As we all know that Canon EOS RP uses the same sensor as of Canon 6D Mark II camera. So, expecting a better dynamic range from Canon 6D Mark II as we have in Sony A7 II isn’t fair.

What actually improved from Canon 6D Mark II vs Sony A7 II ?  By the Introduction of new DIGIC 8 image processor the Canon also implemented new noise processing algorithms with the camera. So, the noise of the camera is bit more controlled compared to Canon 6D Mark II.

Exposure and more…

Exposure Control  
Canon EOS RP Sony A7 II
ISO Sensitivity Auto, 100 to 40000 (Extended Mode:50 to 102400) 100 to 25600 (Extended Mode:50 to 25600)
Shutter 30 to 1/4000 Second , Bulb Mode Type: Electronic & Mechanical
Speed: 1/8000 to 30 Second , Bulb Mode
Exposure Modes Modes: Aperture Priority, Manual, Program, Shutter Priority
Metering Range: EV -3.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -3 EV to +3 EV (in 1/3, 1/2 EV Steps)
Modes: Aperture Priority, Auto, Manual, Programmed Auto, Scene Selection, Shutter Priority, Sweep Panorama
Metering Range: EV -1.0 to EV 20.0
Compensation: -5 EV to +5 EV (in 1/3 or 1/2 EV Steps)
Buffer/Continuous Shooting Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for Unlimited Frames in JPEG Format
Up to 5 fps at 26.2 MP for up to 50 Frames in Raw Format
Up to 5 fps at 24 MP for up to 50 Frames

As you can see Canon EOS RP features extended ISO range compared to  Sony A7 II Camera. Canon EOS RP features ISO range starting from 100-40,000 in standard Range and 50-102400 in Extended Range.

Whereas, Sony A7II camera features Standard ISO range from 100-25600 and you also have a option to push your ISO range to ISO 50.

In general more ISO range means better low-light performance. But with Sony A7 II camera you are also getting  5 axis  Image stabilization system. So, when you are shooting in low light environment  you can hit more lower shutter speed (upto 5 stop) when compared to Canon EOS RP camera.

One of the best thing is you don’t have to worry about a bit while using Prime lenses or third party lenses with your camera. Since, image stabilization will help you all the time despite of type of lenses you are using.

Canon EOS RP camera can record Videos in 4K whereas the Sony A7II camera limited to Full HD video recording mode only.

But Keep in Mind the Canon EOS RP Camera have some issues in 4K video recording mode

Limitations of Canon EOS RP in 4K Mode

  1. Canon EOS RP uses the APS-C Portion of the sensor, so you will be getting very limited dynamic range
  2. Canon EOS RP camera 4K video mode suffers from 1.6X Crop factor.
  3. Canon EOS RP camera doesn’t have DPAF support when you are recording 4K videos.

Limitation of Canon EOS RP camera in Full HD Video Mode

In Canon EOS RP camera is missing 24p frame option in Full HD and HD recording mode.

Sony A7 II Camera doesn’t miss any standard recording option in Full HD video mode.

At the same time Sony A7 II camera 24 MP BSI CMOS Video Dynamic range is better compared to Canon EOS RP 26MP CMOS camera.

8Bit output with S-Log2 whereas Canon EOS RP has 8bit output without C-log.

DPAF vs HYBRID – Auto Focus

Focus Control  
Focus Type Auto & Manual Focus Auto & Manual Focus
Continuous Focus Continuous AF upto 3 FPS Continuous AF upto 5 FPS
Autofocus Points Phase Detection: 4779 Phase Detection: 117
Contrast Detection: 25

Canon clearly have a upper hand in the specs sheet while mentioning their EOS RP camera carry have more than 4K AF area zones or segments.

So, it’s very clear that Canon will have more AF screen coverage .

Fastest Camera – Canon EOS RP or Sony A7 II ?

Canon EOS RP camera fails to give Continuous AF support at 5FPS more, Continuous AF starts from 3 FPS and Subject tracking goes down upto 2.6 FPS.

Sony A7 II camera features Continuous shooting speed 5 FPS full time AF support and very accurate Eye AF support while recording videos.

Which one has better Display ?

Viewfinder/Display  
Viewfinder Type Electronic Electronic
Viewfinder Size 0.39″ 0.5″
Viewfinder Pixel Count 2,360,000 2,359,296
Viewfinder Eye Point 22.00 mm 27.00 mm
Viewfinder Coverage 100% 100%
Viewfinder Magnification Approx. 0.70x Approx. 0.71x
Diopter Adjustment -4 to +1 m -4 to +3 m
Display Screen 3″ Rear Screen Swivel Touchscreen LCD (1,040,000) 3″  Tilting LCD (1,228,800)
Screen Coverage 100% 100%

Canon EOS RP camera features better touch screen and viewfinder, compared to Sony A7II camera.

Other Features

Sony A7 II camera features better battery life (100+ shots),  You will be also getting Environmental sealing  with Sony A7 II camera. No weather sealing in Canon EOS RP.

Comparatively if we talk about list of lenses available, then we don’t have more than 10 lenses for Canon EOS RF Mount camera at the time I am writing this post. Whereas, Sony A7II camera have 100+ lenses out there specifically made for Sony FE Mount cameras.

Verdict:

For Hybrid Shooters we have no option other than Canon EOS RP, nature of display Canon EOS RP is more user friendly compared to Sony A7 II. For still shooters we recommend Sony A7 II camera, since the camera features better dynamic range, In-body 5 axis Image Stabilization system and better continuous drive.

Buy at Amazon Sony A7 II camera [Body only] A7 II camera [28-70mm]

Take a look at the reviews, videos and sample images of the Sony A7II camera, the Sony A7II was the Sony first FF Mirrorless camera to feature 5 axis image stabilization, take a look at the detailed

Sony A7 II video review bu Tony North-up

Review at F Stoppers

What I Liked

  • In-body five-axis image stabilization works incredibly well for photos.
  • The ergonomics are great. It fits well in your hand thanks to the beefy grip and is an all-around positive experience carrying it.
  • The new forward-angled DSLR-like shutter button feels excellent to use.
  • There are plentiful customizable buttons on the body.
  • The all metal lens mount keeps the lenses feeling stiff and non-wobbly when mounted, a problem that some of the original Sony a7 and Sony a7R bodies have.
  • Favorable price compared to the other cameras in the Sony a7 line.

Imagine resource also reviews the Sony A7II camera, take a look at the key points below…

  • Superb JPEG image quality at low to moderate ISOs
  • Excellent sharpness with few sharpening artifacts
  • Very good dynamic range
  • Very good high ISO performance, particularly in RAW files
  • Excellent 5-axis image stabilization
  • IS capabilities with nearly any lens, native or otherwise
  • IS is great for stationary, handheld video
  • Improved handgrip and ergonomics
  • Improved start-up speed
  • Stronger, all-metal lens mount and flange from A7S
  • AF, particularly continuous AF, felt fast and was usable for fast-paced subjects in real-world testing
  • Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC
  • 50Mbps XAVC S format video
  • 1080/60p or 24p clean HDMI output (4:2:2 8-bit)
  • Simultaneous HDMI out + internal recording to memory card
  • Very good print quality results

The Sony A7II also received sliver award from dpreview

The Sony a7 II, as stand-alone product, is very impressive. It offers a good 24MP sensor, in a smaller-than-a-DSLR package, with robust image stabilization, an articulating screen, a very high-res EVF/ LCD, plus a host of incredibly useful video features. Custom buttons and dials are also plentiful, AF accuracy is good, and it can even subject track with a reasonable degree of success.

Handheld footage from the Sony A7II using manual lenses so effectively only getting 3-axis stabilisation rather than 5-axis that the camera is capable of. These tests are shot on boats, motorbikes and on the street to show how the camera may be used handheld without a tripod.

Images captured via Sony A7 II camera

Nicolamaiani  – Yes, I did. Via ALL kit Nikon and Sony go with a new outfit . It was not an easy choice, or because I always took with Nikon, or because the Mirrorless Fullframe have little more than a year on the shoulders, but since the machines would arrive due to change anyway because at the end of life, I said, “why not change the system? New season, new system “. So here is that I have taken 2 Sony A7 II , the 55mm f1.8 Zeiss FE and the brand new 28mm f2.0 Sony FE (which I received on the day before the wedding). Here I added 2 flash Yongnuo YN-560 MKIII and their commander, the Yongnuo YN-560tx . And with that I went for my first marriage weblog Sony.

Sony A7II vs. Nikon DF - High ISO TEST

nikon-df-vs-sony-a7-ii-imgwe have done this specification comparison review based on our user request, Now take a look at the image analysis below…

ISO 12800 – AT ISO 12800 Sony image is slightly bigger due to the higher resolution fullframe sensor, I can clearly notice at 12800 Nikon is showing bit more details … compared to the Sony A7 II… It’s look like Sony is using stron noise reduction filter compared to Nikon DF.
Sony A7II vs. Nikon DF
ISO 25600 – AT ISO 25600 the Nikon DF camera is showing bit more details and better color output compared to A7 II.

Despite of being old, the Nikon DF is undoubtedly have better image quality compared to Sony A7 II , hence we highly recommend you to buy the Nikon DF camera is you care about image quality.

Sony A7II Can Capture 48 Megapixel Image [Rumor]

A7II-camera-image
If we believe the current rumors floating over the web, Sony engineers working on high resolution mode that will enable users to create 48Megapixel (super high resolution) image files from the current Sony A7II camera, the A7II will capture multiple shot of same subject by moving the sensor bit by bit (thanks to presence of 5-axis IS system) and will generate a single composite image of 48 MP, same working principle as of Olympus E-M5 II camera.

High ISO Test - Nikon D750 vs Sony A7 II vs Sony A7s

Take a look at the High ISO test between the Nikon D750 vs Sony A7 II vs Sony A7s, the High ISO test is published by French website focus-numerique…,

Nikon-D750-vs-Sony-A7-II-imBefore we start we must clear the basic that the Nikon D750 features 24.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor,  Sony A7 II has a 24.3MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor and the Sony A7s built with a 12.2MP Full-Frame Exmor CMOS Sensor.

Out of all these three sensors the Sony A7 II only features hybrid CMOS Fullframe AF sensor with active phase AF points (and also the A7 II is world first fullframe mirrorless camera to feature 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization with 4.5 stops of compensation ), so if you are inclined towards sports photography you should go with Sony A7 II since both the A7 II and Nikon D750 have almost same image quality.

Sony A7s does showing better noise control compared to the other two camera, so if you want a lowlight monster you should buy the Sony A7s camera.
