Product Overview

Sony a7R II is a high-end mirrorless camera in the Sony E-mount system. Introduced by Sony in 2015, it comes with a full-frame sensor with 42 MP (7952 x 5304) resolution and a 2.36 million-dot EVF.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. The Sony a7R II's 5.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
The Sony a7R II comes with 399 autofocus points.

Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
The Sony A7r Mark II has a 42 Megapixel back-illuminated full-frame sensor, 4k video, built-in stabilisation, an electronic viewfinder with a huge image, tilting screen and Wifi with NFC. There’s also the opportunity to switch to an APS-C / Super-35 mode which crops the sensor and the field of view by 1.5 times. The camera is only beaten in resolution by the Canon EOS 5DS(r) with its 50 Megapixels delivering 8688×5792 pixels that can be output in 300dpi at 29x19in.

Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
Sony's Alpha A7r Mark III is a highly capable camera that's equally at home shooting high resolution stills as it is handling fast action or filming quality video. The 42 Megapixel full-frame sensor may be inherited from the Mark II but Sony's improved the processing to deliver superb quality. The ability to shoot at 10fps with confident autofocus makes it surprisingly good at sports, and great for events or wildlife shooting too with its silent shutter. Movie shooters will enjoy good quality 4k along with 1080 / 120p for slow motion, and the camera sports improved controls.

Pros
  • Excellent image quality

  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No interval timer
  • No USB Type-C
