A7rII with canon glass test by Paul Gero!


Sony a7rii with Metabones III and Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II

SAR reader Paul Gero just sent me his feedback about the A7rII with canon glass test he made yesterday:

Yesterday I had a chance to get my hands on the Sony a7rII camera (it’s at Image One Camera and Video in Riverside today (7/3/15) until 5 PM, if you want to try it yourself!). I was especially interested in seeing how well the camera works with a Metabones III adapter and Canon EF glass — since so many pro photographers use EF lenses. I was very pleased with the results and I think Canon pros who want to use the glass they own on the smaller, lighter and full-featured Sony a7rii when it comes out very soon.
Please check out my blog post which includes some still photographs of the camera as well as a couple iPhone videos I did for Periscope yesterday.  Apologies in advance for the audio — busy store — but I think you’ll be able to get the sense that this camera will indeed work incredibly well with EF glass.  Note: the camera is not a final production model so the firmware will be even better and my Metabones probably should have updated firmware too.
Truly excited about what this camera is going to mean to my upcoming photography and projects!
Thanks to Rob Shelley​ from Sony and Shadi Sayes from Image One Camera & Video.
