Sony has officially announces the a9 II (Pre-order at B&H Photo Video), which adds a host of features for the working professional, along with a refined design largely borrowed from the a7R IV.
The sports-oriented a9 II uses the same full-frame 24MP sensor as its predecessor, though its faster Bionz X processor improves AF speed and precision, along with EVF display response. It retains the same 693-point on-sensor PDAF system as the a9, but with new algorithms that improve subject tracking. The camera can still shoot at 20 fps with no blackout using the electronic shutter, and the burst speed using the mechanical shutter has risen to 10 fps. There’s also a new anti-flicker system when using the mechanical shutter, making it much more usable under artificial light.
The Sony A9 II will ship in the US and Europe in October 2019, priced at approximately $4500 / €5400 respectively. Press text can be found here. Product page at Sony UK. Image samples at SonyUK.
