Sony a7R II User Reviews

Announced Jun 10, 2015 •
42 megapixels | 3 screen | Full frame sensor

Sony A7R2 has everything right except for the battery performance.  Adding the battery grip will defeat the weight advantage.  It should have use the NP-FZ100 battery. I switch to A7R4 due to 2 reasons - out of my mind 60Mpx and battery performance. A7R2 is now my backup and street photography camera.  Enjoy it and yet hates it that I need to carry 6 spare batteries each full day out in the field.

I vowed that I would skip the A7rIII. I really did. And I almost made it to the IV if it not for a super nice Black Friday deal last year where I could return A7rII and get some store credit if buying a new A7rIII. And since I had bought the A7rII used I had an irrational fear of the thing just failing on me when I would be on a trip. But this is not about the III, its about the II and boy I loved this camera. Lucky sunset shot. Few minutes later the clouds took over. My main usage for this ...

Still one of the best value ways to shoot high res Sony still delivers the most neutral and highest bit depth colours allowing the most brutal PP without damage. The best picture results when processed correctly. Great handling and high functionality. Battery needs improvement (and was in III series)and Sony needs to look to Z6 for ergonomic improvements but remains a tour-de-force and one of the best CSCs out there

I previously had a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS. I know it is quite a leap to have bought the Sony A7R II however I just LOVE it.  It is light compared to the Canon or Nikon that were in the same range of quality.  It is easy to use and the quality of my images have increased by 200%.  I have it on my neck all the time and I am also testing my macro lens (bought a FE 2.8/90 Macro G OSS) I made the leap because I love to take photos of rusted metal, unusual forms and anything that is up close.  I ...

By now, I'm not saying anything people haven't heard: the Sony A7RII has the best FF sensor you can currently buy. Actually, it has a bunch of minor improvements over the A7II... but not much compelling to me. That's why I took so long to get one. I could easily mistake one for the other both in handling and in image quality (as long as I'm not viewing the image too large for 24MP). Aside from a 42MP sensor that's great in low light, the video support is probably the biggest step up -- and it ...

I am very pleased with my A7RII. I use it with the new 24-70 G mostly and it is a little heavy and I wish it had a mount on the lens. The battery life is less than desirable but carrying a spare does the trick and charging the small battery doesn't take long. The small size is not an advantage for me since buttons are not as easily accessible as my previous Canons. The resolution for my application is king!

Before I get accused of being a Sony fan boy in this review, I would like to preface this by saying I was a Nikon shooter for a year, Canon for 5 years, Fuji for 6 months and have now been using this camera for just over a month and I can say that this system is by far the best I have ever seen. Starting with the mirrorless style of the camera, I really dont know why anyone would try to argue that DSLR is better. The ability to see how the picture will turn out before you shoot is an ...

My Sony experience started with the NEX3, then the NEX 6, the A6000, A6300 and A7. Last year, I was agonizing over the question whether to stay APS-C and FF, or just APS-C, or just FF. At one point, I was sure APS-C is all I need. In fact, I sold my A7 which was not bad but behind the a6300 in image quality and speed. The A7 II only added IBIS. Then came the A7RII. When I saw the price tag, I immediately promised myself do not even think about buying it. No way. 42MP are way more than I need. ...

Finally back to the 35mm format where my photography enthusiasm started. - No conversion BS and false confusing statements to care about. - No bad remarks or “wish if would had” crap in my mind, makes me enjoy the photography a lot more, without any technical limits. - The A7R2 is just the perfect camera for me! :) UBL
