The camera works great but I have been unable to contact anyone knowledgeable at Sony despite 4 tries this week. I may have to return the camera until I can get some answers.

Great, needs to work better with Canon lenses

June 29, 2015
I am a professional cameraman and use the A7ii exclusively for video. I just got back from Africa where I used it for the first time. I had no problems with overheating and the ambiant temperature was 43 degres Celcius. The camera didn't turn on a couple of times, with only a partial screen appearing. I had to turn it off and on twice to get the camera to work again. I use Canon lenses with the Metabones adapter. The autofocus is very slow, unusable in video. Peaking does not work, nor does focus magnify. I am very happy with the image quality and colors. I wish all the features worked with Canon lenses as they are better quality than the ones available from Sony. Plus, I would hate to have to change them all! Stabilisation works well for hand-held shots, but it doesn't replace a steadycam device because although you can hold it static and have a reasonably stable image, you can't walk with it. Overall, a great camera and looking forward to any improvements!... Read More  Hide

Nice Camera

Before this, I had an a7. The Mark II is definitely nice. The autofocus, while improved, isn't something I'd consider a significant betterment of this camera. Still don't like how a lot of its functions, including the EVF, are battery-drainers. In order to get the most out of the batteries, I keep mine in Airport Mode at all times. All-in-all: 8/10. The Zeiss glass made me come back to Sony over Canon.... Read More  Hide
