Sony has announced a new flagship body: the Sony Alpha A9 mark II. This release is the evolution of the Sony A9 placing it at top of the Sony lineup. The Sony A9 mark II is a full frame mirrorless camera body built for speed. With 24.2 megapixels, capable of shooting at 10 frames per second the A9 mark II will keep your subject sharp with 693 phase detection AF points built into the imaging sensor.
The camera has launched at £4,799 including VAT and comes with a 3 year extended warranty for orders placed in October and November.
The current model Sony A9 was released in 2017, clearly positioned to disrupt to the domination of the sport photography industry by Nikon and Canon and their flagship bodies, the D5 and EOS 1DX mark II respectively. The mirrorless technology of the A9 delivered key advantages over DSLR bodies. The absence of a mirror allowed the A9 to be faster (up to 20fps), quieter (silent with the electronic shutter) and more accurate as the AF system was not disrupted by mirror movement and instead used phase detection pixel AF technology built into the imaging sensor. At Fixation we are very excited to see what new features and specifications the mark II version of the A9 will bring, pushing the technology available to professional photographers to new heights.
