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: Sensor

Cons: Typical of first and second generation A7xxx

Opinion: After almost a year of intense use of this machine I can express my opinion. I say that I only do street and portraits set therefore, both the pros and cons, should be seen from this point of view. I really like the sensor and the files it produces. Even in jpg gives me what I need without having to complicate my life with very heavy raw and very long pp. 42mpx are not always necessary, indeed in my field they do not really serve. But they give me a chance to crop how much and how I want and still have a Mr. File. The APS-C mode function is very useful because it still produces 18mpx files and therefore each fixed lens becomes a small zoom as needed. THE ISO management is not mind-blowing but it is still good given the density of the sensor. The dynamic range is very good and keeps you in line with the other A7xxx. In general it is a slow machine. Not very fast the Af. Not very fast writing files and not very fast operation in general. Being passionate about manual lenses I had regrets and exaltations with this machine. The 42mpx sensor undermines some manual targets (and not only) that less powerful sensors gave me great satiation and with this instead show all their limits. The only manual lens that gets excited with this machine is my fantastic Zeiss ZM Distagon T.35mm f1.4 with that and the sensor of the A7rII I discovered new horizons!!! Many complain about battery life. For me it's something not to even take into account and I laugh when I read such comments. The batteries are so small and light that keeping a couple of spares in your pocket does not bother you and to replace the battery takes less than 10 seconds. So what are we talking about??? I and I had Sony A7 of the first and the secinda generation and in this A7rII I see the same flaws as the others. Ergonomics, slowness, operation etc. Having never tried any third- or fourth-generation Sony A7s, I can't say if the defects listed have been fixed or belong to sony DNA. Overall a good machine but not absolutely perfect. For the genre that I do and for the files that give me instead I can say that I will hardly change it! Vote 9 MS

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.
