 Sensor: Since both the siblings have 12.2MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor. Due to their presence, it minimizes the noise production and also enables sensitivity from ISO 100-102400, which is further expandable to ISO 50-409600. The Sony didn’t increase the ISO range of Sony A7SII. Our earlier expectation was that it will come with more ISO range than its predecessor, to make the image sensor more sensitive to light.

Auto-focus: Sony A7S II features fast and Intelligent AF system employs 169 AF points, the AF points are composed of 25 contrast-detection points and nine central AF points that have been split into 16 segments each, the AF system not only faster than of Sony A7s but it also features greater accuracy.

Sony A7S II supports Internal UHD 4K Recording, which the Sony A7S II was missing. The video of Sony A7S II contain more details, better color, contrast and sharpness compared to the Sony A7S. The Sony A7S II is free from line skipping or pixel binning, the A7S II features full pixel readout the terminates the issue loss of details, advance AF detection algorithm speed-up the AF speed of the camera 2 times more compared to its predecessor.

Sony Alpha 7SII vs. Sony Alpha 7S 2

Sony A7SII can record 120fps at 100Mbps without pixel binning in full frame format also results in 4x/5x slow motion footage in Full HD. It has the ability to shoot 4x/5x slow motion footage internally.

Introduction of image stabilization: presence of 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization system in Sony A7SII makes it smooth shooting of stills and video by reducing five types of camera shake and it also it will give the option to the users to use any lens, or adapted lenses without facing any problems created by camera shake. But there is absent of such type of stabilization system in Sony A7S.

Rest of the core specification remains same.

Verdict: The Sony A7S II camera does have many upgrades over the Sony A7S camera but the sensor and image processor remains same. Finally the image quality of both the camera will be similar. For still shooters and owners of Sony A7S camera we don’t recommend to update you current camera against A7S II and you must wait for a better model, possibly the Sony A7S III with a new sensor and image processor.

The biggest disappointment is the use of same sensor instead of developing a new one, Sony does have the capability to make Hybrid sensor as we already see in Sony A7R II camera. It’s better to say Sony updated the Sony A7S Camera, it’s not a new version
