Soooooo, what are your initial impressions?
My initial impressions are that I typically pick the worse times to buy a new camera. When I got the A7 IV it was the day before Christmas Eve, no time to do anything with it. This time I'm dealing with 50MPH wind gusts and blowing snow. It didn't look too bad at one point so I drove out of town to see if I could find a snowscape or two. As soon as I cleared the city limits it turned to crap.

Right now the only subject I have is my dog, who is very suspicious of my motives... :unsure: :laugh1:
 
One thing I'm going to have to get used to is the fact that the Drive and AF selections cannot be programmed into the custom sets on the mode dial, you have to make sure they're selected on the stacked dials on the left side of the top panel. Different than the A7 series where they're programmed in. I think the A9 series are the same as the A1. On the other hand, it will be nice to have both immediately available without having to go into the menu or the functions screen.
 
I never thought I would own a camera that cost that kind of money but I'm glad I did. You will really enjoy it. Congrats.
Thanks!

Not only did I not think I'd ever spend that kind of money on a camera, I thought anyone who would was a friggin' idiot! :laugh1:

A couple of Brits on a Sony forum recommended Panamoz, which helped a lot, saved me thousands of $.

I really, really wanted the A9III to be something different than it is. If they would've mashed an A7R III-ish sensor into the A7 IV body I'd have been a happy man.

I had always hoped for more from the A9 series as well. I still have my original as my backup.
