The Sony A7r II is a full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera in the Sony E-mount range. It took the place of the first generation A7r in 2015 and has since been succeeded by the A7r III.
The A7r II is a high-resolution model whose star feature is its backside illuminated 42.4MP full-frame sensor. However, unlike its predecessor, it is a much more well-rounded model thanks to its fast hybrid AF system with 399 phase detection points across the sensor, 4K video up to 30fps, various picture profiles including S-Log2 gamma and 5-axis in-body stabilisation.
