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.
