Sony A99II DxOMark Sensor Review: “New Super-Resolution Contender”

DxOMark published their sensor review and test results for Sony A99II A-mount DSLR camera. According to the DxOMark test results, Sony A99II achieved an overall DxOMark sensor score of 92 points, with a combination of 25.4 bits color sensitivity, 13.4 EV dynamic range, and 2317 ISO low-light score. The Sony A99II offers exceptional overall image quality with excellent headline scores in all categories, although better color depth and dynamic range image quality at base ISO is available on Sony A7RII.

Highlights

  • 42Mp BSI CMOS sensor
  • Improved low-light performance
  • Excellent color depth and dynamic range at base ISO
  • Hybrid cross-type autofocus
  • 4K & 120fps full HD video

Potential drawbacks

  • Electronic viewfinder (EVF)
  • $3198 price tag

Image quality compared:

From DxOMark Conclusion:

“The Sony SLT A99 II gives landscape, architectural, advertising or magazine photographers desiring plenty of pixels for large-scale or high-quality prints another camera to consider. Although its $3198 price tag puts it squarely in the professional or very serious enthusiast category, it’s no more expensive than the 42Mp, $3198 Sony A7R II, and actually cheaper than the 50Mp, $3699 Canon 5DS. The switch to a 42Mp BSI sensor delivers some excellent image quality, with great results both at base ISO and towards the middle of the sensitivity range.”

“With such additional features as a hybrid autofocus system, a 5-axis sensor shift image stabilization, a BIONZ X image processor, as well as internal UHD 4K-video and HD capture at 120fps for slow motion effects, the Sony SLT A99 II offers good all-round specifications. Add to that its 42Mp resolution with exceptional image quality and you get an awful lot of camera for your mone, making the Sony SLT A99 II a serious contender for high-resolution shooting.”

Sony A99II: $3,198 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
