The Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith has posted the first Sony a7RII Field Test review. Sony Alpha a7RII Mirrorless Camera features the world’s first full-frame 42.4-megapixel Exmor R back-illuminated structure CMOS sensor. This sensor design both improves low-light operation and speeds up data throughout, enabling fast high-resolution stills and UHD 4K video recording. Working with the BIONZ X image processor, these images can be produced at sensitivities up to ISO 102,400 and at a continuous 5 fps shooting rate.
Conclusion from Brian Smith:
Unlike previous a7-series cameras that each have particular strengths or features, the flagship a7RII does everything well. Unless you need to shoot in near darkness where Sony A7S still has a slight edge at extreme ISOs, the a7RII would be my choice for everything I shoot.
In addition, Brian Smith says that Sony a7RII has the fastest AF system:
Currently, Sony a6000 has the fastest AF system of Sony mirrorless cameras, but a7RII will be faster.
