Sony A9, a brief fling

Personally, the lack of picture profiles in A9 makes it a nogo for video. AF looks to me pretty much the same. 

Then there is the difference in resolution:


I noticed that too, but I think that was user error by the reviewer. Maybe the A9 shot is not in focus?

Both are being oversampled. Hard to think of a reason why full readout of 24 mpix (A9 FF resolution) would give you a mushier image than full readout of 18 mpix (the super 35 sensor area of the R III).

Yes it's out of focus. What's source of that scaffolding shot - the video from previous page?



A7R3 III Super 35


A9 is actually even sharper and cleaner than the A7R3 Super 35 4K mode.

Yes the scaffolding shot is from the 4K comparison video.

Worth noting that this image compares A9 full sensor 4K to A7R3 Super 35 4K. It'd be interesting to see a direct comparison of S35 on both cameras.
