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.
The Sony α7R II full-frame interchangeable lens camera will be available in August for about $3200.

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.
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.
