Pros: Focus, Sharpness

Cons: Slow in file saving phase

Opinion: I bought the Sony a7II about a month and a half ago, and I'm very pleased with the purchase. The features that have impressed me the most are definitely the sharpness of a higher level than some FF with which I have taken for years. The stabilization of the camera, makes impeccable the focus that is fast and precise. To these quality I add the compact design that makes the camera light and small but with great potential in terms of product quality. With all due respect to the Canon of which I still proudly own an FF model, I think I have made the best purchase in 10 years of photography. The only boring part is the slowness in saving raw files, but this does not prevent me from continuing to shoot during a photo set.

Pros: FF sensor

Cons: Focus peaking not perfect using magnification

Opinion: I only use it in manual with manual lenses, via adapter. I don't know the autofocus features. For the use I make is perfect, you can use all the lenses with special adapter, in their original format. By setting 5 "custom" functions on the physical keys (exposure area, focus peaking color, ISO, lens focal length, magnification) you forget about the menu on the screen, which is kept off and saves battery. I also have a Fuji X-T1, of which I really appreciate the physical dials and focus peaking that works well even with magnification (in this respect one step ahead of Sony) but the quality of Sony files is superior. The 24mps are sufficient and correct for use with vintage lenses. Recommended for those who want to photograph in manual but via digital sensor.

Pros: Weight, resolution, ease of settings, complete system and excellent optics.

Cons: Nothing special, usual poor battery life.

Opinion: I've had this car for about four months and I have to say I'm really happy. I come from the Nikon world and I couldn't take any more of heavy, bulky, expensive machines. The mirroless world is now a well-established reality, and also well. I take pictures especially of trips, so I don't need a lightning bolt for focus, or very fast bursts. For what it costs today, it's definitely the best value for money. Since the battery life is what it is, you just need to have a few spares and the problem does not exist. Greetings!!

Pros: Sensor, price, construction

Cons: For the price nothing.

Opinion: It was my first full frame ML and I was delighted. The only thing I suffered a bit was the high ISO yield ('6400 ISO', one stop behind the current standards of a full frame. I came from Canon 5DII and 6D and the thing that excited me the most was the quality of the low ISO file. The famous dynamic range, but also the noise and also the sharpness that on equal conditions is higher than 6D, probably for a less invasive low pass filter. Whether developing the file could be a source of anxiety with the "old" Canon with Sony sensors is a pleasure. Ergonomics and size: this is personal factor, many complain, I definitely prefer the small A7 body body over the big reflex bodies, very easy to carry around and also to handle for my hands. AF: There is some cliché to dispel, the AF of the A7II is not at all as scarce as it reads. It is if you compare it with the tracking of the third series, but coming from the 6D I found it definitely superior to this reflex and not only for the accuracy (no more front/back focus) and the ability to use the sides without problems, but also for overall responsiveness. Keep in mind that these sony second generation focus in stop down, this is to be kept in mind in some situations, at the edge in the studio flash better disable the preview/live view (it's a topic that should be covered separately). With Canon optics adapted with MC-11 instead it focuses on open diaphragm. IBIS: I have never been fond of stabilizers, with this I thought again and started to use it really, 2-3 gain stop there are all. I was afraid that the suspended sensor would cause misalignments of the sensor plane, instead no problem, the sensor crashes in its position perfectly, no tilt detected of the focus plane. Electronic viewfinder: even here is personal stuff, I found myself in wonder, the advantages are known I'm not going to list them. Batteries: They last much less than reflexes, it is mandatory to have at least one spare. But in practical use in the end is not a problem. Construction: This is something that is little talked about. These bodies look spartan to see, but I think they're perhaps more robust than a 5DII. One aspect struck me: in the A7II the lens flangia is screwed to a metal basket that also assembles the sensor, all constitute a metal frame that would look robust and rigid. In the Canon 5DII I had seen, following a repair, that the flangia is screwed on a plastic stand : Which one is built better? the answer may not be so obvious. Reliability: after a year and a half and 20,000 shots (even in wedding services) I have nothing to report. Never a malfunction, an indecision, a charge. P.S. Before taking a Sony I waited for the Canon RP, just since sensor there had been mounted I took Sony.

Pros: Manuality, sensor, body quality, ability to "digest" virtually all manual and vintage optics

Cons: Using it only in manual I can not make judgments about the capabilities of af and automatisms, modest battery, crosshairs...

Opinion: Review that refers to only manual use with my old Zeiss Contax-Yashica lens set, so I can not and do not want to make comparisons with other editions of the same body, various automations or reflex. I wanted to stay on a non-stellar budget and after various considerations I agreed that a mirrorless with a good sensor was the most honest choice to recycle my old Zeiss that made me return to the pleasure of manual focus (let me tell you, it is important for us photographers born with analog... but maybe a little for everyone) and they still have a lot to say in terms of blurry, definition, color, "breath" of a full frame shot. Size and weight: they are the same as my old analog Contax, it seemed to me to go back in time but without the feeling of handling a Kalashnikov as when I was shooting in film, the adaptor ring only unbalanced it a little forward especially when I use the 35 1.4 or the 85 1.4 which are a piece of history. Sensor: does very well his work (1 raw 49.7 mp), gives a good recovery of the highlights but when you raise the iso leaves a noticeable background noise if you discover too much the shadows. I certainly did not compare it to the work of 40 sensors and mp passes, but using it with lenses of the 70s only in raw and passing the images almost invariably in b&n I get images that have a detail and a definition of respect. Battery: depressing, in order to use the car with a little peace of mind I uneven the screen and use it only with the viewfinder, which made me return once more to the old reflex. With this system does not collapse after a few hours. Crosshairs: compared to the Fuji I usually use... there is just none, especially with the focus peaking that is necessary with all the vintage lenses and that I find inaccurate (long live the mirrors of the reflex), but it is saved with the zoom that, set with the button that you have more to shoot with your fingers, helps a lot. The comparison with the Fuji, which remain my basic set, is merciless in terms of weight and scope, but the use I make of it is very particular and I think it is more than justified in the light of the images I can obtain. In this way I returned to my steps in a territory of manual photos, necessarily slower. The speed of a current car in autofocus is a beautiful thing and allows you to steal many shots in the street, but sometimes that's not all and anyway with the old lenses you can predict depth of field and timing easily. Such a composed system can certainly not replace the automatic maf of a mirrorless or a reflex, but, to those who look for it, it completely returns the pleasure of choosing a photo and looking for it in manual, compose it in all facets also thanks to the bokeh that in the full frame lenses is necessarily more expressed than in an apsc, and sometimes slow down in their own search for the best images. Definitely a completion that has a logic and a pleasure all its own. PS strangely there is an unexplained delay (for a normal user) at the first ignition after a rest period... I don't know the explanation though there's definitely. PPSS also add that I noticed a strange "flicker" effect to the use of focus peaking for manual focus, very annoying for the inability to fix a detail for a long time, I do not know if in later models it has been improved... https://www.instagram.com/mmarzaro57/
