Sony A7R II Arrives, Review Started

Get Sony A7R II at B&H Photo.

I’ve received the Sony A7R II. My initial impressions are very favorable in terms of the physical aspects, the button and controls, etc—a big step forward from the Sony A7R. I’ll be detailing the specifics in my review of the Sony A7R II shortly.

For those with Really Right Stuff L brackets: the bracket for the Sony A7R is incompatible. The A7 II bracket may be compatible; I expect the A7 II bracket tomorrow, to try on the A7R II. Reader Brian V states that his A7 II bracket fits perfectly on the A7R II.

Update: the Really Right Stuff L-bracket for the Sony A7 II fits the A7R II perfectly. RRS does have a bracket coming for the A7R II which will include a stabilizing screw for the L part against the strap lug (I’ve seen a prototype picture); it’s a nice touch that I look forward to, but the A7 II bracket works slick as-is.

My review of the Sony A7R II will include a refresh of many lens assessments (Zeiss Loxia, Zeiss Batis, Sony 35/1.4, Sony 90mm f/2.8). I will likely also test various DSLR lenses, but as per longstanding policy, reviews of lenses always go into their native guide (e.g., Guide to Zeiss for Zeiss ZF.2 / ZE lenses).
