Sony's New CMOS Sensor in A7R II has Unbelievable Spec

Sony's recently announced a7R II features a 42.4MP image stabilized full-frame BSI CMOS sensor with built-in phase detection elements for faster autofocus and capable of 4K recording.

The shutter in this model has also been improved with 500,000 actuations rating.  Sony also promises less vibration than the one on its predecessor. The sensor is by far the largest backside illuminated CMOS chip to be released, allowing the maximum expanded ISO to rise two stops to 102,400.

Another great news for those of you with a collection of A-mount lenses - the sensor's phase-detection AF can be used with simpler LA-E3 adapter, rather than the LA-E4 that had an SLT mechanism built in.

The 4K video sample showcased during a launch event was simple astonishing.  The camera takes a full advantage of its full-frame sensor, and manual exposure controls are available during recording.

It also gains an electronic first curtain shutter option to eliminate shutter vibration, which was a problem with the original a7R at longer focal lengths. It also offers a fully electronic silent shutter.

This is truly a profession grade still and video camera that's ready to tackle any challenging situations with a price to match at $3,200.
