I was able to do a first test with the Sony A9 on my Vietnam tour that just ended. At temperatures of up to 40°, the approximately 1 kg weight saving compared to my FE 400/F2.8 is quite nice. Optically, the lens is very good, although not comparable to the 400, which is not to be expected given the price difference.
