See my Sony mirrorless wishlist.

I am sure some of your subscribers might do some sports so I sent you this note.

I just shot with the Sony A9 and the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS and a 1.4 extender. It was amazingly better then the Canon 1Dx Mark II with a Canon 1.4.

My company had already said the 100-400 and Sony was better then the Canon equivalent.

I noticed two things. The hit rate for the first frame to be sharp in a burst was great and no in the middle frames went out in a burst as they do with Canon.

The 400 was a loaner from Sony but I will be getting the 400 for purchase and will be all Sony for my af work from now on also. I can easily shoot a game with two batteries for my main camera, actually could possibly make it through each body on one battery each provided I turn off the cameras after pregame and during halftime.

DIGLLOYD: experiences like that surely are an existential challenge Canon and Nikon in the area of sports and wildlife photography, as Sony will surely improve upon the Sony A9 soon as well as continue adding native lenses.
