Sony Alpha 7R II

Sony Alpha 7R II

Since a few days my cam­era equip­ment has grown again: I added a Sony Alpha a7R II body.

The new body replaces my pre­vi­ous 7R. The range of func­tions has been fur­ther increased. Beside the slight increase of the sen­sor res­o­lu­tion to 42 megapix­els, the sen­sor is now mount­ed mov­able, so that all lens­es are now sta­bi­lized. This works great thanks to the Metabones IV Adapter, which works fine with my 100mm f2.8 macro, the 85mm f1.2L, the 50mm f1.4, the 40mm f2.8 and also with the 17mm f4L TS-E.

More­over, the aut­o­fo­cus is final­ly extreme­ly improved thanks to the 399 phase con­trast aut­o­fo­cus points which are inte­grat­ed in the sen­sor. And last but not least, the high-ISO capa­bil­i­ty of the back­side-illu­mi­nat­ed sen­sor (up to ISO 102.400) is remark­able, which com­pen­sates the lack of this capa­bil­i­ty in my EOS 5DSR. Besides, I can now film in 4K with it…

How­ev­er, the many fea­tures are dif­fi­cult to han­dle because of the still com­pli­cat­ed menu sys­tem, so I will need some time and test­ing. But I think the cam­era will be an ide­al addi­tion to my Canon system.
