A7rII with canon glass test by Paul Gero!

Share


Sony a7rii with Metabones III and Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II

SAR reader Paul Gero just sent me his feedback about the A7rII with canon glass test he made yesterday:

Yesterday I had a chance to get my hands on the Sony a7rII camera (it’s at Image One Camera and Video in Riverside today (7/3/15) until 5 PM, if you want to try it yourself!). I was especially interested in seeing how well the camera works with a Metabones III adapter and Canon EF glass — since so many pro photographers use EF lenses. I was very pleased with the results and I think Canon pros who want to use the glass they own on the smaller, lighter and full-featured Sony a7rii when it comes out very soon.
Please check out my blog post which includes some still photographs of the camera as well as a couple iPhone videos I did for Periscope yesterday.  Apologies in advance for the audio — busy store — but I think you’ll be able to get the sense that this camera will indeed work incredibly well with EF glass.  Note: the camera is not a final production model so the firmware will be even better and my Metabones probably should have updated firmware too.
Truly excited about what this camera is going to mean to my upcoming photography and projects!
Thanks to Rob Shelley​ from Sony and Shadi Sayes from Image One Camera & Video.

New A7rII extensive autofocus test (in chinese!).

Share

The video you see here on top (via Youku.com) is a very extensive autofocus test of the new A7rII. Sadly it’s in Chinese only so only a small part of our readers will understand what they are talking about. Still you can scroll to the following minutes to see the autofocus speed: Minute 1:15, Minute 2:25, Minute 3:10 and Minute 4,47.

Our reader Jack also provided with a short description of the video (Thanks!):

This video is published by a group of Chinese professional photographer.They tested the A7r2 focusing ability using the native FE 70-200 f4 G lense , Alpha 70-200 f2.8 G lens with LA-EA3 and Alpha 70-200 f2.8 with LA-EA4.It’s obvious that the focusing speed is almost the same no matter using LA-EA3 or LA-EA4.
Besides, they also tested what they call the Eye Tracking AF.We can see that the focusing point  keeps trying to catch the tester’s eyes.
According to the testers, they are the only photographers who are permitted by Sony to release these review videos.So my advice is to hire a Chinese editor and translator because they will release another video about a7r2 using Canon ef lens and Nikon f lens tomorrow.

Is the A7rII closing the gap to DSLR? Thoughts by Matt Granger.

Share

Matt Granger is a long time friend of SAR and one of the few reviewers that I think to be truly independent (hard to find them nowadays). ON the video above he shares his thoughts about the current state of the Sony A7 system. The question is: Beside all the hype for the A7rII is Mirrorles really catching up with the best DSLR on the market?
