A Little less than a month in, and I am starting to really like using the A7ii.
This camera has not been all love all the time. The files are noisy over iso 400, the focus peaking is not very accurate wide open, and the white balance has a very strange sense of humour while the dynamic range and exposure latitude of the raw files just isn't that amazing. However what it does do well, it does very well.
This camera does great in daylight situations. It also does very well in interview/studio situations.
One thing that is irritating me is the low pass filter. I see tremendous potential for this camera system. The precision of focusing directly from the sensor, while zoomed in, is unsurpassed. The workflow reminds me of shooting medium format, without the resolution down to the pixel. If the sharpness would be from the sensor as well as the lenses, I would be head over heels in love. When Sony comes out with an A7r or s replacement I will upgrade.
In the captions of the photos in this post, i am providing some information regarding subject and lenses.
The most impressed I have been so far was with the portraits below. I was assigned to shoot an interview and portrait of Swiss TV personality Röbi Koller. We were to meet in a photo studio, though this backdrop had nothing to do with our story. He interrupted the interview three times to ask me about my camera and lenses. Though slightly awkward toward the writer, this was a great help to me when it came to engaging him during the shoot. In both images he is sitting at a table with a big window to my right. In one image I used an Elinchrom Quatra in a silver interior softbox behind him to my left. The rest of the light is coming in from the window. It was an overcast day, so I thought I needed to make a light sandwich in order to make the image more dynamic. In the end I shut off my flash and shot him in available light. I love the second image because there is no distraction from his eyes, and you can stare in to his face, and let it tell stories.
