Having shot with the a9, I didn’t notice anything particularly troubling, so these enhancements are a bonus.
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
