Fred: “We discovered something very important while testing this lens.
With the A7RII, setting EFCS (Electronic First Curtain Shutter) to “On” will affect bokeh rendering when shooting the 50/1.4 ZA wide-open combined with high shutters speeds (> 1/1000s). This is actually true for all large aperture lenses (f/1.4).
Look at the out of focus rendition difference with EFCS set to “On’ and “Off” (at f/1.4):
Of course this won’t be an issue with lenses without EFCS like the original A7R.

Xabier:Let me send you a little video I´ve made with the incredible Sony A7SII. I´ve tested the SLOG 2 & 3 capabilities, as well as it´s 100 fps technology.
The downsides I´ve seen with the A7SII are its poor CDAF and the poor results of the SLOG3 when shooting the skyes, due to it´s 8 bit codec.
Apart from that, it´s an awesome camera: The Lowlight sensitivity is amazing, as well as the superb Dinamic Range and the On-sensor stabilizing system.
