While I am very enthusiastic about the new Sony (Canon owner) Smith's post did nothing to illuminate the IQ question. He was excited about the handling and its features which, while useful, left us still in the dark as to IQ.
I am still waiting for images from release versions of the camera. I recall the excitement surrounding the A7R that quickly fell flat when the shutter was found to be wanting.

Sony's free "Image Data Converter" will open the new a7rII raw files just fine. From there, the files can be further edited and either saved as a jpg or exported to Photoshop for additional editing.

I thought I'd share an iso 6400 a7rII raw file shared at the FM forum after opening in image data converter and saved as a jpg. No edits where done other than the default program settings. You can view the full sized jpg at my Flickr page.

I was looking at this on Flickr not taking in the fact that it is at ISO 6400. Good grief that looks clean!

You mentioned full-sized jpg - I only see a max size of 2048.

That's odd, I can see the full sized link when I open the "view all sizes" button. Here is the direct link to the full sized jpg.

That is weird - the "view all sizes" button only reveals a max 2048 option. Oh well, thanks for the direct link. )

It really shows how important high resolution (42 MP) can be towards masking high ISO noise. At 2048 the image looks very clean, but at full resolution the noise is more obvious. Still, it's a very nice result at ISO 6400.

Thanks for that. A very clean result indeed.

Now I need to get my own card in one to see if the golden age has finally arrived.

Speaking of cards, this is the SD card I bought for my new a7rM2 to use when it arrives. I wanted to make sure it would be capable of handling video shot at 4K.

What's wrong with the A7r shutter?

Vibration and and a lot of noise.

This was particularly problematic for me as mirrorless cameras (of all brands) held the promise of being nearly silent.
I was hoping to find a camera delivering high IQ nearly silently as some of my jobs involve taking discreet candid photos of VIPs in meeting rooms.
The lighter weight and smaller size were welcome but not important for me.

I eventually got a Panasonic GX-7 to do the job and it has been exemplary in the task.

Doesn't show off the A7RII a whole lot, but not bad.

Speaking of the noisy shutter on the a7r, here's a short video comparing the shutter sound of the a7rII vs the a7r.

Sounds a lot like the a7II shutter. Gotta love that silent EFC

Well it's official.. I think the first owner (UK) has posted over at dpr. No images or anything yet, just an overview of what all is included in the box, a comment or two about the feel and buttons. We should hopefully start seeing some useful info trickle out over the next few days.
