Sony Announces An A7RII With A 42MP Sensor & Internal 4K

Rumors have been circulating for the past few months regarding a replacement for Sony's high mega-pixel E-mount model, the a7R. While some expected it to be announced at NAB, it wasn't until just a few hours ago that the model was officially unveiled and touts some surprising specifications for the price.

Here's the full list of specs:

  • 42MP Full-Frame Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor
  • BIONZ X Image Processor
  • 5-Axis SteadyShot INSIDE Stabilization
  • 399 Phase-Detect AF Points & 5 fps Burst
  • Internal 4K XAVC S Video & S-Log2 Gamma
  • 0.5″ 2.36M-Dot XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF
  • 3.0″ 1,228.8k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor\
  • ISO 102,400 and Silent Shutter Mode
  • Durable Reduced-Vibration Shutter Design
  • Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC

The a7RII will be sold for $3200 which is $1000 more than the previous generation though it packs a lot more punch, more specifically with innovative features in the video realm. B&H is opening pre-orders for the new camera starting on June 17th although it won't ship until August. I'll be pre-ordering on the 17th so stay tuned for a full review by the end of August.
