The 10 Main Differences Between the Sony A9 and A7 mark II

Sony’s camera division has been growing rapidly since it inherited part of Minolta’s technology and know-how back in 2006.

The 10 Main Differences Between the Sony A9 and A7r mark II

In a very short time, Sony went from being a promising yet relatively inexperienced manufacturer of digital cameras to a serious competitor on the digital imaging market.
