Sports Photography without the Sony A9

The Sony A9 was recently announced and there's a lot to be excited about. Boasting an unbelievable 20 frames per second continuous shutter with no EVF black out, specs like that alone will get the attention of sports and wild life photographers. But a lofty price tag comes along with all that technology and impressive specs. The Sony A9 is listed at $4500 USD suggested retail price, which puts it out of my price range, and I'm not alone.

I don't feel left out because I really don't have a need for that kind of ultra-fast shutter speed, the 11 frames per second of the Sony A6000 covers all of my sports photography needs. Aside from that, I invested a good chunk of money into the Sony A7RII and A7II. But how would they perform when shooting professional sports. 

The Sony A7RII and A7II shoot in continuous shutter at 5 frames per second, but is that fast enough to cover professional sports. Well, we hope our new video answers that question.
