     a7r II                                                  a7s II


While both the Sony a7R II and the a7S II can shoot stills and video, they each grab one speciality and take it to a whole new level.

For stills, the a7R II is a studio or landscape photographer’s dream. Driven by its full-frame, back-illuminated 42.2MP CMOS sensor, the a7R II provides incredible detail, a wide dynamic range, and lots of handling flexibility. It also has more focus points, using both phase and contrast detection, which allows for faster focus acquire.

For video, the a7S II is outstanding. Featuring a full-frame, back-illuminated 12.2MP CMOS sensor, the a7S II performs superbly across a wide range of ISO speeds. The 5-axis image stabilization provides up to 4.5 stops of vibration reduction, providing great image quality in low light. Additionally, the rear display portrays a simulated result when shooting in any of the S-Log choices.

ProGear recommends using the new Zeiss Batis series of lenses (18mm, 25mm and 85mm) as a perfect complement with either Sony body. An optional Metabones adaptor is also available to make use of your existing Canon EF mount lenses.
