sony a9ii review

But even then, again, read the comments on the R5 discussion that was featured on the home is one after another of Sony fans relentlessly repeating the talking points, which also include the same stale jokes. Also reach for it when shooting portraits for the same reasons as above. This is your chance to have a say in which of this year's products was the best. Sigma 30mm F1.4 Performance and Chromatic Aberrations. Imagine an A7r3 or A7riv that can shoot 20 FPS and 4K video at 10 bit 4:2:2 from its full sensor readout. What's really funny though is you paid $500 for a TC and $2000 for a lens that give you 840mm at F9 on a 24MP sensor.For about 1/3rd the price you could get an 800mm F11 (only 2/3 stop difference) prime that weighs over a pound less, and is smaller and easier to carry!And a 45MP image at F11 can be sharped and reduced to 36MP for vastly better IQ and more detail than you could ever get with the A99ii low resolution sensor. Canon were forced down the mirrorless route, lets not forget that. Clearly, Sony had to choose between different priorities. Good travel cameras should be small, versatile, and offer good image quality. Even Sony owners realize the SLTs and original NEX camera concept were mostly failures and abandoned by Sony.years ago.Any criticism of those was warranted.Sony’s future lies in FE and full frame cameras. The A9/A9ii are the worst-selling Sony full frame cameras they make. Why do you have more than a hundred comments under those articles? Any positive statement on any non Sony product must be immediately ridiculed by Sony users.2. I take pictures of my travels, my life and the people who are important to me. The Sony a9 II is an updated version of the original a9, which was the first flagship in the series sitting above the a7 line. Sony's new Alpha A7R III could be one of the best mirrorless cameras we've seen. You understand nothing. I must be doing something wrong. The Sony A9II is just a wonderful camera. . You clearly were attacking him. Calumet DE. , I'm aware that the 70-300mm has a maximum 15fps but even the 100-400 tops out at 20 ,compared to the 24fps of the RX10IV.I just uploaded the 25.600 iso image in full ,untouched but DPReview is not showing it in full quality , it's really virtually noise free but I don't know what is the limitation on this site for quality uploads, too many blackouts when doing high fps with OVF, @Paul: Check out And the other special person wrote 50 comments! If people are arguing that battery life does not matter..they are wrong, much like Sony fans were back then..actually until much more recently, 2 years ago...when they updated their batteries to finally actually be competitive with dslr's. The same shortcomings of the Sony’s from 8 years ago. You should get a job with Dpreview and make some money at least while your at it. Well, it's a camera review and the camera is good. These capable cameras should be solid and well-built, have both speed and focus for capturing fast action and offer professional-level image quality. The improvements to the Sony A9ii over the original A9 have been evolutionary rather than revolutionary - but all the same Sony says that there are no fewer than 43 improvements over the original model. Do you expect likes for that? Introduction Lenses & Adapters Specifications Accessories USA Version Performance Compared Usage Recommendations Sony A9 II (24.0 oz./678g with battery and one card, $4,498) and 24-70mm f/2.8 GM. No one is going to buy a Z6 as a sports camera (burst speed too slow), and few can afford a Nikon D5/6 or a Canon 1Dxii/iii. I think I am brand neutral, seems you aren't. I know only too well how bad it use to get between the two. Even Roger C isn't happy! Down And Dirty WithThe Sony a9ii - Duration: 11:12. You obviously don't know what the A9/A9II is all about. Read our full review to see why it's … Nikon D500 vs Sony A9 II. Since you added to your comment while I was writing, now I am adding to's not some kind of conspiracy that U alluded to before. Again, Canon failed to listen to their users.Canon keeps telling that they have these professional (couple of thousands) whom they consult and use as testers... Who are these experts which missed these limits during their test. A9 series are inferior in all other cases considering this thing costs $4500. What they seek most is instant AF acquisition and class-leading AF tracking. There are a lot of improvements in the A9II but not enough to buy it: the A9 is already almost perfect thanks to the new update! some of us are reading nonesense here for last 15 years so no we do not take offense to it. Would you pay double for a canon? Recently it's mostly sony users and their big mouth youtuber overlord. I can't really be bothered to continue this "conversation". Check KR’s website for “meaningful reviews” then. Apology ? Meanwhile cameras from other brands at less than half the price have been doing it for a while. Check out our gallery of samples to see how it performs. Still, good enough for Dpreview to give gold award. I know it’s tough for you. For example even if you think they are biased, it changes nothing for them. For my needs, Sony has until recently come up way short on nearly everything that I personally need as a professional photographer. Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept. Well done Sony for advancing Photography to the next level ... Great camera, as well as the a7R IV but I am skipping this upgrades since it has been in my opinion the first time Sony behaved in that conservative Canon’s way. Its free world so go ahead and do so. What your thoughts on all of its other attributes, or is that really THE only one that matters now? @rubberdials. WIth the A9 II, there is a slight drop in AF accuracy and consistency when using the tracking AF modes compared to non-tracking. The Sony Alpha a9 II is the company's sports-oriented full-frame mirrorless camera. Not their wife. Who's the photographer that wants 20fps for slow moving scenes, or 8k for a couple of minutes at the beginning of the day. Patrick probably has the most Sony a9II experience out there shooting multiple events across over 2,000 miles. Try to keep up. Certain individuals ruin the comments section for me every time a new camera is reviewed. Simple math. Only fanboys/girl use words such as better or superior. What EF lenses? Canon and Nikon. However, just because someone is young or new does not make them a bad person, nor a bad photographer. It's no wonder they sold more mirrorless in 2019, they just have more with the 6 year head start they had. Ever heard of it? Lol. That people were already using it before covid? FWIW. This approach based on perception is something that I think is not in Sony's DNA. Wi-Fi and Ethernet. That edited comment. And why didn’t Sony prioritize a faster mechanical shutter on a sports body? But I did comment strongly against the guy who said the solution to the R5 battery problem was to hang a battery pack from the USB port. I agree the battery life certainly has much room for improvement. Handsome90 If you remove the video features and the 20fps that can’t be used for action, where is the R5 better than the A7RIII? I think counting the number of comments by any individual is a double edged sword and you certainly need to be careful when calling out other posters without looking at your own history. Well, as we already mentioned in our article about how good the A9 is for wedding photography in particular, the A9 II delivers the goods in terms of low-light focusing. @PAntunes... really? Review: Nikon Coolpix P950. It would be interesting to be able to run a statistic. (You should have checked BEFORE you posted.

Again, you’re basically picking at parts of my comment........a typical defence behaviour of someone who doesn’t want to understand the point of my original comment.......... For instance you could interpret my original comment that this is a very clever camera with amazing autofocus and FPS rate combined with a very accurate exposure system and efficient ISO 24mp sensor. I didn't even mention the R5. The usual suspect of trolls are turning articles into absolute trash. 93-percent focus coverage. Hopefully DPR is considering some options. I shoot A9’s and have spare batteries in the bag. "Sony fans took this to a whole other level and everyone knows it" Ahem have you seen the comment section of A9ii and A7Siii articles. So basically only autofocus and burst shooting performance matters. Out of the 832 comments I would bet 45 of them are Thoughts R Us repeating himself over and over. I felt a need to say this. Should I keep going??? Sony A9 II was introduced to market in October 2019 and Sony A7R IV was launched in July 2019. With a very erratic subject (say swifts or swallows) that I find hard to keep under the AF points, I find tracking is the better option even with the slight reduction in AF perfection because it will do better than I can at keeping an AF point on the subject. It's very possible there are hundreds of posts from the same people. We're glad you asked. It is sharp, beautifully toned and probably one of my favourite pictures ever. tbcass good for you, cause I see a huge difference. Interestingly, I recognize a couple of old (we're talking 10-15 years on this site) Sony users here wading through the same old anti-E rhetoric and the Sony bashers always have new names or accounts, 2 or 3 years or less. PM-R TV 24,251 views. And an article dedicated to it. Wow.” “ It sad you can't be civil and stay on topic.”, Previously you wrote to a fellow poster “Were you too stupid to realize that when you said "We are talking about shooting still sports images.””, Here is your another fine example of your hypocrisy when you wrote “ Why do trolls like Handsome90 have so many posts in the Canon forum is the real question. These people make whatever video they decide to and they do it for commercial reasons - to make money for their channel. You’re right. That helps sales especially nowadays. Check the A7RIV, A7III reviews. You'll see people cry diffraction! Well I shoot Canon but this is obviously a great camera! Interesting to hear of the R5 failures that I have yet to experience after using it since it’s release. 40MP is 100% More than 20MP. Funny Valentine, one thing is to criticise a camera, another is to try a fool people that don't know better. OTOH I am extremely happy with my A9 II and 200-600. :-). 20FPS Awesome By Gary G. I received my A9ii on November 7th from Adorama. I am genuinely curious and not trying to troll! The Sony a9 II didn't make a huge splash in the industry when it launched, but it's certainly left an impression on us. They are in a very difficult position though as I mentioned elsewhere in one of these comments. But for the sports photographers who this camera is aimed at, noise, tonality, colour and dynamic range are secondary concerns. @MikeRan... so in your is Canons fault that the same people that said no one needs 8k for months had no choice but to post 500 times that not having unlimited 8k is a total fail. @tbcass as far as DSLR's "were superior" to Sony, I am talking about: battery life, ergonomics, weather sealing, pro services, lens line-up, menu/ui, single card slot, build quality... with the release of the A7rII and for the most part also later the A7rIII & A7III Sony was still far behind Canikon DSLR's (interestingly Sony "scored" much higher here at DPR compared to the top dslr's at the time)... 3.5 years ago, not 2 years ago. Moderators do a good job too. As a neat little diffuser that has a gigantic impact on the quality of the light from a hotshoe flash unit, the Hähnel Lantern creates a dramatically wide spread of soft illumination. The A7SIII is worse:- worse IBIS- worse ergonomics- worse weather sealing- worse overheating: independent test proved it- worse AF- worse photo capabilities- worse shutter lifespan- worse dust cleaning sensorAnd yet those paid youtube channel promote the A7SIII as the "better camera".I admit the A7SIII has some good points too:- 9 million dots EVF- dual card slot compatible with both SD and CFe- better low light- better 4K- smaller sizeBut that's it.”, Source Aperture closed too much? This comment is obviously not aimed at you. I agree that it, as well as auto focus in general is easier and much faster. Not good for consumers. I’ve seen everything from helicopters to birds to greyhounds to sprinters, all photos taken with the R5 and no rolling shutter that I could see. And putting on non-Canon options seems a bit poor too. But no you and others commenting on my comment and those who have liked your comments have taken offence to my comment, suggesting to me that you really have your heads well and truly stuck up your own, being polite, Bournville chicanes....... "Again, you’re basically picking at parts of my comment.......". Personally dont give a rats @rse what she does but to put it on youtube in this way makes me want to vomit!! Not bulky.
