Sony a7RII Reviewed by Ken Rockwell: It’s for Hobbyist and Not for Photographers

The new Sony a7RII is a true Game-changer, and DPReview said “Sony’s Alpha 7R II breaks a lot of new ground in terms of photographic technology “. And lots of news said the new Sony a7RII is amazing and it is the killer of Canon EOS 5DS R and it can even beat the Nikon D810. But today there are some different voices from Ken Rockwell saying that the new Sony a7RII is not as good as same priced DSLR and it is for Hobbyist and Not for Photographers.

A photo hobbyist is someone who loves talking about pixels, software, apps, bit depths and especially loves playing with a zillion different brands of lenses on adapters. That’s why hobbyists and gizmo fans love this camera so much.

Hobbyists are completely different from photographers, photographic artists or pro shooters. The problem with the A7R II for use by a photographic artist like myself is that while A7R II images look great, its colors never look as great in real-world shots as I get directly from my Canons and Nikons. Most people are hobbyists and won’t notice the subtle things I do, and therefore I certainly recommend the A7R II, but for serious work, the Sony isn’t there yet.

I think all the Sony fans will not like to read this! I have to say Ken Rockwell made this statement depends on his personal tastes. So take it easy when commenting this.
