    It all depends on lots of factor and hard to unswear it.
    Today you can buy a perfectly good wedding kit for relatively so little
    D610 or 6D
    Tamron 24-70mm 2.8
    Tamron 70-200mm 2.8
    50mm 1.8
    Should be around 4k-5K or almost half if bought used.
    In hands of a good pro such a set will bring results just as good as an A9
    So its complicated :)

    For me I ordered the A9, mostly for the focus joystick, dual slots, focus and lower megapixels. I love my R2 but it's too much for weddings (42mp)

    Plus for someone like my self shooting 40 weddings a season, these cameras just make my life easier. Of course I can do them with a D610, hell even a couple of F100's would do me.

    But yes. Sony make my life easy. I don't miss my Nikon kit at all.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    Then that's all that matter, if you are happy and find this tool (A9) helping you then that's it :)

    What keeps me away for now going fully with Sony is the lenses, they are so expensive and you simply have no third party offering, Sigma has very few APS-C for my a6300 and their AF sucks compared to native lenses.
    Once I can get same AF off all the lenses I need for my work to work with a Sony body then Sony will be a valid choice for me but since I am totally invested in Nikon and find the 24-70mm 2.8 and 70-200mm 2.8 Sony G master insanely expensive and I can get for half the price a new Tamron to work on my Nikon I just don't see a way to completely move to Sony.
    Once Tamron and Sigma make their lenses totally reliable on e-mount Sony I will see where I am going with my gear.

    If losting AF isn't a big deal, you can always adapt most lenses as the FFL is very small.

    AF is a big deal in video for me or else I would still have the Panasonic G7

    my a6000 has actually been a little disappointing. I just spent another week with it, and was actually more happy with some of the shots from my Pixel phone...maybe my D610 sensor and glass has just spoiled me.

    Not sure if it's just due to the stock lens, but I have to process the files heavily in most cases to make them look somewhat decent; it's rare that a shot looks good SOOC. Really lacks tonal and color range w/ little recovery. Poor color saturation and and overall green/yellow hue to the images -- I bump contrast, clarity, vibrancy, and saturation heavily and then have to de-saturate the yellows back down. I have lots of trouble just white balancing normal scenes -- it gets old fast. And It really falls apart in darker scenes above 3200 ISO.

    here's a good comparison:
