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.

This is an intermittent problem, but it seems like it should just switch when I put my eye to the viewfinder, but it […]
Enjoying a match-up of A6000 with the Canon FD 300mm f2.8, altho a bit heavy handheld, esp front end glass, typically on a monopod. Was once a go-to lens for sports, and now wildlife. Totally manual. Shot this at f4 with 2x in-camera zoom extension from about 45 yards, ISO 400, and 1/800th.
I've had my Sony A7s for a year now and within the week of getting it noticed that I had a hot pink dead pixel smack dab in the middle of my sensor..I noticed this while reviewing footage after a long day shooting a short... I was pretty upset but mostly just because my brand […]
