The reduction in AA filtering and better low light performance could offset the lack of an MP bump. I guess we’ll have to wait a while to know that for sure. I think you’d be very impressed by the new AF. It feels much faster than the Mark II which I wouldn’t have thought possible. The additional AF points and the speed with which you can change them are going to be a big deal IMO. If you are a field/arena/stadium sports shooter and the finances are there I think youd have to go for it. Canon owns Tokyo 2020 at this point unless Sony has an A9 III up their sleeve.This is the review I've been waiting for. The autofocus improvements look very good. Feeling much better about 20 mpx now.
For me, who isn’t a pro sports shooter and isn’t going to be doing multi cam big budget video productions that I shot in RAW, it’s going to be hard to justify buying any DSLR at this point let alone one that costs $6500.
