I keep receiving more reliable info about the new roadmap from Panasonic, Olympus and Sony. All three companies likely will delay the launch of their “major” cameras. The E-M1II and Gh5 will ship in early 2017 only. And it’s likely that they will NOT be announced at Photokina.
And so Sony has the same issue. They may announce the A9 at or shortly after Photokina (yes Sony is known to announce big stuff OFF the shows). But the A9 will also ship in 2017 only. Additional Sony note: The A9 is a temporary name. Not sure this will be the final name used by the marketing strategists :)
