Sony just released its latest and most advanced full-frame, mirrorless camera, the Alpha 7 Mark II. It introduces a new optical 5-axis image stabilization technology to help lessen camera shake while you shoot under different circumstances, such as using telephoto lens, zooming in, shooting at night, or recording video. The camera’s image stabilization can still work without Optical SteadyShot if you use E-mount lenses.

It packs in a 35mm, 24.3-megapixel full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, BIONZ X image processor, and a new more accurate Fast Hybrid autofocus that is said to be 30 percent faster than previous models. Its improved tracking algorithm will help you with continuous shooting. The A7 Mark II can shoot better in low light conditions as well.

This mirrorless camera is built with a sturdy magnesium alloy for the top, front cover, and internals. It even has a robust mounting system so it can handle large telephoto lenses. Its main buttons and dials are sealed to keep out dust and moisture. It also has a White Magic LCD screen that is meant to provide you with great visibility even under bright lighting conditions.

Now, if you want to get the latest and greatest from Sony, prepare to shell out P89,999 for the body or P105,999 if you want to have the 28-70mm kit lens.
