Key Features
  • 24.3MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor

Sony has taken their line of full-frame cameras to the next level with the a7 II Mirrorless Camera, which features 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization with 4.5 stops of compensation. Operation of the 24.3-megapixel series has been streamlined with a redesigned grip, shutter release button, and customizable controls; the a7 II also features a moisture- and dust-resistant design with a magnesium alloy body and a more robust lens mount. And, with refined algorithms and better utilization of the BIONZ X image processor, the a7 II has an enhanced Fast Hybrid AF system that is about 30% faster than the previous model along with a 5 fps burst rate with continuous autofocus.

Is this camera good for digi scoping?

Is this camera good for digi scoping?
Asked by: Ronald
"Digiscoping" with a mirrorless camera body can be successfully performed with a normal lens to short tele-lens aligned with a spotting scope's eye-piece lens. The spotting scope needs to be mounted on a tripod for best results. Hand holding the camera, with the lens centered over the object lens is OK - as long as the axis (center line) of both lenses are centered. The best arrangement is to use a "ring-coupling" device to fix the camera lens to the rim of the spotting scope's eye-piece.

Will pictures be full frame when using Sony EPZ ...

Will pictures be full frame when using Sony EPZ 18-200mm lens w/ A7 II full frame camera beside reduced image quality?
Asked by: PhuongMai
No, the Sony E PZ 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens is an APS-C lens, and so it will crop the image when used on the Sony a7 II Mirrorless Camera. There will be a 1.5 crop when using this combination.

You could use a Speed Booster on the a7 II, though you would need to shoot in APS-C size sensor mode.
