Sony a7R II

The Sony a7R II packs a punch with 42 megapixels, 4k video and 5-axis VR.

Sony announced a doozy of a camera today with the Sony a7R II. The specification list reads as if Sony is ready to kill off all the DSLRs from Nikon and Canon. The a7R II is impressive and I have to wonder how long it will take until Nikon and Canon respond with something new of their own to match this impressive feature set.
