How many megapixels does the A7r2 have?

You nearly got me there ... it is hard to resist such number magics ... but I will stay with my A7 for a while until there is a not too expensive full frame camera with much better tracking autofocus.

Sure, I sometimes miss in-camera stabilisation and I would be better served with a less reflective sensor, but for now the A7 is my camera!

The last full moon this spring before the midnight sun enters the sky in Svalbard at 78 degrees north - my A7 does an excellent job even at night in the icy cold polar climate. Panorama from four frames. 21 mm lens. Plenty of detail for close inspection of a 2-3 meter wide high quality print!
