Pros: FF of the new guard, an investment for the field of optics, performance at 24mpx respectable

Cons: valid for everything but does not excel at anything, AF still as an old age, too pre-preserving to the first generation

Opinion: As mentioned, it represents precisely the transition between the first geological era of the mirrorless FF and the new modern era. It finally has an AF (why don't tell me that the first generation had an AF, please), but not enough to be able to work on it or shoot at high intensity and speed. The file yield remains as good as in the first series (we are at the level of d750 and higher than 5dmk3 and 6d), with malleable files and neutral colors. He suffered initially from the shortage of lenses, now finally begins to be there a large set (I recommend in particular the samyang 1.4 fixed for the QP report). To this day I consider it a good old age for those who want to launch into the ML FF world and prefer to invest in the kit rather than the car or to those looking for a car on which to take advantage of the focus peaking with vintage lenses: the natural step will be the switch to A73 or A7R3 to savor the real mirrorless revolution

Pros: Lightness, price, possibility of using vintage manual lenses from other manufacturers sold at economic price

Cons: Outdated Technology, limited battery life compared to reflex also entry level, questionable ergonomics

Opinion: I bought this car, used, in October at a good price. I decided to proceed with the purchase because it was a full frame that I could buy at an affordable price and attracted me the possibility of using vintage FF manual optics at a price accessible through cheap adapters. My other machines are APS-C (a Sony A100 and a remarkable Sony A68). We See the different aspects of the machine, compared to the Sony A68, which I was very satisfied and will use as a reference. Ergonomics: Poor, the grip is small and the little finger tends to escape, the use with a tiny skin-like case that makes it a little more full bodied. The position of the keys disorients a little and are not often positioned comfortably, especially the one dedicated to recording movies. In This aspect the A68 is a whole other thing, the A7II scales the low ergonomics with a lower weight, less space and more portability. Construction: Magnesium body, I find it solid and the sensation is totally different from the A68 which is only built in plastic (questionable choice). Menu: Same software, then same menu a bit chaotic. Often There are really incomprehensible abbreviations and I often had to use the online instructions to understand what it was. Rear Screen: I think is acceptable compared to newer machines, excellent compared to A68 (which has a weak point here). EVF: Better than the A68, I don't think it compares to the newer machines. Bright, well readable. If you press in half the shutter button as you were hooking up a subject the refresh rate increases making it more usable in some situations. Autofocus: Good, as opposed to SLRs the AF points occupy most of the sensor surface. It is a little less precise and performing than that of a reflex but it is still good. I Have only one AF lens at the moment (Samyang AF 35mm f2.8) and the AF goes a bit in crisis with low-brightness scenes or when you ask to focus on subjects positioned towards the sides of the image, I don't know what happens with different lenses. With This lens I detected problems even with the AF-C that goes jerky and is not very fluid if it imposed relatively low exposure times, with faster times (1/100 on) The AF is definitely smoother. File Quality: Compared to APS-C The jump is large and perceptible, although it must be said that now the quality of the APS-C sensors is high and are able to produce images of excellent quality. The file is always very malleable and the shadows are recovered well. Good dynamic Range, in general I can get high light exposed correctly and recoverable shadows. The pasta of the image and the colors I like. It Is often read that the colors of the Sony files are questionable or ugly, but shooting in raw and post production can solve any problems, so I find that they are nonsense criticism. Lenses: Expensive ones Sony. More accessible than those of third parties. Give away those vintage manuals, which then is the reason I bought it. I'M using the machine with a Samyang 35mm AF f2.8 (which is compact and surprised me as image quality), an Oly OM 50mm F 1.8 (Nice!), Oly 135m f2.8 and a Zenith Helios 44-2 58mm F2 (Amazing and fun). The use of manual lenses is facilitated by focus peaking and zooming on the image. Battery: The philosophy is different from that reflex, if you do not shoot it goes off, otherwise you eat all the charge. I bought two spare batteries and an external charger. On balance, if you want to move to the FF world, you do not want to spend high sums and above all do not need high performance (this is the crucial point), I think this machine should be taken into account. For the use I do and for my needs by hobbyist is so much stuff, a professional will probably want more.

Pros: Size and weight compared to the same size reflex-attractive price-ease of use with old manual lenses

Cons: Uncomfortable and chaotic menus-battery charger standard

Pros: Image quality, reduced body size for a Full Frame (with a Samyang AF35/2.8fe is very transportable)

Cons: In His hand is not like a D750... For the rest, nothing particular but depends on what you want; It's not perfect...

Opinion: I have been using it for a few months and it was my motorcycle travel companion. After trying everything, using as a criterion the quality of the images with the size and robustness of the instrument, useful and necessary for a trip in motion, I must say (personal opinion not "pontifical") that this A7II, was the best of all that I Had and proved for this circumstance. Excellent Files, well workable and ISO-resistant to the use I have reserved, taking photos of reportage, I never had to push over the 3200 ISO and within the 1600 not known problems. The viewfinder? It will not be a "cinematic" experience but I see no problems in use. AFS is better? Yes, but it depends on what you need to do and I can tell you never cheated on me. Afc? Here maybe there's really better... But it's not a real tragedy! Personally I never use it as instead I do with the A7III. Mf? Fun and facilitated by the assistance and thanks to the stabilizer in the car, the vintage optics or those only MF, are a pleasure. The menu? You just learn! The personalization of the keys allows to sew a machine to measure. The rest is up to us and not how it falls in front of the mirror.... And as a result, it is well used with a few shots because many did not approach the complete photographer... I forgot, it consumes batteries of course! But here, you don't even need to tell what to do...

Pros: An A7 base "Sgrezzata"

Cons: Battery still unsatisfactory, AF does not live up to a PRO use

Opinion: Does it make sense to buy it again? It is a broken A7 of that "Leica" style body and transformed into an almost reflex, with a much more canonical setting of the keys. It has no substantial differences from the previous model, at least at the "final yield" level, which is practically identical. Instead, the ergonomics changes, much more suitable for the various daily mistreations, and the shutter gains 10 years, passing from being an AK-47, to be exploitable even in silent environments. The silent shot, the prerogative of the S series, the R2 and the series 3 is missing. A bayonet is added as it should be in metal, a better AF, and a larger viewfinder. Basically all small improvements that in everyday use are felt, but almost doubling the size of the body. They are two machines with two different philosophies, more than two machines one after the other. The first is the advice for an exclusively vintage use, while this also as the first body of demanding amateurs. Note then how the idea of "mirrorless" with this machine fools a little, because the dimensions do not begin to be more so insignificant. The stabilized sensor doesn't do wonders, it's light years away from true stabilization on the lens, so if you want to buy the series 2 exclusively for the Ibis, think about it better. Stabilizing a FF sensor is not like stabilizing a m4\\3.
