    The A9 can shoot electronically without banding under most artificial light sources.

    Good summary if I could only add that off camera flash options with there myriad battery, recharge, HSS and range options have exploded for mirrorless as well.

    They'd be the same options as for the DSLR though.

    I will add to my above summary:

    I somehow ended up doing half a shoot on Sunday in APSC mode because I accidentally hit the C3 button that had been set to toggle APSC/FF.

    :/

    Fortunately even the greatly reduced resolution was just enough for my needs. :)

    Not necessarily wind back to the first release years ago and not much good options other than native which was not as great as native canon or Nikon DSLR options.

    I'm confused? What difference is there with off-camera flash options with mirrorless and DSLRs?

    I think he is trying to say that the flash options for Mirrorless now equal those for DSLR.

    Exactly, mirrorless has matured greatly. I can’t believe I have a Godex flash system that surpasses the range, recycle and power options my old canon 580ex with the old radio poppers and it myriad cables and connectors would do. The games moved on that’s all and there is so much choice now.

    What’s great is how the Godox flashes will work for other camera brands with TTL, HSS etc off camera with the appropriate trigger.

    I picked up a pair of Godox V850ii’s to complement the Godox V860ii S. They were like $130 each and are the same as the V860ii minus TTL. HSS etc all work.

    I kept my old Canon trigger which has proved useful as a back-up trigger on my Sony as well as loaning to other togs, allowing us to both use the same strobes, even at different power settings.
