|Our Sony A7II Review|
With its magnesium alloy body borrowed from the Sony A7S, the A7II is heavier than its predecessor and feels sturdier in the hand with the redesigned grip, command dials and shutter.
The A7II boasts a very respectable 24.3MP sensor and will happily shoot 1080 Full HD movies, but with an ISO sensitivity from 50-25,600, this camera is designed for professional photographers looking for a more compact camera system than traditional DSLR bodies.
However, itâ€™s the A7 IIâ€™s really impressive 5-axis image stabilisation system and the improved autofocus system that means it stands out from the crowd and sits as a worthy contender in Sonyâ€™s A7 compact system camera range.
The A7 II sits comfortably in the Sony A7 series of cameras as a sizable improvement on its predecessor the Sony A7. Making use of Sonyâ€™s E-Mount lenses opens up a whole range of shooting possibilities for those looking for a viable alternative to a full frame DSLR, as well as the full-frame specific Sony FE-Mount lenses range.
