New A7II tests: Look how much the sensor moves with the 5 axis stabilization!

FacebookShare

Mark Galer posted a second video (watch on top) explaining the A7II Phase Detection and other new Features (Thanks Mark!). And than there is that very cool video:


It shows how much(!) the sensor moves on the 5 axis stabilization. I am really surprised to see this doesn’t crop the image! That’s good news. And now the possible bad news: DSLRmagazine (translation here) tested the 5 axis stabilization on third party lenses. And well they got the “feeling” that on third party manual lenses where you have to manually set the focal length of the stabilization…well only the three axis stabilization works and not the full 5 axis! But keep that with a grain of salt because:
1) They are yet not 100% sure of that
2) Sony may fixes this in the final firmware version?

Can reviewers and testers please ask Sony about this matter? Thanks!

UDPATE: One more little good news: Imaging Resource compared the A7 vs A7II image quality at ISO 3200 and the A7II seems to have a slightly increased sharpness.

Competition rumors: Also Canon may launches a sort of Sony A9 alike High megapixel camera…

a rendering of an imaginary Canon “A9” alike mirrorles camera made by David Riesenberg.

It’s going to be a very tough battle between Sony and Canon next year. Rumor has it that there will be very soon “leaks” about a Canon Sony A9 alike competition camera. It’s mirrorless, full frame and has a 50MP sensor. The Sony A9 is still scheduled for an early 2015 launch (likely February?).

Mark Galer Alpha Ambassador from Sony Australia shot this A7II hands-on video. From minute 5 you can hear his robotic voice (LOL) and the interesting 5 axis stabilization test with the Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 lens. The difference between having and not having stabilization is quite impressive!
