Let’s see how difficult it would be to capture solid sports action with the new Sony a7RII. Patrick Murphy-Racey did the first Sony a7RII sports shooting with long glass and EOS adapter. He said he love the new chip that allows for both large files with high quality AND low light sensitivity. It was pretty amazing to shoot at 12,800 ISO in the dark indoor courts and use the exposure of 1/1250th @ f/4 and have it actually work!
A77II is a great performer as long as you are outside or can use below about 1600 ISO. Above that, it falls apart fast! A99 is an amazing camera too but the sensor is going on five years old… A6000 is still king for sports action shooting but the A7RII is showing Sony can really learn fast. now that they have the massive file thing out of their system, perhaps now they will look at upping FPS and that first frame acquire….
