On Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2082 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zakzoezie: Its a consumer toy (with still lots of technical flaws) priced as a pro camera. For what you get, price for this toy is outrageous. Same counts for the Sony & Zeiss lenses. Both Sony & Zeiss introduced several incomplete lens lines in low capacity production, instead of one complete lens line in high capacity production. Furthermore, today there is simply no competition within e-mount lens business with other brands producing autofocus lenses and common focal lengths. This is all done to maintain premium prices and milk the consumers ... so no thanks for the offer. But hey maybe one positive note to end this, all this mirrorless tech attempts that are sold will maybe one day become mature thanks to the early adopters actually buying this. And then we can still jump the wagon when all technical flaws are resolved and prices are at an acceptable level thanks to some more healthy competition ... there is simply no competition within e-mount lens business with other brands producing autofocus lenses and common focal lengths.
LOL, are you serious?
Sony is made possible to use AF Canon lenses on Sony body!!! Show me Canon body that can accommodate Sony lenses with AF, please.

rrccad: kind of hard to see this going against the rebel's or Nikon D5xxxx series cameras.

numbers over substance?

both the rebels and D5xxxx series cameras have built in wifi (and/or with NFC), bigger and far better back LCD's that are fully articulated and they both are smaller than this plastic fantastic.

granted it may come in cheaper (probably around $600 USD body only) but still, that's really the target market. the T6i runs around $750, the D5500 runs around $700 and both will probably be as cheap or cheaper by the time the A68 hits the shelves next year as, canon will probably have the T7's out before this is out, as will nikon have D5600 out as well, before or around that time.

it's also curious to do a 4 month preannouncement on this camera - I would assume it's because of all the negative conversation over the A-mount and it's lifespan more than anything, no one's pre-announced a consumer body this far in advance.

D5500 -1ev
T6i -0.5ev
A68 -2ev
Worth noting that A68 needs lens f/2.8 or faster to be able to achieve -2ev

Is there anyone else who would like to see 1.4/50 instead of 2.0/35? Just curious.

Why would owners of A7R II needed SpeedBoster anyway. Why would they need adapter with PDAF ???

12 MPx - right answer to Canon 120 and 250 MPx. Way to go, Sony, we don‚t need another stupid MPx war.

"If you can remember the e-mail and password you used for the store then good for you, but if you're out in the field and can't get your password right, then good luck to you, buddy. Typing in an e-mail and password on the back of a camera just feels silly anyway and can be downright frustrating.

It is nice that the apps are available anywhere with free Wi-Fi, but downloading anything through PlayMemories onto the camera is a frustrating experience. It would be nice to have the option to download the app to an SD card via a PC or Mac, then install it on the camera the same way firmware updates are installed on a number of cameras. "


Hey, DPR, did you try to download this application before you post this article?

For years we have wanted AF just to be fast and accurate. Now, we are unhappy cos AF can not predict where will our subject move?

In reply to:

Rooru S: For E-mount users, I would suggest buying either A-mount version or whatver SLR version you want (EF, F, etc).

Why? Because of two things. First, The E-mount version is simply the SLR lens with a extending barrel to make up for the difference in register distance from flange to sensor on SLR lenses, you don't benefit of any size savings. And second, if you buy the SLR version and you use APS-C cameras, you can use Speed boosters, but you cannot do that with the E-mount version.

I'm quite sure the same applies for Micro 4/3 users.

That make sense. Note, however, that most of A-mount (and EOS as well) lenses does not have aperture ring on the lens body. There are way to control it via adapter, but I prefer classic ring on lens barrel for using on NEX and M4/3. Lenses for Nikon and Pentax more often comes with classic aperture ring.

In reply to:

Marty4650: I never did understand why Sony had IBIS on their DSLRs and DSLTs but not on their NEX and Alpha E cameras. So now a great camera just got better.

A very smart move by Sony.

If Sony is lucky, then Nikon and Canon aren't paying attention again.

I think main reason for not having IBIS in E-mount bodies is to keep these cameras as small as possible. Another reason is overheating, witch is difficult to control in such small bodies. I think Sony has made right decision and introduce IBIS in FF mirrorless. Question remains, will we see IBIS in APS-C bodies.

In reply to:

abortabort: Genuine question, but why are Sony the only brand to offer constant aperture or near constant in these kinds of crop lenses? They have the 16-80mm f3.5-4.5, 16-70mm f4 and 18-105mm f4... yet everyone else seems to be f3.5-5.6 (or not offer one at all)?

Good point. My guess is that Sony is more video oriented that other brands, specially Nikon and Pentax. Sony have great e-mount dedicated video cameras. Note that 16-70mm f4 and 18-105mm f4 are for e-mount (read: for mirrorless cameras) witch are very good for video. Also note that 18-105mm f4 is PowerZoom lens, hence very good video lens.
