DC.watch posted that set of “real life” A7m2 pictures from the presentation in Tokyo. The image on tops shows the A7m more protruding grip (camera below) compared to the current A7. This makes it possible to put the shutter button on the way more comfortable top of the grip. it will also make it easier to hold the camera with larger lenses attached.

The Sony A7II has been officially announced at Sony Japan! I will now continually update this post with info. Very strange that we have a “pure” Japanese announcement only!

Preorders:
Available in Japan only via Amazon Japan.

Press release:
A7II press and images at Sony Japan.
Image samples here at Sony Japan.

Hot notes:
This is a Japan announcement only and no other site has any info yet
The A7II indeed has an amazing 5 axis stabilization!
It has a faster hybrid AF.
It records XAVC-S (See specs below)
There are also many of small design change (see pictures below)
Release date for the camera is December 5.
Price is 190,000 yen (current conversion: 1300 Euro or $1,600). Although I am sure price in Dollar will be lower
Sony Japan also announced the new 70-300mm II lens (article on SAR here).

In deep details:

1) 5 axis stabilization:
There is a special page on that at Sony Japan (google translation here). It works up to 4,5 stops of correction (in video up to 5 stops). Shake correction can be checked in Live View too.

2) Hybrid AF:
Sony says the A7II autofocus is 30% faster than on the previous A7. And also the subject acquisition performance and motion tracking performance has been  improved.

3) Body changes:
Finally the shutter button is on the place where it always should have been…on top of the grip :)
The body also has another texture
Grip is now better suited to hold larger lenses too (so says Sony)

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
