I got my Sony A7rII yesterday. First evening was spent putting things together and finding out things. Today I had some opportunity for some real shooting.
First samples are posted here: http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/Ar...II/FirstShots/
I plan to use existing A-mount lenses with the Sony LA-EA3 adapter but also get some new lenses. Initial shooting was with:
- Sony 70-400/4-5.6G, this lens seems to work very well with Sony A7rII
- Sony 24-70/2.8 ZA lens, this also works well with the Sony A7rII
Fe-Mount lenses: I have two right now
- Sony 28-70/3.5-5.6 lens
- Sony 90/2.8G Macro
The Sony 28-70/3.5-5.6 cannot hold a candle to the 24-70/2.8 ZA, but may still be usable. Small and convenient with decent central sharpness.
The Sony 90/2.8 Macro needs more testing under controlled conditions.
I also have a newly bought Canon 24/3.5 TSE, it also cannot hold a candle to the 24-70/2.8ZA so far. Perhaps a bad sample?
AF with the Sony 90/2.8G Macro is very fast. AF seems usable with macro. Great!
AF with A-mount lenses not so great but workable. Obvious closed loop operation.
The camera is nicely made but maybe to small. I mostly shoot tripod.
Battery life is indeed short, I would think. But it used to improve a bit. Batteries are coming into shape, less playing around. Using decent options to save power, etc.
