With an incomparable new image sensor
Now, even more comprehensive quality enters the picture. With the world’s first2 back-illuminated 35 mm full-frame CMOS image sensor with 42.4 megapixels3, the Sony α7R II takes image resolution, sensitivity (up to ISO 102,4004) and speedy response to new heights. The Fast Hybrid AF system’s dense extra-wide focal plane phase-detection AF coverage keeps a subject in sharp focus entirely throughout the frame, while 5-axis image stabilization reduces blur which otherwise tends to affect handheld shots. High resolution is further enhanced by 4K movie recording featuring full pixel readout without pixel binning. With so much insight packed into such a compact form, it’s clear that there is more to life than meets the naked eye.
Higher resolution, sensitivity, and readout speed
As the world’s first2 35 mm full-frame image sensor with back-illuminated structure, this 42.4-megapixel CMOS sensor enhances light collection efficiency, expands circuitry scale, and, with the help of a quick-transmission copper wiring layer, outputs data about 3.5 times faster5, while minimizing image noise to reveal fine details in every picture.
Faster, smarter, truer processing
The BIONZ X™ image processing engine efficiently and finely tunes the new image sensor’s vast 42.4-megapixel data for truer, clearer, more natural, low-noise image depiction.
New 14-bit uncompressed RAW format
Now more format options to choose from, for unbeatable quality and range of tonal nuance.
Advanced features raise resolution even higher
Great performance achieves its full potential accompanied by an array of innovative features. With an outstanding 42.4-megapixel count, the new image sensor in the α7R II lets you explore the world in remarkable detail and the camera employs no optical low-pass filter that can compromise high resolution. To reduce image blur, the camera’s newly developed reduced-vibration shutter minimizes and Silent Shooting mode eliminates camera shake caused by shutter movement. And a growing family of FE lenses lets you witness more of the incomparable clarity that the sensor delivers from every perspective.
Make every shot look sharper
Without an optical low-pass filter that can compromise image clarity, the α7R II lets you take full advantage of the high-resolution image sensor and superior resolving power of α lenses.
Take a more steady, assured shot
The new shutter cuts vibration by about 50%5 and you can use the electronic front curtain for even less vibration and noise, so the shutter is durable enough to have been tested to 500,0007 cycles.
No camera shake from shutter movement
The Silent Shooting mode features an electronic shutter that is noiseless and causes no curtain vibration, so you can shoot high-resolution images without camera shake.
Full clarity with all lenses in a wide FE lineup
All FE lenses (35 mm full-frame compatible E-mount lenses) are developed for full-frame sensors to employ ever-higher pixel counts, so they make the most of the 42.4-megapixel performance.

Fast Hybrid AF sharpens up
Thanks to an advanced image sensor and AF algorithm, the α7R II’s Fast Hybrid AF system delivers far superior AF coverage, speed and tracking performance.
More comprehensive AF coverage
More comprehensive AF coverage
399 AF points cover 45% of the total image area — more8 than any other digital camera can match.
More speedy AF response
More speedy AF response
Accelerated data readout (thanks to back-illuminated sensor) and the Fast Hybrid AF system raise AF speed by 40%5.
More continuous shooting capability
Fast readout and advanced algorithm make predictive subject tracking extra-precise for 5fps shooting.
Fast Hybrid AF for movies
This system’s extra-precise, smooth focusing perfectly suits the higher requirements of 4K movies.
Phase-detection AF with A-mount lens
Advantages of the phase-detection AF are assured even with an A-mount lens mounted9 via LA-EA3 (LA-EA110).
5-axis image stabilization in full-frame glory
Fine-tuned for high-resolution image sensors
To optimize the benefit of the α7R II’s amazing high-resolution capability, especially when shooting unpredictable action or while you’re in motion, the act of shooting should be as steady as possible—otherwise, even slight camera shake can risk blurring the shot. The 5-axis image stabilization system is carefully fine-tuned to match the 42.4-megapixel performance of the α7R II, so you can zoom in on faraway subjects, shoot close-ups and capture night scenes with minimal camera shake blur to achieve maximum clarity.
Neutralizing all kinds of camera shake
Compensation for five types of camera shake and minimal blur even in night shots show how the α7R II clearly makes the most of the image sensor’s 42.4-megapixel3 resolution.
Use your favorite lenses with minimal camera shake
Gain unparalleled handheld shooting freedom using many of your favorite lenses. The short flange-back distance in the E-mount α7R II contributes to broad lens compatibility.

4K movie quality hits an all-time high
The ultimate high-resolution movie experience
You can see how the α7R II is optimized for recording 4K (QFHD: 3,840 x 2,160) movies, particularly in Super 35 mm format, as it processes readout data from every pixel without pixel binning, to effectively suppress jaggies and more. The resulting footage exhibits visibly sharper, finer, more subtle detail than typical 4K movies. Also, as the first2 full-frame camera that can record movies at 4K resolution in the 35 mm full-frame format, the α7R II extends your power to express qualities of vision that the newly developed, back-illuminated full-frame image sensor makes possible.
Shoot footage in proper perspective
Select full-frame or Super 35 mm format when shooting in Full HD or 4K resolution, depending on your creative intentions. Either way, everything looks brilliant from edge to edge.
Frame as you see fit
High-bitrate XAVC S format
High-bitrate XAVC S format11
XAVC S format now supports 4K recording at maximum 100 Mbps bitrate as well as Full HD recording at 50 Mbps, so the α7R II can capture movies filled with finely detailed movement.
Focus on strength, smarts and reliability
The α7R II is the toughest, most durable α camera ever made, solidly engineered for action under all conditions, even with large lenses attached. It’s also designed with sophistication, integrating advanced functions that seamlessly complement the image sensor’s extraordinary 42.4-megapixel high resolution.
