Review Sony a7R ii Mirrorless Camera

WOW. Unbelievable. This camera is unbelievable.

Sony ILCE7RM2/B a7R II Full-Frame Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera 42 megapixel

The Sony A7R II is the first digital camera I really like and can live with. It was a slow, clunky focusing camera with an amazing sensor. I liked the mirrorless concept, so I tolerated its faults. The mark ii version is a vast improvement; about 5 generations ahead of the old one. Sony has fixed just about everything about A7R, while adding some unique features. a professional photographer, videographer and educator in the media field must have this camera.

Reviews :

  • Fast autofocusing even with adapted lenses

  • This camera feels good in my hands, much better than the earlier A7 cameras. This is a well built camera.

  • This is the first camera to shoot as unobtrusively as my rangefinder film cameras, except that I get a really nice preview. DSLRs were always old technology slapped onto modern technology. I hate DSLRs because you constantly need to 'chimp' and take your eyes away from the viewfinder to check exposure. With mirrorless, you can get a full what-you-see-is-what-you-get preview before hitting the trigger. No need to review for focus or exposure.

  • DR of the sensor is astounding. I'm considering not using grad nd filters anymore. Ignore people obsessing over lossless RAW.

  • Soft shutter finally gets rid of camera shake on long lenses. I repurchased the 70-200 f/4, which works worlds better than on the mk1. Silent shutter allows hand held exposures that are super slow. e-front curtain shutter has a nice quick chirp sound, vs the old clunky a7r that drove me nuts.

  • The new viewfinder more improved then you can initially tell. When turning a polarizer, for instance, I can see the change in sky much better. The screen is sharper, bigger, and very high resolution. I can distinguish background blur from whats in focus, even with a 16mm at f/4. I can manually focus accurately without focus assist (but I do have very good eyes).

  • The sensor stabilization really works. Works seamlessly with Zeiss lenses with stabilization (btw, upgrade your 24-70 to v2 firmware, I had already done so. Some people have focus issues, that is why!).

  • ISO performance is great, but I can't compare since I mostly only use 100-400 iso.

  • More lens choices coming soon. Sony and Zeiss are dedicated to the e-mount system.

  • Knock-off accessories are really good, and most from a7r work with a7rii

  • The camera is now lightning fast and super responsive. This is from the combination of fast shutter and focus.

  • Lots more settings and customization. I spent a good 4 hours customizing each switch. Then, I programmed the 1 and 2 dial for switching between tripod exposures and hand held. Lots more bracketing options. Bulb mode works better with wireless remote.

  • Focusing is great. Really great, even in low light with the f/4 lenses. My intention is to only use native sony lenses. The real focusing system works much better for closeups with wide angles, and other situations where the a7r struggled. You can disable the video button. The list goes on and on.

  • Light meter. This doesn't get enough attention, but the meter is sooooo more accurate in mirrorless cameras in general, especially with portraits.

  • Build quality is terrific. Gone is the twisty, bendable lens mount. Too bad they didn't use real gaskets (although tight build is important for good weather sealing).

Sony A7R II is simply amazing both with stills and video. There is nothing else on the market that can deliver this level of quality for both. Is it the BEST at either? Maybe. If not, its pretty damn close.
