One of the film era greats. The 9 was billed as the flagship professional grade camera and its features and build prove it. It didn’t include of the technological advances of the Film 7, but made up for it with sheer quality. Forum posters confirm that it is a faster focusing camera than the 7, which makes it formidable indeed.
It was expensive in its time and aimed at the pro market – so it is harder to find them and they still hold a lot of value. If you do find one, look to see if it comes with lenses. Because of the grade of the camera it typically was used with the top lenses as well. There was also a 9ti version which had a titanium body. Obviously these were quite expensive.
