I have just placed an order for an a9 today having been a Nikon users for 4 decades. A friend let me borrow his a9 a few weeks ago to take photos for my sons American football team (based in the UK) and I was blown away it’s so fast
Went in to local shop in Glasgow to try it and have ordered that and a lens arriving next week and traded in all my Nikon gear.
I look forward to learning a new system and updating you with my experience and in all likelihood asking questions
has anyone has any slowing down issues with their a9?
When I use the aperture and time dial the responses are so bad that it nearly takes up to 2/3 seconds to change.
Sometimes lags terribly as well. If I switch off, the camera actually takes up to 5 seconds to go off.
The AF is slow as well. Tried multiple, lenses, cards, batteries and still have the same issue.
Apparently once it's been on for a while, like 5 or 10 minutes, hanging down on my shoulder it gets worse.
As soon as I switch it off and back on again, the issue is gone for a few minutes then gets bad again.
Anyone have any ideas?
Its hosting the latest firmware to this date.
I started with a Minolta and then switched to Canon. I have a nice line of Canon lenses, to include a Canon 400 f2.8 and a 600 f4, which are fantastic. I am considering switching from a 5D3 to an A9, but I am reading that the A9 will not shoot at 20fps when using a non-native lens. Can someone explain why this is the case seeing that a lens is just something that the camera sees through? Unless this is just a tactic that Sony is using to force sports photogs to use their lenses, instead of the ones they have already spent 10's of thousands on?
