Dpreview: The Sony A7rII is the best camera of the year!

Share

Bildschirmfoto 2015-11-26 um 06.53.23

Dpreview (Click here) just claimed the A7rII as best camera of the year in the over $2,000+ category!

The Sony a7R II wins this group for many reasons: it is arguably the most innovative, most improved, and houses the most features of any camera in this category. 399 PDAF points offer the largest frame coverage and truly challenge full-frame DSLR AF. We were in disbelief at the incredibly high AF hit rates we observed across multiple shoots, so we baselined the system against DSLRs in a slew of continuous AF tests to find that, sure enough, the a7R II challenges some of the best DSLRs, even in low light. Continuous Eye AF is a boon for candids of even moving subjects, and better-than-DSLR AF accuracy ensures critical focus for shallow depth-of-field applications. Many of these AF benefits disruptively carry over to 3rd party lenses when using electronic adapters, an industry first. 

A7rII store list:
In USA: at Amazon, BHphoto, AdoramaSonyStore US, FocusCamera, Uniquephoto.
In Europe at Amazon DE, Amazon UK, Wex UK and ParkCameras.
In Asia at Digitalrev, CameraPro.

(SR4) New Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 FE lens gets listed at Sony Assist system!

Share

SEL24-70mmG

The Sony Assist website (access for Sony employees only) has now listed a new FE lens! It’s the long-awaited 24-70mm f/2.8 G Full Frame E-mount lens! There is yet no image or other detailed spec of the lens but if it’s listed it means it surely is going to be announced soon (between now and CES in early January).

I thank the source for sending me this and I hope he can find some more lenses on the database. He should check for SEL1635G, SEL8514G and some more combinations ;)

Thanks!

A gentle request to all bloggers copying my content.

To Bloggers:
Sorry to bother our normal SAR readers with that post. But lately a really impressive amount of sites is constantly re-posting my news without mentioning my site as source of the information. And often they do spam forums and social networks and do “sell the news” as they would have found it by their own.
I do work hard to get information in advance and I would appreciate if bloggers finding the news through my site would kindly link me back. For example you could write: “found via SonyAlphaRumors.com“.

Keep in mind that often sites do also reuse my own created image compositions, my text or even “SAR tagged” links. So it’s easy to track back SAR as source :)

The same rule also applies for me. I do write over 1,000 posts per year and sometimes it happens that I mistakenly link to the wrong original source. If that happens please send me an email at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com and I will fix this.

Thanks You all for your understanding. And now back to a nice rumor coming soon… ;)
