    Re: I think this is the camera to make me switch ... Sony A73

    So the reports by pros testing it that it is choked much too fast for action shooters are wrong and you, having ever used it have another opinion? The problem with poor buffer clearing kept the a9 from being adopted by sports and action photographers. The ergonomics of the line is panned by most pros who depend on cameras for their income. I do not buy Sony products because their corporate culture, company-wide, minimizes the value and duration of ownership.Try getting Sony gear repaired after its production run stops. It is not just cameras but it is part of their business strategy to churn the market, obsoleting older gear at ever shorter periods. Since I got my D800 6 years ago, Sony has ended support for dozens of models produced after that period.
    If you love a camera you never used before is so important and to slag on other brands, why are you not on Sony Lovers Forum instead of hanging out with old fashion camera fans?

    I fully admit I'm not a fan of mirrorless cameras - at least not yet - but I wish you good look and great shooting with your Sony; the A73 looks like it's a great camera.

    The A9 is not an action camera, not is the D5 or the 1DX so of course its not going to keep up with action, you wouldn't use a Sword to chop an onion ...

    "Slagging off other brands"... I think you will find it isnt slagging off more showing the weaknesses If you havent noticed in my Signature I am currently pretty engrained in Nikon with my kit and I was actually about to add a D850 to the line before the A73 was announced.

    PS, I have now used the camera, I have played with one and tested out everything I need to know to make the choice that it is worth the jump from Nikon.

    I still think (and apologise for saying again) that if Nikon wants to stop people de-camping over to Sony then they should offer an FTZ adapter with a motor in it to focus old screw focus lenses, just like the D500, D750, D7200.
    In fact this would make a Z6 or Z7 better then the above because the sensor based VR thing would suddenly make your old screw focus lenses better on them than they were on a DSLR.

    Sony did this with the LA-EA4.

    I'm not sure that many people will buy into Nikon from scratch because of such a thing, but it might just give an existing old Nikon customer another reason to stay with Nikon.
