The Sony A7II will ship soon in US/EU and as a consequence more and more reviewers are getting their hands on the camera. Here are two more preview reports:

Sony is kicking ass and I have yet to use a camera this year that feels as good, looks as nice and performs like this one. No Fuji, no Olympus, No Leica, No Nikon has done it. The A7II makes the Nikon Df feel like a toy in the hand, that is how much better it feels over the A7 Mark I. I love the Nikon Df, it is the only DSLR I would own (and did for a while) but the A7II has shown that Sony still means business and they are not backing down.

While I am used to the shutter button on my a7r and a7s, the new shutter release button not only feels more natural in its new position, the button itself feels more responsive. It is larger and better built as well, making it easier to press down. While the camera is certainly faster to turn on, I wouldn’t exactly say it has an “instant on” feature. It still has to wait half a second from when I flip the on switch. Either way, there is an improvement.
