Dpreview about the new A7rII: Did Sony just do the impossible?



A bit unusul for Dpreview they posted an Opinion post for the new Sony A7rII camera.

42.4MP… ignoring medium format, who would’ve thought that we’d have to call that not class-leading? You can thank the Canon 5DS and 5DS R for that, which the a7R II falls short of with respect to resolution. And yet, in almost every other respect, the sensor in the a7R II is bound to outclass the 50.6MP sensors in Canon’s latest high-resolution beasts.

One could remark that in challenging the giants, Sony must innovate to offer a competitive advantage. And one would be absolutely right. But the level of innovation and effort that we’re seeing here is formidable. I haven’t even touched the surface in this opinion piece

And Trustedreviews also got his hands on the A7rII and writes:

The Sony Alpha A7R II is a dream camera for many. It takes everything that made the A7 and A7R so important, then adds and improves so much it comfortably outpaces the rate of improvements we see from Nikon and Canon in their DSLR ranges. Sony is not treading water.
This is a system camera that should interest professionals as well as just keen hobbyists, while its impressive video skills mean it’s anything but a stills-only specialist.
