    On dpreview you can read that the Sony a9 Mark I will stay on the market after the launch of the Mark II.

    If the Mark I continues to fall in price, it will also become more interesting for other buyer groups.

    The a9II is certainly a very effective camera. Eye-AF in tracking mode works great!

    The only thing missing really is exciting lenses. I like the 135mm f1.8 GM. The results are technically excellent, the bokeh is not unpleasing, but it lacks some sort of excitement. Not sure what exactly. I just don’t see what I used to see with my Zeiss lenses or with the Nikon Z glass. Images that just pop in 3D on you screen when you open the files in C1 Pro.

    It still is a very effective combo for events and corporate work. No complains.

    For those using the Sony system what glass would you recommend that compares favorably with Zeiss Otus standards?

    Cheers,

    I elected to stay with a9 I.  It has just about all the same features.  The eye AF and FPS speed etc. for me are just fine.  If I was a journalist and working an event the a9 II may be a winner with the ethernet connection.

     

    I use all G-Master lens and I really find them to be excellent.  The 86mm G-Master is really nice for portraits etc.

    I really like the Batis 135 on Sony a7/9 cameras. The balance is great. My 135 Apo-Sonnar is gathering dust.

    The CV 65/2 is a great lens, and so is the Sigma 35/1.2 Art.
