Test drive: Sony A7R II
Sony brought approximately twenty journalists and reviewers to Portland to try the a7R II and RX-10. I only used the a7R II, mostly with the Sony FE 2.8 35 mm lens (real men use prime lenses).
These are samples of my pictures. I’m not a “real” photographer so if you see anything that’s sub-optimal, it’s probably me, not the lens or camera.
Some of the key features:
- 42 megapixels
- Five-axis stabilization
- Maximum ISO of 102,400
- 4K video recording
Here are some articles from other members of the trip:
Bottom line: much smaller and lighter than the usual DSLR, leading-edge technology, cool but not in-your-face-I-have-more-money-than-brains looks. I’d buy one.
