Pros: In 2021 value for the money. Amazing sensor.

Cons: Not for my type of photography.

Opinion: I was looking for a camera for shooting with vintages lenses. It should have at least 36 Megapixel to see which of the old lenses is still great today. Although I'm not all ways happy with my Sony A7II, it was quite clear that it will be a Sony again. The Sony accessories for the A7R II also fit the A7 II. Some has critized the speed of A7R II, but it is a lot faster then the A7II. For others the energy consumption was an issue. It turned out that they were talking about energy consumption in standby. That the camera is a big step ahead for me, I realized by reading a test report about the Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Sonnar T. There are two charts for this lense. One for the lens with the A7R and another for the lens with the A7R II. https://www.digitalkamera.de/Zubeh%C3%B6r-Test/Testbericht_Sony_FE_55_mm_1_8_Sonnar_T_ZA_SEL-55F18Z/9187.aspx That has me totally convinced. When you check out the test report about the Zeiss Otus 55mm at the same source, you will find a chart for the Otus mounted on a Nikon D800E. You will realize that the A7R II with Sony Sonnar 55mm is very nice setup :-)

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: Price of used in 2021-2022 from entry level, but in the hand you have a hyper professional body; fantastic sensor, stabilized and backlit; medium-high iso noise (up to 2000) practically non-existent, which for a 42 mpx machine is not obvious; AF in line with the type of machine, remember that it was born for landscapes, architecture, still life et similia, you can not expect it to have a reactive AF like A7 III or A7R IV; much closer in settings to the A7 III than to the A7 II; build quality; silent shooting; thanks to the customizations you have the opportunity to sew it on; possibility to shoot in APSC mode and to use apsc optics on an FF body; charging via USB

Cons: Very personal and for the price it has today I would call them only vices of Sony youth, but still: battery life, but not original cost very little and are super light; single slot, but it is very personal, not working on it for an amateur photo that does not stress the SD the single slot is not a big problem; Buffer, but as mentioned above it is not a machine for action; Single AF not very convincing; EVF dated, but usable without any problem. A big flaw, which unfortunately has only been solved with A7IV by Sony, is the sensor always discovered when the machine is turned off. Unfortunately, therefore, the sensor gets dirty very quickly

Opinion: I find it hard to understand those who complain about heavy Raw, if you want lighter and more malleable files stay on rooms with less resolution! Surely such heavy files need a lot of GB of space and adequate hardware to process them, but these are things you should know when buying jewelry like this machine. The machine is amazing, usable everywhere, robust and well built, I use it mainly with a 20mm Tokina and with a 135mm Itorex with Minolta MD connection. The colors he returns with the latter are fabulous, warm and super pleasant. It obviously needs serious and well-built optics, 42mpx do not forgive with cheap or poorly assembled optics. The possibility, but like all mirrorless, of being able to pre-visualize the shot, even in BN, helps you to practically never make mistakes and to focus on your style or your moment. Do you want to shoot in BN and contract on the scene? you do. Do you want colors? you do. It's crazy! For those who want to learn photography in depth, this is an incredible machine that from all the possibilities, the more you know it and the more it returns incredible emotions. The AF is very respectable, if used with Sony or Zeiss lenses it is very precise and fast, obviously it is not an A9, but it was not born for this either. Perhaps the only weak point is the single AF. The ergonomics for me are fantastic, it will be that I have very thin and tapered hands, but to hold in my hand it is always perfect and well balanced. Even after hours of use, coming from a D7100 that after 10 minutes hurt the wrists, it does not even seem to have it in hand. The weight then, if compared to an SLR, is unparalleled. This machine with a fixed optics not too bulky becomes a jewel practically pocket-sized, something that for SLRs is unthinkable. Unbeatable value for money nowadays. On JPEGs I can not pronounce myself, I always use it in raw uncompressed and gives the best of itself, if you get a photo wrong here it is only the photographer's fault, the camera allows you to do everything. I always try to post-produce at a minimum and to have as much as possible the shot as I would already like it while shooting, but in case of error the RAW it produces allow you almost any correction. The fact that it then has 42mpx allows you to crop a lot and without seeing any drop in quality. It goes without saying that you crop from FF to APSC and shoot with a 20mm the ratio between the planes does not change, even if the lens becomes a 30mm, but doing so with a single lens you can afford more shots. The same goes for the crop phase in post production. If I went back, I would take her back with my eyes closed. The only thing that maybe will make me change it will be, when it has a much lower price than now, the new A7IV. Possibility also to make videos, obviously it is a photocentric and not videocentric camera, which means that it is a camera that also makes videos, not a camcorder that also takes photos as sony's A7S series can be, but in any case it does not disfigure even in those small souvenir videos that you want to do on some occasion. Charging via usb very useful. If you deactivate all the various aids such as HDR and the like, it is a machine that in Manual is great. Taking it to use it only in the car does not make much sense, but it is still a personal choice. It already has all the connectivity you need, such as WiFi, NFC and more, for many it can be a significant advantage. Raw to jpeg files weigh a lot and therefore allow you to make even very large prints. Overall it is from 9.5, for the 10 obviously the next ones are better and therefore it would be unfair to vote it with the maximum. Definitely super recommended, obviously if you have in mind what kind of photography you want to do

Pros: Size, image quality, shadow and light recovery

Cons: Battery, file writing to card, buffer

Opinion: At Christmas they are 4 years old that I own this little gem. I had been walking around it for a long time then for my 50 I made myself this gift. Purchased mainly for its size and for the possibility of using vintage optics of any kind. I had, and still have, a 5DmIII that I use much less right now but that always has its why. The difference in shadow recovery is abysmal. As I said, its size makes a big difference. With Voigtlander 40 f1.4 lens you practically put it in your pocket. I have always traveled for work in countries such as Thailand, India and going around with Canon does not go unnoticed. I also realized that shooting in manual, as we did a few years ago, makes you stop, think about the composition, think about the depth of field etc. and I realize that I take photos that I like the most. Moreover I am not one who takes 30 photos on the same subject for which 5FPS are enough for me but what is certainly terrible is the writing time of the card. Finished the buffer you have to stop and wait too long before shooting again. The battery drains very quickly even if you do not use it (I always compare it to today's Smartphones compared to the old Nokia that never discharged). Fortunately, the batteries are small (more than the rolls were) and above all (it was one of the first machines to allow it), you can charge it in any situation, bringing with you a Power Bank or from the cigar lighter of the car. The only thing to watch out for is the power button. Several times it happened to me that I had the car in a backpack and when I went to get the car the battery was dead because it had turned on inadvertently. For me, given the cost of the used, it is a great toy. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tatino967/

Pros: File quality, dynamic range, build quality, devalues very little

Cons: Battery life, menu, single slot and connectivity

Opinion: Almost perfect machine if it were not for the cons mentioned by me (and many other users). I am in doubt whether to switch to a7iii or even fuji apsc, but about Fuji the thought goes away immediately because what I recover with Sony I will never be able to do with Fuji (shadows on all). Also worth mentioning iso tightness but with some optics in particular in my opinion, with Sony optics, zeiss no problem! Honestly my only doubt is about battery life for everything else I can overlook. Colors not like Fuji but they settle easily.
