Slides from the Sony A7sII presentation!



The new Sony A7sII can now be preordered at Sony A7sII at Amazon, BHphoto, FocusCamera, Adorama and in Europe at WexUK. In Asia soon at Digitalrev.

Bruno from Lesnumeriques posted those slides from the official Sony A7sII presentation. There are a couple of interesting insights:

  1. The Large sensor video camera market is increasing (P.S.: larger than 2/3 inch sensor)
  2. In Europe most A7s buyers were professionals
  3. A7sII has 2 stops ISO advantage over the new A7rII

Still Planet5D has some doubts about the new A7sII: “The New Sony A7s II is Great, But Is It Awesome Enough To Get You To Upgrade?”.

Leica SL system will compete against the Sony A7 system for triple the price!

Bildschirmfoto 2015-09-23 um 10.22.47

In two weeks from now Leica will launch a completely new system camera with new mount. And it can be considered to be the real first Sony Full Frame E-mount competition. The Leica camera will be mirrorless and not(!) a rangefinder Leica M. It will be Full Frame, have a new mount, full autofocus support and EVF. And according to the camera name will be “Leica SL”. This because the design is inspired by the Leicaflex SL film cameras (like the one you see on the picture on top).

The one big thing that will make it NOT a Sony competitor is the price. The body only will cost 2-3 times more than a Sony A7 camera!
