Sony A9 Mirrorless that puts SLR's into the corner

Sony has just revealed its new flagship camera, with even the most advanced competition designs looking like children's toys, on paper that is.
For ages professionals claimed that mirrorless cameras are too slow, they can’t be used for sports or serious work.  Batteries due to their compact nature and constant on LCD screens were drained much faster.
Well the time or reckoning has come.  Is the new Sony A9 up for competition against the best DSLRs like Canon 1Dx or Nikon D5.
Bionz X processor writes 14-bit uncompressed RAW files at resolution of 24.2 Megapixels.
Specs are amazingly impressive:
Viewfinder with resolution of 1280x960 and 120 frames per second refresh, let’s you see lifelike action mirroring (pun intended) the quality of viewfinders on mirrored DSLRs.
Sony's latest camera can shoot at 20 frames per second, like shooting video, with constant on LCD with no black out.
With a buffer capable of holding up to 241 RAW files and up to 362 JPEG files.
Shutter speed is crazy fast at 1/32000th of a second.
Battery the new model NP.-FZ100 is 2.2x longer than the previous Sony models.
Autofocus is superb as well at 693 points covering 93 percent of the frame, and the autofocus system can calculate AF / AE up to 60 times per second.
ISO sensitivity ranges from 10 to 51200, expandable to 50 - 204800.
The new model NP-FZ100 battery lasts 2.2x longer than the previous Sony models.
Full Frame 4K video, down sampled from 6k, makes for sharper images.
Dual SD card slots with Ethernet port for stationary remote photographers.
5-axis image stabilization, I think you know that this means, that any lens can be stabilized.
Add to this silent operation with fully electronic shutter, we think that Sony could have gone further than 20 frames per second but at 24 fps they would compete with their video cameras.
Buckle up Hollywood, there is a new kid in town and it’s Sony A9.

ProMediaGear is already gearing up for accessories for this camera.
