Sony A7RII Release Date Scheduled For Early Summer

Sony is once again rumored to be working on a A7R successor camera. The release date of the so-called Sony A7RII mirrorless camera is scheduled for May or June.

The Sony A7r is currently the biggest resolution camera in Sony’s line-up. Now the Company is reportedly working on a successor model and according to latest reports, the Mark II version will come pack with the on-sensor 5-axis image stabilization system, which we first see on the A7II.

The name of the camera is also not clear if it will be the A7RII or the rumored Sony A9. But it appears that this camera might refer to the next generation Sony A7R with minor changes.

Sony A7RII To Feature 5-axis image stabilization system


At the beginning of 2015, Sony is rumored to announce a successor to the A7R mirrorless camera with 50-megapixel full frame image sensor and the launch date was set for CP+ 2015.

Now the rumor mill almost confirms the new model will be the A7R successor but also mentions that it will not feature a higher-resolution image sensor as expected. It appears that the Sony A7RII release date is set for sometime in late May or early June.

The minor changes when compared to current A7R also means that this camera doesn’t refer the flagship A9 model. See the Sony big-megapixel sensor rumors in the past (46-megapixel and 54-megapixel).

What We Can Expect From Sony A7RII Mirrorless Camera

The specs list are unknown at the moment but we expect the following specs for the upcoming Sony A7RII.

  • Sony A7 Mark II type grip
  • 5-axis IBIS system
  • Sony A7s type quiet shutter mode
  • Sony A6000 type AF system
  • Same 36-megapixel image sensor (we may see the 50MP sensor on the flagship A9)

Sony will soon replace the A7R mirrorless camera with a new model it is expected to be called A7RII which will feature 5-axis IBIS.

    dont expect a6000 autofocus, neither the quiet shutter mode.

    My shutter is remniscent of the camera version of a truck door slamming shut, it’s not an issue since I don’t photograph wildlife. The vibrations caused by shutter are what i’d like to see removed or limited more. Curious that they are not going to change the sensor in it at all.
    I hope for more than just window dressing on the A7s, I view the A7 line as the flagship and not the A9 but I guess time will tell.

    Sony Alpha Rumors have all the liability of perforate condoms. In any case, Sony risks missing out on a huge client base by failing to update the RX1 / A7R / A7S with bigger sensors and faster AF. Leave it to Canon to announce the next generation sooner. Most of us expected much, much more at the April 23 press event. Sony has disappointed us.
