New Sony A7II gets tested by TheCameraStoreTV guys and Luminous Landscape.

Reminder: A7II will ship after tomorrow in USA. Preorder it here at Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, SonyStore.

Chris and Jordan from TheCameraStoreTV tested the new Sony A7II. They also invited Canon photographer Kyle Marquardt to review the camera and you will have to watch the video to find out if a Canon PRO photographer can be…converted :)

Also Luminous Landscape got their hands on the A7II and writes:

Less than a week with a new camera isn’t enough for my kind of testing. But even such a short period of time has shown me that with the A7 MKII Sony has finally hit its stride in terms of refining the NEX / A7 design paradigm. The early mistakes of dreadful user interface and awkward controls is now mostly past, and instead the A7 MKII has emerged as one of the most usable mirrorless cameras on the market. The fact it is also smaller and lighter than some Micro Four Thirds and APS-C cameras while offering a much larger and in many cases higher resolution sensor just clinches the deal. With its IBIS the MKII will appeal to a great many users of third party lenses as well as Sony’s A series lenses via an adaptor such as the LA-EA4.

Impressive Sony A7II on sensor stabilization video test with SAL70400G and Minolta MD 135mm lens.

On left 5 axis on and on right 5 axis off (Source: Mobile01).

Note: The A7II is shipping at Amazon Japan. Will ship from Tuesday on Amazon, BHphoto, Adorama, SonyStore!

Here are new Sony A7II stabilization tests:

First the bad news: It’s still not official but it really looks like manual focusing third-party lenses will indeed benefit from the 3 axis stabilization only. But maybe that’s something can easily upgrade in future if SAR reader will make some pressure on them :)

And now the good news: There are new stabilization test videos you have to check out. It really shows how impressive the difference is between having or not having the new A7II on sensor stabilization system. After watching this you will a hard time to buy any other A7 camera without the stabilization!

Amazing! Also the “limited” 3 axis stabilization on the Minolta MD 135mm lens does wonder. One more stabilization test has been posted on Mobile01. Justs croll down to the two (10pics series) of pictures taken with and without the stabilization.

What do you think? If you find more test feel free to post them all on our forum thread: sonyalphaforum.com/topic/135-sony-a7ii-steadyshot-test-la-ea2-sal70400g-ssm-ii/.

New A7II hands-on reports. And win the camera a Sony Electronics’ Alpha Tweet Sweepstakes.

The Sony A7II will ship soon in US/EU and as a consequence more and more reviewers are getting their hands on the camera. Here are two more preview reports:

Steve Huff writes:

Sony is kicking ass and I have yet to use a camera this year that feels as good, looks as nice and performs like this one. No Fuji, no Olympus, No Leica, No Nikon has done it. The A7II makes the Nikon Df feel like a toy in the hand, that is how much better it feels over the A7 Mark I. I love the Nikon Df, it is the only DSLR I would own (and did for a while) but the A7II has shown that Sony still means business and they are not backing down.

Colby Brown writes:

While I am used to the shutter button on my a7r and a7s, the new shutter release button not only feels more natural in its new position, the button itself feels more responsive. It is larger and better built as well, making it easier to press down. While the camera is certainly faster to turn on, I wouldn’t exactly say it has an “instant on” feature. It still has to wait half a second from when I flip the on switch. Either way, there is an improvement.
