    Just noticed the $4500 a9
    Sony - Alpha a9 Mirrorless Camera (Body Only) - Black

    has a $350 vertical battery grip
    Sony - Alpha a9 Vertical Battery Grip - Black

    I was watching videos of this at 10fps and 20fps and it's "silent" shutter feature. Pretty cool ...

    Though I'm actually looking at 24mp or high density sensor cameras for very long distance and possibly conversion to Full Spectrum.

    so far I see ...
    Sony a7 R II - a FullFrame at 42mp
    down to the
    Sony a5100 24.3 mp crop sensor camera

    and of course the multitude of various options from FujiFilm.


    maybe the a9 and grip will be 1/10th the new price in the used market ... :)

    OK, but I'll stay with my 'old' 24 million pixel mirrorless at only 9 fps
    and I'll still use my old DSLR lenses

    they are too busy selling you the same camera from 1997 just stuffed with slightly better hardware each year.
