Lots of people want to know the answer of this question: Can mirrorless cameras focus in as dim light as DSLRs? Today DPReview posted the Sony a7RII low light autofocus review and the results is absolutely sensational and may surprise you: Sony Alpha 7R II can match or beat DSLR low light AF performance.
The a7R II, when paired with a bright lens, can match or exceed the performance of the best DSLRs with respect to low-light AF ability. And we haven’t even shared the most exciting thing with you yet: although in this video we show you results at -2EV, our ‘extinction’ tests measured -3EV as the failing point of phase-detection with the a7R II + 35mm F1.4 combo. That’s very dark, and represents potentially game-changing performance, in our opinion.4
