Sony A7 Mark II Review – Stable themselves




In Summary
Sony A7 II has against the original A7 some changes, such as increased grip, a stronger body and an additional programmable button. Because the sensor and image chip are unchanged, the image quality is virtually the same. The autofocus is somewhat improved, but still a bit slow for a camera in this price range. The built-in five-axis stabilization is by far the most exciting feature of the camera. It allows you with every lens longer hand-held shooting and you have more freedom to certain settings, such as a small aperture or low iso. Unfortunately the camera is therefore risen in price.

The cameras of Sony’s A7 series for some time on the market and partly discussed earlier on Tweakers. The A7 Mark II is an improved version of the original A7. It includes a custom body, more programmable buttons, more comprehensive video features and improved autofocus. However, the most prominent in the crop improvement is the addition of ibis either in-body image stabilization. This technique we already know from Sony and Pentax DSLR’s, System Olympus cameras and a few Panasonic. With the introduction of the A7 II is this feature for the first time in a full-frame system camera and that is unique. Hence, in this review we concentrate on this innovation, though we also cast a brief glance at the improvements.
