How is the iso from 100-400 compared to the original a7, a7r, and canon 5d/6d
I haven't seen much in iso performance review... I'm sure more to come

I thought it was the same sensor.. so that's probably why not a lot of new info on the sensor performance.. it was already covered with the a7 mk I.

Received my A7 II today to use with my Leica Summilux 50/1.4 ASPH. A match made in heaven for me!

thanks for your report. that's good news about the flare :)

hopefully it's a keeper for you. I was afraid of it being more heavy.. the a7 were nice because they are small and light weight. it's obviously that it will be a bit bigger in size and weight because of the IBIS. looking forward to your shots.

well, the weight is relative. It's 100g heavier which is 20%. But that still makes it only 600g...

Got mine today from B&H! I'm back... i had the orginal A7 , but it felt cheaply made and the focus was slow, like really slow, so i SOLD it........ The A7II feels total opposite and focuses a lot FASTER....

Welcome back Dave. Does the a7 II focus faster using non Sony lenses too? It looks like you have the Sony 35 f2.8 in your 'selfie' but I don't know what lenses were used in your other photos.

The other lenses i have are all manual focus lenses.... i have the 55 f/1.8 which is pretty fast and impressive, and this 35mm f/2.8... i also have the Voitlander 40mm f1.4 M mount lens, but thats manual focus... i guess it can be depending how fast i can manual focus.

Awesome stuff as always David. Sure is good to see you back posting here! I know you're going to help a lot of people out by sharing your thoughts about the a7 II, both the good and the not-so-good. :)

I'm starting to wonder if I don't want to sell my a7R in favor of the a7 II; looks like a fantastic walk-around type camera for just the sort of shots you've posted.

I try to be as honest as possible.... the A7 was great camera, but it just didn't "work" for me and i had it for 6 months before selling... I was then "spoiled" by how fast the focus was on the OMD EM1, but missed the IQ of the a7.... once the a7II was announced i was excited... So far, I'm quite impressed how fast the focus is... it's up there with the Fuji XT1.... but not quite where the OMD or even the A6000, but i'm also beginning to think it's just the larger sensor... but, still fast and lovely... The great thing is, i never sold my extra batteries, adapters and manual lenses, so i have all these amazing things that will fit in with my A7II.

The Grip, the Feel feels like a tank now.... but my only concern would be the LCD.... it's slimmer (skinnier) then the previous A7's, not sure if it will be durable... i suggest getting a screen protector for it....

Stay tuned, more photos to come!

Found a possible issue... Since the memocary card is no where the grip is (back of it) i accidentally open it with my hand..... happened to me three times today, but otherwise... still great!!!!

I was hoping they pumped it up to the A6000 level. That is a wicked fast focus system. Does the A7 II compared to A7s focus? Not sure if you have used an A7s.
