Sony a7 II (Alpha ILCE-7M2) Compact System Camera With HD 1080p, 24.3MP, Wi-Fi, NFC, OLED EVF, 5-Axis Image Stabiliser & 3" LCD Screen, Body Only

Same price at Amazon


Info added by @Sashecuador

Sony's photographic masterclass gives mighty 24.3MP quality and a super-sharp OLED viewfinder. Building upon the Alpha 7's fine design, this Alpha 7 II mirrorless camera has a 5-axis image stabiliser and a reworked shape to make this powerhouse easier on the hand. When you combine that with returning features like the Fast Hybrid Autofocus and 3 inch tiltable LCD screen, you have the perfect compact system camera to catch any scene.

Powerful CMOS sensor
With a 24.3MP 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, you can really express your creativity. Shoot beautiful defocus effects, capture highly-realistic detail, even in low-light, and wow friends. Ensure every shade and tone comes to life with a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to 25600.

Super-Stable Work
Never let camera blur ruin a shot again with the sophisticated 5-axis image stabiliser. Clamping down on five types of camera shake, you'll snap from a distance, close-up or at night with absolute confidence. This feature works in both photo and video modes so whatever you make will have captivating clarity.

High speed
It's the finer details that really make a difference in photography. The advanced, high-speed BIONZ X image processing engine ensures that every aspect of the scene is faithfully reproduced even when you're shooting with deep focus and a high pixel count.

Reworked Interface
Sony has made the design more ergonomic and intuitive. The front-facing grip makes it a doddle to hold, while the repositioned shutter button gives it's a sleeker edge. Other interface changes like the slimmer front-and-rear dials, two customisable buttons on the top plate and dedicated dial to adjust exposure, ensure absolute convenience. The robust build also has dust and moisture resistant seals, so you're ready for any assignment.

Wi-Fi & NFC
Go anywhere, share anytime. Simply touch the camera against an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet to activate apps or share photos or movies - no extra cables, no complicated connections. Use built-in Wi-Fi to upload to social networks or connect to a PC or TV.

Capturing the moment demands speed and accuracy. Fast Intelligent Autofocus lets you react quickly to maximise the creative potential of the full-frame sensor. The OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder shows an exact view of even dimly lit scenes, in high contrast and high resolution.

4K Photos & Full HD
The high image quality and defocusing power of the full-frame sensor open up a world of detail. See your photos on a big screen 4K Ultra HD TV. Or use the camera's professional movie-making features to shoot detailed Full HD movies in 60p, or 24p for that

Key Benefits

Titanic 24.3MP, 35mm, Full-Frame Exmor CMOS sensor
5-Axis image stabiliser keeps your snaps free of camera blur
Rapid BIONZ X image processor
Crisp OLED EVF is the ultimate tool to capture 4K pictures
Shoot beautiful Full HD videos
Wi-Fi & NFC capable lets you share content and access apps from anywhere
Lenses & Cases
One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless. Click here to browse our selection.

    Can't say I am a fan of the Sony a7 II, which came out in November 2014. Ergonomically it isn't very good compared with most full-frame mirrorless cameras and DSLRs. The AF is not great, the sensor is pretty good but Sony's colour science was pretty terrible back then, The big positive is there are a large range of lenses available for the camera.

    Price pretty good but I certainly wouldn't recommend the camera unless you are desperate to go full frame and have very little money.

    Color science matters only if trying to get final JPEGs in-camera, otherwise shooting in RAW you can apply your own color "science" aka profiles. Ergonomics suck though compared to Canon DSLRs and Panasonic G9.

    I have this camera. Used it for about 4 years now. It's served me well as an entry level mirrorless camera and can whole heartedly recommend it to anyone looking to step up their photography game. Has built in optical stabilisation. Ok the autofocus could be faster but for a casual shooter it's fine. The colours and quality of the photos are beautiful

    The A7iii was a pretty big jump over this camera, not sure what it sells at these days

    I just sold my A7iii with kit lens for £1400 so they are still holding their value

    Certainly the camera has it's limitations compared to its successor, but given that MPB are selling this used for upto £700 I'd say this is a very keen price.

    Depending on your needs this actually isn’t a bad camera and considering it’s full frame you will still get a better image compared to an APSC camera due to it having a bigger sensor. I would always suggest for anybody starting out in photography to really look into decent quality lens and get a reasonable body until your skills improve.

    John Lewis also have the A7C which is much newer technology on at a decent price (and with 200 cashback) which should bring the overall price to 990.

    johnlewis.com/son…085

    Hard to recommend the A7ii now, given how relatively old it is. I've had it since 2016 and I've learned a lot on it. Its a great stills camera with good image quality, internal stabilisation and a good choice of lenses now. However the subsequent models and the APSC ranges have moved this initial mirrorless range onwards quite a lot. Autofocus suffers in comparison with newer models and other features aren't as developed. Do some research before reaching towards this.

    Looking for a camera for safari next year. Would this or a sony A600 be a good choice? Or is it just as good to use a samsung mobile phone and save my money? Any advice gratefully received please.
    Avatar
    Depends on your budget and what your use case will be post-safari trip. When it comes to phone photography, iphones are best at point and shoot with minimal input/post processing. This camera is pretty old, if you are buying something to keep you going, sony a7c, sony a7iii would be better buy.
