The Sony A7r II - I own it, I use it. Nobody said I have to like it!

Sony stand at The Photography Show, March 2016, NEC, Birmingham, UK.

I've bought and use a Sony A7r II. Nobody said I have to like it!

WHAT I DON'T LIKE

  • Poor Battery Life
  • Too small for most FF lenses leading to poor balance
  • Camera layout of knobs, buttons and dials too closely packed, exaggerated by small size
  • Some poor manufacturing issues. The battery compartment cover is a particular example of this
  • Sensor very prone to dust spots. My Canon 5Ds is (surprisingly) much better
  • Poor lens choice
  • IBIS not as good at stabilising images as Lens IS
  • Overpriced (Though I did buy a substantially cheaper grey import)
  • Boring bridge camera type design and look

WHAT I LIKE

  • Great Image Quality for Stills and Video
