Yannick Ciancanelli tests the A7rII autofocus performance on the massive 600mm Canon EF lens.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-08-21 um 09.49.18

Yannick Ciancanelli (Click here) posted a long Canon EF lens with A7rII autofocus performance test. Along all “normal” Canon lenses tested by Yannick he also had the chance to play with the massive Canon 600mm EF lens (over $10,000 price here on eBay). Yannick writes:

“This stunning lens’ AF, sadly, does not work that well. Focus picks up sometimes. It depends on contrast and subject. Face detection helps a lot. Without it the lens would be lost, but when faces show up then boom it’s nailed. Does not focus in-between shots (High Burst rate of 5fps).”

And here is the video showing the A7rII with the lens:

Dpreview’s autofocus test: “Sony Alpha 7R II can match or beat DSLR low light AF performance”!

Share

A7rII in Stock in USA and Germany too: The A7rII is in Stock at Amazon USA (via third part resellers) at eBay Germany (Click here) at E-infinity on eBay (Click here) and Digitalrev (Click here).

Dpreview posted their big autofocus Sony A7rII test and their conclusion is absolutely sensational:

The a7R II, when paired with a bright lens, can match or exceed the performance of the best DSLRs with respect to low-light AF ability. And we haven’t even shared the most exciting thing with you yet: although in this video we show you results at -2EV, our ‘extinction’ tests measured -3EV as the failing point of phase-detection with the a7R II + 35mm F1.4 combo. That’s very dark, and represents potentially game-changing performance, in our opinion.4

Sounds like for the very first time Canon and Nikon managers will REALLY have to worry about Sony taking away the spotlight from their Full Frame Pro market!

A7rII preorder list:
In USA: at Amazon, BHphoto, AdoramaSonyStore US, FocusCamera, Uniquephoto.
