved for it to reach its true potential.

    Sony's sensors have been used by Nikon and Pentax quite successfully.

    I don't believe it is a deliberate ploy on Sony's part to 'disable' the sensor. When the a9 was first released it was already the most advanced camera in many ways, IMHO. The fastest fps of any camera, without any blackout in the EVF, largest frame buffer, blisteringly fast AF - I still had my 1DX MkII at that time and in straight comparison, the Sony won out, especially for BIF. All of this in a small, mirror-less body.

    The fact that they have now been able to tweak the system with firmware upgrades suggests they built a lot into the sensor/body and have been slowly working on the software side to maximize its abilities. They have also taken into account a lot of things people asked for, though there is still room for improvement and one can hope they are still listening.

    I am not a software expert so I cannot say if all the new firmware upgrades could have been done right off the bat on the first release, I suspect not. Most other makers only correct their bugs and errors with FW upgrades. In my 17 years of using Canon DSLRs, I do not recall them doing anything significantly new in terms of features with FW upgrades.

    As I've said elsewhere, no camera is perfect. I was hoping for an upgraded model in the a9 series this year, but I am happy that they chose the software route instead, means I don't have to shell out for yet another body.

    What I would really like is for the A7rIII to have the same superfast AF of the a9. But that would probably require a hardware upgrade which means wait for the next model release.

    Pricing is not ideal, but given that the Canon 1DX II is $1000 more, the Nikon D5 is $2000 more, I think the a9 is competitively priced, especially since, IMHO again, it does a remarkable job where needed. As far as price drop is concerned, it is bound to happen, but maybe if you don't have an aversion to it, used bodies may be a better value right now.

    Pradeep, Agree that Sony make impressive sensors.

    Disagree about the FW update defence.

    I canít think of reasons for crippling the sensorís capabilities in a flagship camera.

    This is what SonyAlphaRumours says about that:

    I think I understand even less of what the spec-sheet says as Pradeep . What are the highest priority specs of the sensor that you would like to see "uncrippled" in the A9?

    What does that have to do with sensor crippling?

    Right now I am using mostly my Fuji GFX 50S on tripod, including schlepping it around on short to medium hikes. I am looking forward though to the firmware updates to my A9 later this year. Nice to get a ďnewĒ camera without spending new money!

    Shooting


    • Highly accurate automatic detection and tracking of subjects / Tracking, Tracking On, Touch Tracking

    A subject tracking function has been provided that improves the conventional Lock-on AF function. A newly developed object recognition algorithm achieves real-time high-speed processing of spatial information consisting of color, pattern (brightness level), and subject distance (depth). In addition to the conventional operation method of setting the focus area mode to Tracking, you can also start tracking at the desired time by assigning Tracking On to the Custom Key. Furthermore, setting Touch Tracking from the menu lets you select the subject to be tracked by simply touching the desired subject on the monitor. Tracking and Tracking On are available in still image shooting mode. Touch Tracking is available in still image shooting mode and movie shooting mode, but unavailable when shooting with the viewfinder.

    A Face/Eye AF Set. function evolved from the conventional Face detection function has been provided. The function has been enhanced so that Eye AF (AF-C/AF-S mode support) operates even while the shutter button is pressed halfway down or the AF-ON button is pressed. In addition, you can have the camera automatically select the eye on which to focus, or you can specify the right eye or left eye beforehand. Eye AF is not available during movie shooting.

    • Touch pad function / Touch Pad Settings

    A touch pad function has been provided that lets you move the focusing frame position by dragging your finger on the monitor like a touch pad. The focusing position moves in accordance with the amount of movement of your finger on the monitor. This lets you move the focusing position smoothly while looking through the viewfinder. In addition, a setting that moves the focusing position to the position where the monitor is touched is also available.

    • Increased focal plane phase detection AF accuracy and expanded application range

    The AF algorithm has been further brushed-up to improve the focal plane phase detection AF accuracy during AF-C and continuous shooting. Performance has also been enhanced in environments with lower light compared to outdoors, such as indoor sports scenes. In addition, the aperture value range over which focal plane phase detection AF is available during AF-C and continuous shooting has been expanded. The maximum value has been increased from the conventional F11 to F16. This expands the AF application range to enable use such as panning during continuous shooting. This is supported when any E-mount lens that supports focal plane phase detection AF is mounted.

    • Increased number of contrast AF frame divisions

    The number of contrast AF frame divisions has been increased from the current 25 frames to 425 frames. This enables highly accurate AF even in low-light environments or other scenes where contrast AF is advantageous. Use in combination with 693-point focal plane phase detection AF realizes high-speed, highly accurate AF in all circumstances.

    • Circulate focusing position setting / Circ. of Focus Point

    A new setting has been added that lets you circulate the focusing position to the up, down, left and right sides. This lets you efficiently set the focusing position when the subject moves frequently from one end to the other of the AF area, such as when shooting sports scenes.

    Re: A7r, A7r2 - and why I'm keeping both ...

    Good News for TAP on A9 under FW 5.0.

    Checking out my 55/2.8 Micro-NIKKOR on TAP LM-EA7 under FW 5.0 on my A9 I found with appropriate pre-focusing it could AF-C successfully in the entire Focus Area with Flexible Spot M.

    AF-C for Eye-AF also worked equally well, even for ISO 20,000 and OFF-Center with Flexible Spot M.

    An image of my backyard with white clouds, snow on mountain tops, and fruit trees with white blossoms.



    Of course the blossoms of the Apricot tree to the right got hit on April 1with a bit of frost and snow just when the first blossoms appeared.

    Thanks Bart. The Apricot tree is iffy, the Plum tree on the left seems okay, the Apple tree not in the picture too early to tell. It will have blossoms in the second half of April, still prone to a surprise day of frost and snow in some years.

    Thanks for confirming what I understood, but I'm still puzzled as to why the A7R3 got the animal AF first. Very odd.


    Yes, same thoughts here. Different cameras, different firmware. A9 with the LSI might be a bit more work to load and reprioritize current functions around the AI dictionary ( just a guess).

    In the meantime, I was able to get Eye AF 5.0 on the A9 to work on my little dog's eye ( maybe it always did and I never noticed).”

    Quote:

    This is how I interpreted it would work for the A7III and A7RIII. The A9 and a6400 have the continuous tracking feature, so those are the ones that I think have that true “real time” feature. “Real time” for 7 and 7R mark IIIs it seems to mean just not having to choose between your typical focus points or Eye-AF - it’ll just default to Eye-AF.

    This is what I've been wondering since they announced. I knew the update wouldn't be nearly as big as the one for the a9, but I was hoping that actual eye AF on people would see a bigger upgrade than just allowing us to use a different button. Will have to test it myself to see.”

Given my success with the C Sonnar, I now have high hopes for the G45 with TAP on the A7RIII.


    Still, the buzzy-buzz its always been, but works. Just tried it on the A7r3 v 3.0. Seems like I see better AF hit if the camera is set to AF-S instead of my normal AF-C. AF-C just seems to ignite the little green boxes continuously or way too much.

    Animal Eye AF works too BTW. "

    Sony releases long-awaited FE 35mm F1.8 lens
    Published Jul 9, 2019 | dpreview staff
    https://www.dpreview.com/news/203943...4010_132618830

    MSRP of $750

    Actually I like my FE 35/2.8, my first Sony AF FE lens that came with my A7R.
    My go to 35mm FF equivalent presently is the Fujifilm GFX 50S + GF45 f/2.8.

    I dunno Bart, that should depend on the quality of the lens, no?
    Let’s see some reviews first before a making a judgement.
    I just saw it on B&H for $748.

    Well I do know that the Sony budget lenses are good value for their money.
    I would be surprised if this 35/1.8 turned out to be a lemon.

    Just my $2 ...

    It has one aspherical element and no other "special" glass. That surprises me and for that reason, I am hoping that the test results are good. Otherwise, it seems a tad high price-wise.

    DPReview's Sony FE 35mm F1.8 sample gallery

    Based on their findings I'd say it's a fair performer.
