Here is one of the Amazon reviews

I just purchased the Sony Alpha a7 (in HK it was released Nov 15). The a7 allows for microphone input gain adjustment. However, when this unit is attached, it disables this function in the camera. I couldn't believe it. So, you still need to do some post production to get rid of the hiss. I have contacted Sony about this issue, so hopefully it will be fixed with a Firmware update. But, this is the second MI Shoe product that this item hasn't really been compatible with.

I have shot tons of video with the a77 and the Sennheiser MKE400. Audio was always perfect. I just picked up the MII today. We'll see how it performs. However, I have the Sony wireless mics with a headset input enabling me to adjust the audio level.

I'm not a pixel peeper. I just shoot images.
