Best High-end ILC of 2014: Winner - Sony Alpha a7II

...the Sony Alpha a7 II - a camera released right at the very end of 2014. With 14.7% of the vote, the a7 II just squeaked past the D750 and X-T1 to take top spot, earning your vote for best high-end ILC of last year.

The Sony Alpha 7 II is the follow-up to the original Alpha 7 and adds 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization to its 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor. The a7 II continues to use a Hybrid AF system and Sony claims that it is 30% faster and 1.5X better than tracking compared to its predecessor. From a design standpoint, additional improvements in this model include more rugged build quality, a new front dial, and a relocated shutter release button.

We've not had long with an a7 II yet, but our initial impressions are certainly positive, and we'll have a full review written up very soon.
