    Maybe the long awaited/rumored A9?

    Talking about rumors, I'm very curious to see the A7-III's price. I've read rumors (not that I believe the rumors) that the A7-III will cost around €2300 which if true and we are talking body only, would be a major price difference from the A7/A7II's announced prices...

    This A9 is aimed squarely at the sports and action pros, and at (and above?) the Canon 1DX II and Nikon D5.

    Other things of note: New 2.2X life "Z" battery. Joystick. Dual UHS-II capable card slots. No blackout on new EVF.

    All are features I've seen many ask for. ANd now they're here... at a high-end "pro" price. I wonder how long it will take for some of this tech to filter down the line to the more affordable bodies? Probably not too long, but not too soon?

    Twice as much battery capacity. Unfortunately the camera eats 4x as much :)

    I gotta see this sucker in action, saying that I still might prefer an optical OVF solution for sports shooting, especially when working in low light situations.

    I hope A7 II prices drop, because I wouldn't mind getting a second one on the cheap! :D
