I think Canon would LOL about the topic, but Sony has upped their Pro support game with the launch of the a9. During the presentation, Pro Support was mentioned and now we have the details; including walk in service in New York and LA. Since the program’s inception, it now requires 2 bodies instead of one, but with much more service for the $100.00 annual fee.
Sony’s goal is to meeting or exceeding the expectations of working professional photographers.
