Seems an impressive accomplishment but maybe not for OMZ fans.  Not clear if 
there will be an A9r or A7rIII.  Perhaps even both.  They fixed much of the 
ergonomic issues with better menus to boot but A9 no longer support any "apps." 
 That is the only way to input alt lens data pre-shot, AFAIK.  I wonder if they 
will abandon the alt lens crowd now that they have fleshed out the lens stable 
more fully  and continue to expand that? 

Seems they are close to a global shutter.  Some reports the data can be cleared 
in about 1/160 sec but have still seen a few rolling shutter artifacts.  I'd 
rather have the megapickels with fewer FPS. Seems odd  Sonnie seems to playing 
field to themselves.  Patents might argue otherwise but nothing has appeared.

Waiting, waiting, waiting, Mike
