    New EU/Japan trade deal kicking in?!

    That I dunno, may be they expect the Euro to go even lower.

    You would expect the new trade deal would make it cheaper than before in the EU. Maybe they expect the Euro to tank even more than the pound against the dollar!

    There is no magical new trade deal that makes UK photographers happy.

    The unicorn isn't asleep, nor is it dead, it just ever existed.

    Anyone who has the A9 what the Iso performance? My current 7dii has unusable images beyond iso 800.
    I'm tempted to go for a A9ii + 200-600 instead of a 500mmii Prime for the 7d.

    I was waiting for the 90d and well that fell flat.....

    Even my Mk1 A7R will easily go above ISO800 with no issues. Maybe 3200 before you notice any noise.

    I find a9 ISO performance is similar to that of the 1DXII.

    Which is the best in its class. These cameras where designed for low light

    In fairness there is quite a bit of noise in the first and last pic but much less than what my 7dii would have shown in those situations.

    Nice.

    The first pic was heavily cropped and of course the last is done at 12800!

    Middle pic is optimal with next to no crop
