    So I'm torn between this move but I'd like to try out an a7iii or a9, and then make a move from there. I currently own a Nikon d810 and a d700 with an 85mm 1.4 and 24-70mm 2.8 both Nikkor glass. I am liking the a9 over the a7iii just for the extra features. Money is limited to what I get for my current gear. But if I got a kit around an a9 I could get a 35mm, 50 and an 85mm. All f1.8 and still pretty fast, but I saw I can get an a7iii with a 24-70mm 2.8 gm and an 85mm 1.4 gm. I like what Sony has to offer and I should've gone to Sony right away but I was narrow-focused oops. But the a9 could give me more with what I want in terms of a camera, I work in different situations, portraits, events, sometimes sports. I am into that photojournalism route as you can say so all those extra features can be helpful and the extra lenses 70-200 and 24-70 I can get my hands on later when I need them more often. Any tips for when trying out sony? And do you guys think it may be the right move for this line of work? The silent shooting is very tempting and the d810 doesn't have that. Please let me know what you guys think!

    Thanks, Ryan

    I don’t think the current a9 has a flip screen. Otherwise it is a great body. They are coming out with a9ii soon so prices will drop a bit.
