Pros: amazing image quality, best resolving power of any camera Ive ever used. can be adapted to use any and all other brands of lenses. Impressive low light capability. lighter than most DSLR's Too many options to mention

Cons: IN camera HHS would be the only thing I would change

Opinion: I have had this camera for a week now and moved over from the Sony A99. the low light capability, the resolution quality it all surpasses what I was hoping for. with the firmware update 14 bit RAW is now available which makes the camera even more forgiving. All in all its a great package that I will be pushing the limits for the next few years. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone doing commercial work

Pros: Overall build quality, sensor quality and available functionality

Cons: Poor battery life, single memory slot and AFC management

Opinion: Purchased in early 2020 to complement it with the Nikon D810, I must say that the files it churns out are even better than those that the D810 produces both for the ease of processing and for the quality that they have especially at high ISOs. Also used with the Commlite Pro V6 adapter, it allows me to use all my Nikon G optics with performance almost similar to the original. It's definitely not a machine suitable for sports photos or photo hunting, for these uses there are definitely better performing machines. The AF works very well even at low lights and with native optics there is also the functionality of eye AF. Used with both native optics and adapted optics, it churns out extremely sharp rows especially in landscape photos and portraiture. It can be used quietly as an all-round camera even in travel reporting. Because I chose Sony instead of the Nikon Z7, because in the face of similar performance, I have a more mature system, with a greater choice of native optics and which today is located at much lower cost than the Z7. Having to use optics adapted with similar performance, you might as well use them with an adapter towards a more mature and complete system.

Pros: File quality, high iso hold, dynamic range, compactness and lightness, stabilization, viewfinder

Cons: Improved ergonomics, poor autonomy

Opinion: I don't think it's the extraordinary quality of the files coming out of this 42 mpx full frame sensor. The jpeg is already excellent, from the RAW come exceptional results, even from the compressed, stratospheric and beyond the common needs from the uncompressed RAW. I preferred it to the Sony A 7iii for the greater definition, the best sight and because it uses the same batteries as the A 6000, which I use as a 2nd body, which I stocked. If we add the 4k filming capabilities, the stabilization in the room and the price at which you can currently buy, I would say that it is difficult not to consider it a good purchase. And then, what do you want me to tell you, I seem to go out with an analog reflex of the 70s for size and weight, and this is absurd precisely because they have taken off the mirror and the pentaprism!

Pros: Raw quality, resolution, solid, reliable, fantastic sights, high iso, shadow/light recovery in Raw, endless "empty" shutter button.

Cons: Raw from over 80MB for photos, buffers not up to par even for individual photos, battery life, AF in low-light, shot noise,

Opinion: I've been using this machine for many months now, and I can only talk about it more than well. It has its small flaws but nothing tragic, most criticize the Sony menu but did not understand that those cryptic menus will be set only to set the machine body the first times, because after just use the shortcuts and function keys to recall quickly the most used functions, and in particular the functions at the bottom that you see in the viewfinder and in the display are totally customizable for photo or video use just JUST customize that little panel, done this in the menu you will not enter it almost more. There are tons of settings suitable for any user. Video side I do not use it , but I did a few tests just to see this 4K super-35 at 100mb/s and I must say I exclaimed woooooow when I saw the video on monitor. That said, the machine body gives a breathtaking feeling, once taken in hand you feel with how solid and insanity has been built, the sensor has a dynamic range from fear , an example: I took a photo for an indoor baptism with 2 flashes , but having the trigger with dead batteries I do not start the flash and underexposed shot of at least 6/7 stop (I had the eyes of the baby in focus looking at me curious, a wonderful shot ) I almost knocked down the flash, nothing I go to the PC Open PS and I open the Raw file. I'm just telling you that I've raised the exposure to about 6 stop and the file not only doesn't have any kind of grit even in the low lights but it maintains a resolution and a fantastic detail ( tamron 28-75 2.8 ) and the photo looks taken with the correct exposure. Absurd guys, I was really stunned. One thing to get used to is the shutter button that doesn't have the end of the ride, that is, it doesn't do the classic CLIC. Sony says it was made to reduce the micromove even more. Next, burst unusable because of the ridiculous buffer (ridiculous is a compliment), but since it's not a photojournalism machine I don't care that much. Autofocus is the best in AF-C, precise and fast, eye-af also fast and always accurate, ridiculous battery (I use battery grip for convenience having big hands and zoom goals). It holds the iso well , I took up to 10,000 in an event in almost dark conditions and the grain had not spoiled the photo, although it was very accentuated, in this really low light situation the AF gave me not a few problems but it was dark dark. Scary Raw file, very detailed, very workable and 42 megapixel you want more? It is perfect for any use (non-sporting) wedding ceremonies etc. I will switch to the R4 when prices drop. A monstrous machine anyway.

Pros: Sony a7RII, the top of the top: Resolution, features, autofocus, the first backlit FF, Color old mold...

Cons: Well, apart from the batteries, ISO, and af, the real cons are the cryptic menus and the buffering of writing on the cards... Then the rest doesn't matter

Opinion: Everything was said, but just everything about this camera. A Machine that I looked for, wanted, and in the end I have it with me since March 2017. After a first approach in the world Full Frame, mirrorless and Sony (owning for four and a half months the a7SII and a year a reflex canon), I definitely step into this world thanks to this camera taking advantage of what not only my way of doing photography (which always comes before the equipment) but also for what the camera offers the photographer its true technological and visual potential. I must admit that I found my death with both the a7RII and the a9 the following year. But what struck me about this camera? The resolution. It must be said that I know very well the whole R series of the alpha 7, in 2016 I took the R mk1, but I immediately sold it because of a yield not up to expectations due to the presence of the filter passes optical bass. But with the R2 I discovered an immediate felling, establishing a close bond between me and the camera. The yield is better than the first, and amazing, for me, higher than the R3. You can see the crunchiness of the 42 mpx already at a glance, which with the R3, there is but slightly lower than the younger sister. Despite owning the a9, the machine from the best af in the world to the same/or higher than the D5 and 1DXII, the autofocus of the R2 I appreciate it much more for what it can do. Ok every now and then some slight uncertainty in some situations of different lights does, but thanks also to the new sony optics with the XD Stepper Motor (always SSM) and also those that are coming out (in addition to the batis and art of the sigma), in addition to the fact that this is the first ff retro illuminate af is accurate and accurate. On the ISO estate I do not unbalance much, it is true that already the noise is visible at 3200, but it is compensated very well, which can be snapped even at ISO 6400 and only in exceptional cases at 10000 iso (max limit) and paradoxically, the ISO seal is better this than version 3. Does anyone say the sonys have a bad color? well it depends, I personally like me (don't ask me how structured the color of the R2 is that I have not understood anything yet). I find beautiful features or apps on the machine like the rangemeter (although I never use them). Beyond the usual aspects that have been said on this camera, the defects are never lacking, apart from the various limits of the batteries that burn in an AMEN! (well I have 3 and I just need it), of the ISO estate, better than the R1 but we are still far from the new models (e.g. a7III), some limitations of the af that is there but nothing alarming. But the real cons of this machine are the somewhat complicated menus (better to set the machine in English) and the limit of buffering writing on the cards. This is a serious problem because it takes longer to subscribe to files, especially on gusts of 5fps with the risk of losing photos especially if taken on non-performing SD cards or pieces. Always pay attention to the boards and the machine. But then for the rest little matters, because if you appreciate everything it has to offer and accept its flaws, you ask me if it makes sense to buy this machine in 2019? I answer YES. Personally after the a9, the a7RII is the best camera ever made by SONY, best ever of the 5ds and 5dsr and other brands that have a resolution of more than 30/40 mpx. It could be the true maturity of the system itself because here they had to insert a more durable battery, a more efficient af (although on this machine is great and even more) and an extra board, as well as in the presence of a joystick. OK that's too much what I wrote, I know. But said by a fool like me, this camera I love her much more than the R3, that despite the improvements introduced in the third body, will never have the character of the younger sister... BIG SONY
