    A7ii - The Hype is Back

    http://www.dpreview.com/articles/589...with-5-axis-is

    Joking aside, this looks to be a solid update to the A7 that promised to be so great. Reading the features, and initial takes from reviewers, most of my issues may have been addressed. The sensor image stabilization is tempting for sure.

    Yes, but the rumored A9 is way more tempting!

    Indeed!

    The A7 and A7r were a bit confusing from a naming/product position standpoint, especially when it came to the tradeoffs. Having a true A9 is a much better approach.

    Where's the stinking RX2?

    Here's the key bit of info to me:

    From SonyAlphaRumors.com "A7m2 has NOT the A6000 hybrid focus system. Thatís coming (in an advanced version) on the Sony A9."

    So, while the new focus system of the A7ii sounds much improved (supposedly 30% faster), it's still based on the super slow and inaccurate system of the previous generation. My A6000 has a completely different setup, and it is blazing fast. Thus, the A9 is definitely the one to have if you're looking for fast AF.

    Yeah, I was totally underwhelmed with the a7, it was both slow and totally inaccurate. Glad to here the 6000 is treating you better.
