New Sony A7rII tests roundup.

sony-a7rIIgrey

Reminder: A7rII in Stock and shipping worldwide at Digitalrev. Germans have gold box deals on Sandisk card.

LeButler on SonyAlphaForum posted the lust of pros and cons when using silent shutter mode:

Negatives:
-RAWs reduced to 12 bit (reduces dynamic range, though not noticeable in the majority of shots)
-Dark banding across the image under artificial light at certain shutter speeds (which are unpredictable, can avoid completely changing shutter speed)
-Expanded ISO modes not available
-No flash triggering

Positives:
+Silent
+Reduces shot-taking lag to virtually zero
+Less vibration = potentially sharper shots
+Nice little haptic feedback remains when taking a shot (on A7Rii)
+Presumably uses marginally less battery
+Presumably extends body lifetime

Our Sony A7R II and RX10 II hands-on previews continue (Imaging Resource).
How about collecting the information of adapter performance on A7Rii? (SonyAlphaForum).

Christian:A strange image artifact with dotted lines: http://fotoschule.westbild.de/2015/08/erste-eindruecke-sony-a7rii/

Kevin:I’m leaving a series of Instagram (@kevinrwhitley) videos over my initial impressions with the A7R II.  These can also be found on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/kevin.r.whitley. The main difference between these and other reviews is I’m highlighting some of the not-so-great aspects of it that other reviewers seem to be ignoring.  Overall still positive, but just some issues for users to be aware of (e.g. grip issues).

Chris: “Andrea, there’s an easy fix for the long exposure noise, its something Sony cameras do internally every 30 days. Here’s a thread discussing it: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1380165

New DSLR vs Sony A7rII tests by Tony Northup.

Our friend and really independent reviewer Tony Northrup posted that new test video where he again compares the new Sony A7rII with the Nikon D810 and Canon 5DSr. Reminder: Only Store having the A7rII in Stock now is Digitalrev (with worldwide shipment).

Note: With really independent I mean reviewers that don’t are members of any company program and do not get their cameras from the companies for testing. That said being independent doesn’t mean the reviewer is good and a non  independent is bad. Be genuinely skeptical on every test you read :)

A7rII plus super tele lens tests: Canon EF 600mm by Patrick Murphy-Racey. Tamron 150-600mm test by Frydman.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-08-09 um 14.04.25

SAR reader Patrick Murphy-Racey tested the new Sony A7rII with some massive tele lenses:

I think you will dig this video.  I shoot a tennis player with three long lenses that have not been talked about much.  Most of the testing online has been with Canon short glass so I thought it might be nice to take the monster 600L into a dark indoor tennis court and shoot action at 12,800 ISO. The files are pretty amazing from the new camera and end up 120.7 megs each!!! here is the video:

SAR reader Gilles Frydman sent us that nice picture of the new Sony A7rII with Meike grip and the Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SSM superzoom. he also said the “Meike battery pack MK-A7II Pro  which seems to work great, at about 1/3 of the Sony price“. You can see image samples shot with that combo on his Facebook page. You can buy the Meike grip on Amazon US (Click here) or via many eBay sellers (Click here).
