    Sony and now Nikon offer full frame cameras with better specs than this, but as a full frame camera with zoom lens bundle coming in at under $1000 you can't beat it.

    I upgraded the lens to the 24-105 which is faster and sharper, but this camera has gone with me everywhere. I love my camera. I recommend hitting YouTube for videos to get the most out of its features.

    I bought this as an upgrade to an APS-C camera. So far so good. The resolution is awesome and this mid level mirrorless camera features are great!

    If you want a lightweight full frame camera this camera is a good choice. The image stabilization and fast autofocus are great features. Battery life sucks compared to my DSLR but batteries are relatively cheap so get several, get an external charger too. Extra lenses are expensive and ps why I gave it a 4.

    I had to buy a replacement model since my shutter mechanism failed on my first one. While some would see that as a drag, it happens. As far as the camera performance for video, photo, usability, customization, features goe...I love this camera. It hits every point I need and is being used as a pro/amateur /hobbyist camera.

    I was looking for a full frame camera to take with me on trips and purchased this one over the Nikon 6D because it is lighter weight. Couldn't have made a better decision. It's features are also more advanced and the mirrorless shot previews are astounding. Highly recommend.

    I read everything I could find on mirrorless cameras and decided that this A7 is just what I was looking for. I really like the size and weight of this camera. The only problem that I have, is the battery life. This camera has meet my expectations and I am very happy with my purchase

    This is my first big camera purchase. It has all the features I can afford and still churns out quality video and photos. It's a hefty camera, but not as heavy as some other brands. The size is also right for me. Using it for short video work.

    I bought this camera, after buying and returning, a Canon EOS M50. The M50 felt like a toy compared to the Sony. I bought a mid line Sony years ago and loved it. The full image sensor is my favorite part of this camera. The wifi and NFC connectivity are great as well.

    This Sony Full Frame camera is very easy to use and has a full set of features. I typically use the advanced features of A, S, P, or Manual Modes. All modes are very easy to set and use. I previously had a Nikon P5200 and wanted to upgrade to a full frame camera with quality image results and I was not disappointed. Menu's are easy to use intuitive.

    The Sony a7 mark 2 is a very good introduction to the full-frame road. Any amateur or hobbyist will love this camera. The features it offers are more than enough for a beginner. If you're not a paid photographer, spending $3-4k on a camera is absurd and this camera definitely can compete with the big boys, but without the expensive price. You're getting $3-4k worth of features for half the price. This is the best bang-for-your-buck 35mm camera I've ever owned.

    This review will will be short and sweet from an ex canon user. I was previously shooting with a canon 70d so this is an upgrade for me. Image wise there's no doubt amazing quality with high ISO and little grain as opposed to the 70D. I love this camera minus some key features it's missing, touch screen, an app that has ability to adjust shutter speed/aperture, and built in apps. My main grip is the fact you can't adjust shutter speed or aperture with Sony memories app on the A7 II. Other than that the camera surpasses my previous crop sensor and takes amazing high res images!
