Sony a7RII Review at DPReview: Gold Award! 90% Overall Score!

DPReview published their full Sony a7RII review. The Sony a7RII full frame camera gets an impressive 90% overall score and gold award from the experts at DPReview.

90% Overall Score:

The a7R II brings 42MP stills and 4K video to a small, lightweight body. Electronic shutter and in-body image stabilization make for high quality images and video you’ll work harder to get, if you get it at all, from comparable DSLRs. BSI-CMOS gives the a7R II class-leading low light performance and respectable dynamic range. The a7R II also introduces disruptive on-sensor phase detection AF, with the widest coverage of any full-frame camera, precise focus on eyes, professional AF results in video, and the ability to focus non-native lenses.

Good for: Portrait, wedding, event, newborn and, generally, photojournalistic shooters with heavy demands on accurate AF with fast lenses. Landscape shooters wanting the freedom of various lens families.

Not so good for: Sports photographers, wildlife shooters, and anyone looking to follow subjects meticulously during continuous bursts.

Gold Award!

The a7R II pushes the boundaries of not just mirrorless, but also cameras in general. It has many new features that photographers of the future will wonder how they ever lived without. And while skimping on simple common-sense core features like direct AF point selection or touch-based AF is bordering on inexcusable at this point, much like some aspects of the ergonomics, the a7R II garners our top award – and one of our highest ever scores – for its sheer photography-accelerating technical prowess.

Surprised? Of course… NOT!

Hot deal: Sony a7RII: $3,198 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
