It is important to note that even though I did encounter a variety of small issues, the image quality makes many of these just not worth worrying about, and I would have no problem recommending this camera to most people. The only reservation I would have is with photographers who solely shoot in a studio, as a full-sized DSLR with proper ports, a more balanced build, and an optical viewfinder may benefit them, as the weight-savings of the mirrorless design doesn’t really matter too much. In the end, Sony has released a truly impressive camera, and one that I expect to find at or near the top of many “Best Cameras of 2015” lists at the end of this year.
Overall, despite the few shortcomings, the A7R II is well worth its asking price. It’s not going to replace a main body for many event or sports shooters, but most everyone else will be quite pleased with what Sony has put in this camera. Landscape photographers especially will love the wide dynamic range and exceptional detail. While it’s not perfectly executed, the Sony A7R II is currently the best mirrorless camera on the market. If you can swing the price of the camera and the price of the outstanding glass needed to fully realize its potential, it’s well worth a look for the serious shooter.
I currently have the a7R, seriously thinking about getting the a7Rii. I own a few Minolta lenses. I read that with the new AF on the mark ii, I only need to buy the sony LAEA3 adapter and then I can use my old lenses. It is a given that this works with the newer […]
So my a6000 is all of one week old, and while trying to get a closeup at the Denver Zoo yesterday I dropped it about 6 inches without a lens on it (while changing them out). The good news: Camera is fully functional. No mechanical damage to be found. The camera fell on […]
Well at last got some decent weather to get out with the new A7Rii and 16-35 f/4, and was given a nice few days of fiery sunsets, so thought I would share a shot here.... Must admit finding the camera a real star and getting some nice results with it. Technical details - […]
Anyone have used the Fotodiox A to Emount adapter? Is it a good buy? I wanna try out those A lenses for my A6000.
