Sony a7SII Review - an Unpolished Masterpiece

 


The Sony A7sII definitely caught me by surprise. Only a few weeks after completing the review of the awesome Sony A7RII, Sony introduced another killer camera this time with internal 4k recording, in body Image Stabilization, S-log 3, a new 169 point AF system, and more new features to further separate Sony from the rest of the pack. So I’ve taken this camera through it’s paces shooting everything from weddings to landscapes to see if the A7sII is a worthy upgrade and if it's time you jump from the traditional DSLR to this mirrorless powerhouse.
