The 42.4 MP sensor combines gapless on-chip lens design and AR (anti-reflective) coating on the surface of the sensor’s glass seal to dramatically improve light collection efficiency, resulting in high sensitivity with low-noise performance and wide dynamic range. When we look at the 24.3-megapixel on the A7II, the resolution can’t show you the clarity and sharpness like A7RII.

From the table above we can clearly say that the Sony A7RII is a far better camera for your photography.

    Where did you get this from? A7II DOES have a low-pass filter and it DOES also have a hot shoe. Former is good to know, latter is essential…

    What do you mean that the A7II does not have a hot shoe? Where have I been putting my flash all this time? lol

    Sorry guys, our mistake… Corrected the table!

    “From the table above we can clearly say that the Sony A7RII is a far better camera for your photography.”

    How would you know? In the “streets” I’d rather had my a7II stolen than an a7RII. And if I’d drop it in a rough situation, or hit someone, I could still waste two a7II for the price of one a7RII..

    Buying an a7RII might also set some people back so much that they cannot even afford a decent lens anymore. And the a7RII only does live up to its specifications if lenses capable of high resolution are used..

    So – really.. please don’t generalise which is the “better camera for your photography”..
