Amateur Photographer (Click here) reviewed the A7rII and writes:
The Alpha 7R II is a huge step up from the Alpha 7R. If you’re sitting on the fence wondering whether the Alpha 7R II is worth changing to from a heavy and bulky DSLR, I’d highly recommend you try it. If you’re anything like me, you’re likely to find yourself checking your bank balance to work out if you can afford it. One thing’s for certain ­– if you do bite the bullet and settle for the Alpha 7R II you won’t be dissatisfied by its results and you’ll be a proud owner of one of the finest compact full-frame cameras available.

Cameraman Justin Dise posted his A7rII review on Explora (Click here):

The Sony a7RII is a powerhouse of a camera that can deliver some of the best Super 35mm 4K video outside of professional cinema cameras—and even then, it can hold its own. Sony didn’t hold back when designing this camera, packing a full-frame BSI sensor, internal 4K recording, 5-axis in-body stabilization, and 42MP still images, to boot. For hybrid photographers/videographers, the camera is a no-brainer. Would I recommend the camera for a video shooter? Absolutely, but you’ll have to weigh the rolling shutter and heat issues into your consideration. Should an a7S owner sell their camera to buy this one? If money isn’t an issue—the a7RII currently costs more than the a7S—then I would be inclined to say yes.

Yole prediction paper: Sony will further increase the sensor quality advantage over the competition!

Share

With the new A7rII Sony made a new step forward to increase their sensor quality advantage over the competition. And as soon as Sony will give us real 14bit RAW we will be able to squeeze out some more performance out of it! Yes that’s me again making some push on Sony :)

What can we expect from the future Sony sensor development? Pierre Cambou from Yole Development is sure Sony will increase the technological advantage over the competition:

“Yole forecasts that the CIS industry will reach $10B this year, with Sony remaining the undisputed world leader –mainly at image sensor level, but gaining strong momentum at camera module level too. And what will Sony’s $4B be used for? Probably to increase capacity, enhance R&D efforts, and further widen the gap between its competitors. It may also be used in applications that will generate a firm lead in automotive, and to develop sensing technologies for consumer and automotive applications. With this bold financing move, Sony is leveraging its leading technology position and demonstrating the confidence it has in its products, its technology, and its future.

Sony’s success story has or will have many consequences on the competition:
1) We already heard that Fuji will use a new Sony APS-C sensor on the X-PRO 2 which is rumored to be released in early 2016.
2) Nikon lost the exclusivity on new Sony FF sensors. I don’t know how Nikon will react to this
3) Also Pentax is rumored to use Sony sensor on their Pentax FF camera coming this fall.
4) Canon…yes Canon…what the heck will they do?
