Sony A7R II autofocus Preview – Even smoothly with Canon lenses




On June 15 Tweakers attended a meeting at Sony in London, which the new Sony A7R II RX10 II and IV RX100 were exhibited. The A7R Mark II features a full frame backside-illuminated 42.4 megapixel sensor. Compared to its predecessor, it improved body design, with a slightly greater grip and better button layout. The camera is equipped with five-axis in-body stabilization, which works with all lenses. An electronic shutter first curtain- the camera is a lot quieter than previous A7 cameras and in addition there is a completely silent mode, based on a fully electronic shutter. The camera can record 4K video internally.

The event in which we participated, was aimed at retailers, especially retailers of video cameras, but there was also a limited number of photojournalists present. Sony Europe announcement came largely as a surprise, which explains why there were previously few specific rumors. As a result, the test options were limited. The location was indeed the Pinewood studio, which includes the upcoming Bond film recording, but except for the resident Sony office was there for us to see anything publicly. Because the cameras as Sony were not yet ready for production, there were no test pictures or videos are made, at least not on its own SD card.

That’s unfortunate, but it does not mean there is nothing to say about the A7R Mark II. During the test session because noticed that the autofocus of the camera is significantly improved. This is not only interesting for people who just shoot with Sony stuff, but also for users who want to use a different mount lenses, but more on that later. In this short preview, we focus so that new autofocus system. The other innovations hopefully soon addressed in a comprehensive review.
