The rest of the specs include a 693 AF grid with 93% coverage and a 5 axis image stabilization system which can compensate for 5 stops . The sensor also gives the ability to shoot from ISO 50 - 51200 or 50-204800 . The shutter speed can go upto 1/32000 and it has a max flash sync speed of 1/250th . The Bionz-X image processor ,combined with DRAM makes the camera hold a buffer of 241 raw 362 jpeg image files .The biggest addition to the fast shooting sensor is the 1.228 million pixel EVF which has no blackout unlike on DSLR's where the mirror blocks the OVF feed for a short time . The refresh rate on the evf is 120 fps .
Video recording fans will be pleased to find 4K UHD at 30/25/24p and 1080p in 120fps/60fps and so on , the camera however does not fearure S Log or other picture profiles , making 4K a second option as this is primarly focused on photography (and possibly to stop it from destroying the A7Rii and the higher end FS series cameras - or possibly pave way for a A9R or A9S in the future)
The A9 body is said to cost $4500 and Sony does say that the camera will ship in May of this year .
Sony also anounced a new super-telephoto 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 OSS G Master lens . The new lens is currently the longest focal length E mount lens in production and is certainly a great addition to the A9 as it is promoted for sports and wildlife .The 100-400mm lens features 22 elements in 16 groups with a couple of ED lenses as well . The lens features OSS and will retail for $2500 and will ship in JulySonyalpharumors
