Rick Lewis Posted December 13, 2014 Share Posted December 13, 2014 I need some input from those of you shooting the Sony A7 mirrorless camera, if there are any on the forum. I currently use the Fuji X system, (X-T1 & X-E2). I primarily use the 18-55mm for everyday use and the 35mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 for close-up work. I love my Fuji's and the image quality they produce, but, I am having a problem with camera shake. This is accentuated by the fact the cameras are small and Fuji uses an APS-C sensor. I am coming from full frame Nikon. For close up shots with my Nikons I used the 105mm VRII lens. Fuji does not have OIS in any prime lens and the OIS on the 18-55mm is not very good. It actually adds shake to any image shot over 125th/sec, in my experience. So, I am considering buying the new Sony A7II with IBIS. I realize the lens selection is rather limited at this point but they have what I would need, (24-70mm f4, 16-35mm f4, 55mm f1.8). I am perfectly happy with using those lenses for the type of stock photography I wish to do. My question, though, is what do you think of the image quality? I have read that the A7s is perhaps the best low light sensor on the market right now but that is not the sensor in the A7II. I have looked at a few examples, on-line, of A7 RAW files but most do not seem to be properly exposed. Perhaps this was done on purpose to expose noise and the short comings of the sensor. I'm not sure. Believe me, I do not have "GAS". I am not thrilled about changing systems again. I love my Fuji's but I am finding myself taking up to four (4) shots of the same image, hoping I get one sharp. And, I am trying to use 1/500th sec as my minimum shutter speed, but that is not always possible. Any input will be welcome. I do plan on renting the A7II and the 24-70mm f4 lens from Borrowlenses next month but would still welcome the input. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
