Sony A7rII with Leica Summicron tested by DSLRmagazine.
Digglloyd has the merit to have the guts and the skills to highlight both the Sony negatives (SAR article here) and the Sony positives: He just posted (article here) his final thoughts on the A7rII and also noticed one thing:
Something strange happened on my recent trip: I did not see any mis-focused images from the Sony A7R II. I mean, none. Try doing that with a Nikon D810 or Canon 5DS R with an autofocus lens—I have and never come close.
The DSLR is looking like not just a dinosaur, but a lame dinosaur, given these advances. How long will CaNikon watch Sony advance without responding? The Sony A7R II makes outstanding images with low noise and excellent dynamic range at 42 megapixels that are always in focus. Notwithstanding some file quality limitations and disappointing 12-bit behavior in certain situations, nothing else can touch this track record of ultra-high hit rate. And it does so in a relatively compact form factor. I think it is a mistake to ‘diss’ the Sony A7RII for its faults, which most of the time either have a workaround (very careful exposure) and/or are unusual or rare. Trade that off against focus errors of all kinds, size and weight, etc. It’s a fair trade. When and if Sony can fix the few image quality issues, and perhaps add a bit more dynamic range with a Nikon D810 style ISO 64, it’s going to be very hard to argue in favor of any DSLR for 99% of shooters, including my workhorse Nikon D810.
