Supported in Capture One Express (for Sony)

Sony Alpha a7II is an advanced mirrorless Sony full-frame digital camera with a 23.3-megapixel 35mm sensor and a host of features designed to appeal to professional photographers and photo enthusiasts. It is the world's first full-frame camera with optical five-axis image stabilization, and boasts improvements in both design and autofocus speed. The shutter release, grip and control layout has been updated, the lens mount is now all metal, and the camera is sealed against moisture and dust. The a7II also features a fast Hybrid AF system that boasts a 305 improvement in focusing speed, a 5fps burst rate, and continuous autofocus. It is rapidly becoming the camera of choice for photojournalists as well as aspiring videographers.

What you should know about this camera
· 24.3MP sensor: The a7II's full-frame 35mm-sized sensor captures 24.3-megapixel still images and full HD video. ISO range is 100-25,600, with 16-bit image processing and 14-bit RAW output to preserve fine image detail.
· Fast Hybrid Autofocus: The camera relies on an advanced autofocus system with 117 phase-detection and 25 contrast-detection AF points covering a wide area of the frame. Focus is fast and accurate via an advanced algorithm, and can track fast-moving subjects through the frame. Frame rates are up to 5fps in continuous AF, and when you shoot in JPEG Fine L format burst rate is up to 77 frames.
· 5-Axis Image Stabilization: The a711 houses an all-new 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system that compensates for five types of camera shakes, with a roughly 4.5-stop shutter speed gain. The IS system compensates for pitch and yaw adjustments (well-suited for longer focal lengths), horizontal and vertical shift (more common in macro photography) and roll, which is especially helpful when shooting video. Even better: You can preview the effect of the image stabilization by simply pressing the shutter release button halfway or magnifying the image.
· Vivid video: This camera features high bit-rate XAVC S format HD video with 60, 30 and 24p recording options at 50 Mbps. Picture profiles can be adjusted, and now include S-Log2 gamma setting with a dynamic range of 1,300% of sRGB.
· Big, sharp LCD, EVF: The a7II features one of the highest-resolution eye-level viewfinders on the market, a 2.36 million-dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF, and a high-resolution 3-inch 1, 228.8k-dot tilting LCD monitor that tilts up 107 degrees and down 41 degrees, ideal for reviewing videos and photos.
· A really talented shoe: The Multi-Interface shoe can be used to house a flash, microphone, and other accessories.
· A better body: The camera is constructed from a magnesium alloy top and front cover and chassis; the lens mount has been strengthened, and the entire body has been sealed against dust and moisture.

Carry-Over features
· Other than the above changes, the a7 II offers pretty much the same stellar feature set as the a7, including:
· 1200-zone Evaluative Metering: You can choose from multi-segment, center-weighted or spot metering.
· Area-Specific Noise Reduction: The image processing engine selectively divides the image into areas based on patterns (such as edges, textures and flat areas like blue skies), then applies the most appropriate noise reduction for each area to reduce noise.
· Multi-frame noise reduction: The a7 II composites four shots to suppress noise and raise effective sensitivity in low light without a flash, while the D-range Optimizer helps coax details out of shadows and highlights of contrasty scenes in one shot.
· 16-bit image processing, 14-bit RAW output: 16-bit image processing and 14-bit RAW output help preserve maximum detail and produce images of the highest quality with rich tonal gradations. The 14-bit RAW (Sony ARW) format ensures optimal quality for later image adjustment (via Image Data Converter or other software).
· In-camera RAW converter: Lets you adjust exposure, white balance, tonal curves, saturation, contrast, hue, sharpness, or apply D-Range Optimizer or vignetting compensation.

I jumped ship from Nikon to Sony

After thirty five years as a pro, I let go of all my Nikon gear. Sold off D3x, D800 and all the lens that go with the Nikon system. Was there really anything wrong with Nikon , absolutely not. Just got tired of lugging around all that heavy gear. The camera was huge, the 24-70 was a monster and the 70-200 even bigger and heaver. Guess I just had enought. Sony A7ii , smaller and lighter. The in body stabilization allows me to shoot at lower speeds hand held. The only way to put it is this cam...

Great images, but not too much fun

I replaced the original A7 with this camera, but sold it after about 6 months. The images were awesome, especially with the FE 55mm f1.8 Zeiss lens, but it was too big and heavy and it really never spoke to me. I just didn't want to carry it around and shoot, as I am doing now with my Olympus Pen F. It was versatile and the photos were great, but if you don't want to carry it with you everywhere, it isn't the camera for you.

Sony A7ii is amazing

By

 -  Hobbyist

I am 100% on board with the Sony A7ii the pictures are just amazing , and the ability to adapted other lenses to the body makes the transition a lot easier too . Did my first initial test last night with the Sony 50mm FE f1.8 and it turned out freaking awesome , plus the size just make taking you camera out that much easier verses a full frame DSLR

Nice camera

By

 -  Semi-Pro

I bought this used from Adorama, shipped fast and very secure as usual. Very nice camera, love the upgrades from the A7 like the stabilization and changes of the shutter button position. Great image quality, solid low light and action performance as well. Electronic viewfinder on the sony's is fantastic, can't imagine using a traditional one ever again. I've been shooting Sony for years and continue to be impressed by their innovations. This camera is very light, I was surprised how small it was even next to my a6000. Fits the hand nicely, perfect for long shoots or paired with a battery grip. Can't go wrong for the price either.

My bag now consist of Sony A7ii , Zeiss 55mm 1.8, Zeiss 24-70 f4 , 70-200 f4, a remote trigger, a flash when needed, and a tri pod.

two steps forward one step back

By

I passed on the original a7 but decided to give the mk 2 a try as I really wanted a camera to use my Leica lenses on. I knew within moments of taking the camera out of thw wrap I had made a mistake. The mk2 has gained a lot of weight and bulk. Every time I picked it up during my testing I was amazed at the weight. Yes, it's lighter than a full frame dslr but not by much, just 5 ounces ligher than a Nikon D750 and not that much smaller either. And the battery consumption is terrible, you'll need 2-3 spare batteries compared to just one for the D750. The lenses is the other problem. The native Sony lenses are very expensive and in most cases are the same weight and sizea (the 70-200 f4 and 50mm f1.8 are the same weight and size as Nikon equivalent) and trying to use my Leica lenses was a joke. It might be fine for video but for stil photography one must open the lens wide, focus, then stop the lens down to taking aperture, then start the whole process over for the next shot. No thanks.

Nice Improvement On The Original

By

 -  Hobbyist

If you already own a Sony A7, the new A7 II will be very familiar. No dramatic changes to the design or software menus. There is the addition of a fourth Custom Button, a bigger grip and better shutter release placement, along with a more textured finish are the most obvious changes. But when you pick up the camera you will definitely notice that it is slightly thicker and heavier than the original A7, but on a positive note it does feel more solidly build. The big change of course is the addition of an in camera sensor based image stabilization system, which seems to work well. Another improvement that I really enjoy is the increased speed of the continuous shooting mode. Of course Sony still does not provide a external battery charger with the camera, which I find ridiculous considering the camera's price. And it wouldn't be a Sony camera without the extremely poorly written instruction manual with minimal explanations of the "product's" features. Sony refers to the camera as "the product" in their manual. Anyway, I would have given this camera five starts except for the additional weight that it picked up during the upgrade process. Bottom line; this is my fourth Sony Full Frame camera and my favorite to date, and I have no regrets about my purchase. I would strongly recommend purchasing a second battery and charger.

Questions about this item:

George M  hello, is there an available cable release for this camera the a7II?
JAMES L  no cable release but several wireless remotes are available.
ROBERT M  The Sony RM-VPR1 works on the A7II. Sony may have other electronic releases that work as well. There is also a RMT-DSLR2 wireless remote that works with the A7II.
CHRISTOPHER C  Yes. Vello makes one: Vello RS-S2II Wired Remote Switch for Select Sony Cameras with Multi-Terminal (you may have better luck at B+H or Amazon though)
Lawrence G  After reading my previous reply, should add...there are actually 2 downloads. One is to the apple/android device I mentioned in the reply. What I omitted was the download through Playmemories that adds the feature to the camera and it's menu system (if not already there). It is easy too do and covered in the original documentation.
Lawrence G  There may be some 3rd party that connects in the hdmi like I used Camcorder on my Nikon (doesn't support Sony) but I use my iPhone as a cable release. Best part is, it is free. Download the PlayMemories app (apple or android) and just make sure the device is connected to the wireless signal that the camera emits as you launch Playmemories. It is quirky but go into setup and change as appropriate. Also, it overrides the camera so you can't change the camera settings (other than lens zoom) while remote shutter is active but can change them on your phone/tablet.Also, a frustrating part, it remember settings from last session and starts there as opposed to current camera setting before activating Playmemories, so may have to make adjustments. To regain control of your camera you have to exit the app by exiting from camera menu.
lucky guy 1948 l  I have a Sony a6300 and am considering moving up to the Sony A7II. I have three lenses, FE 50 f1.8, E 16-70 f4.0 ZA OSS and FE 70-200 f4 G OSS. The 50mm and 70-200mm are labeled 35mm Full Frame on the box. The 16-70 isn’t. Will my 16-70 work on the full frame A7II body? Thanks for your insight.
Pete G  Yes it will, in ASP-C Mode.... you will have to change your camera settings to ASP-C which will result in a (approx) 24-105mm focal range
lucky guy 1948 l  Got it! Thank you for your input.
SERGIO P  Yes, A7II body will accept those lenses perfectly, on the 16-70 will use only the apsc portion of the sensor, but its automatic now, camera recognizes the lens and makes the adjustment (or via menu). Great upgrade!
lucky guy 1948 l  Glad to hear that it will work and it's a great upgrade. Thanks for your input.
Barry T  No, it will not, in full frame mode.
lucky guy 1948 l  Thanks for your input.
PHYLIS J  Hi Lucky Guy, I'm not Phylis but I'm the recipient of that a7II a couple of years ago. The short answer to your question is -- yes, it will work, Any E mount lens should work with the a a7II -- but the longer answer is, your cropped-sensor lens may not work *as well* as it performs on your a6300. This is because the a7II has to crop any image taken with that lens pretty drastically, and so, instead of getting 24.3mp as you would with an FE (full frame) lens, you'll get only 12mp or maybe even 10mp. I realize this is a bit of a heart-breaker, because I have the very same dilemma with my beautiful, fast-focusing, tack-sharp Zeiss Touit 32mm E-mount lens. You didn't ask me if the a7II was a good idea, but forgive me if I butt in and offer an opinion. Were I you, I'd pass on the a7II, which has been out on the market since 2014. Unless I'm mistaken, your a6300 has superior focusing abilities, both in number if points and in speed of shooting, Thus I would opt for the a6300 in place of the a7II for wildlife and sports. I'm not dissing the a7II, which is a fantastic camera, but the a6300 is more recent, lighter, smaller and can take full advantage of your 16-70mm. I'd pass on this deal and perhaps wait for the a7III, which may come our way within the next 12 months,
lucky guy 1948 l  Thank you for your detailed answer regarding my inquiry. I also appreciate your "two cents" regarding my dilemma. The thought of upgrading to a full frame body and the possibility of having to purchase a full frame walk around lens, 24-70/24-75, is out of the question now. I will keep my eyes peeled for a a7III in the future. Thanks again and happy shooting!
C WILLIAM D  I'm not familar with your lens, so the best thing is to look at its specs on the Adorama website or query their staff.
lucky guy 1948 l  Thanks. I'll contact them when they get back from holiday tomorrow.
MEL S  Great camera. Take the lens to the camera store and try it on the 7 I.
lucky guy 1948 l  Thanks for the reply. I will.
Richard P  I no longer have the camera, but the regular 16-70 f4.0 lens will work, though in crop mode. It won't be the full 24.3MP, but I think it is around 12 or 16MP. Good usable images, and smaller as well. Hope this helps and good luck.
lucky guy 1948 l  Thanks!!
Binit K  Is it different from ILCE7RM2 model?
Barry T  Yes, very different. The ILCE7RM2 is the Alpha 7R ii camera, with the latest 42MP sensor, etc. This A7 ii has the older 24MP sensor.
MEL S  Go to the Digital Photography Review which recently had a very detailed comparison of these two cameras. It will tell you the technical differences and similarities. Good luck.
