Garfield is back...

Well I think you will find that is Canon's point, they (and nobody else) can make a sports orientated camera system better than a DSLR yet so they aren't bothering.We need a competitor for the A9 series. Considering the A9/A9II specs, and being $2000 less than the 1DX, it is extremely tempting for wildlife and sports. I must admit I was tempted until I tested out some of Sony's G and GM lenses, and frankly they're awful.
A low-light RF would be interesting, but I feel there's a stronger need right now for one that is designed for sports and wildlife.
Now I know sports pros who sold their 1DX II's for A9's and are happy, but the majority are not there yet. Personally I have yet to use an EVF I can look through for hours without feeling queasy due to the lag, but I'm sure that is probably just me and the fact that I have been looking through an OVF for the last 42 years.
