Sony A7 II Expected To Arrive In The US Jan/Feb 2015

sony a7 II 2014 11 20 01You might recall that just last week, Sony made a surprise announcement when they unveiled the Sony A7 II full frame mirrorless camera. Not many people had seen this coming, but it did turn out to be a pleasant surprise as the upgraded features on the camera sounded pretty good, at least on paper.

That being said, Sony had announced that the camera would be sold starting in Japan come 5th of December, but they had also neglected to mention when we might be able to expect the camera to make its way stateside or to other parts of the world. Well according to Sony Alpha Rumors, word on the street has it that the camera has been pegged for a release in January/early February in 2015.

The release in early 2015 will apply to both the US, Canada, and European markets. Sony has yet to confirm this so take it with a grain of salt for now and try not to get your hopes up just yet. January and February would be when CES 2015 and CP+ 2015 will be held, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony would take the opportunity then to announce international launch dates for the camera.

Just as a quick recap on the new features of the Sony A7 II, the camera will keep the same megapixel count but has introduced a 5-axis image stabilization system that should make handheld shots less blurry, even though the Sony A7 has done a decent job so far. Sony has also improved the autofocusing and according to the company, it is 30% faster than its predecessor.

Combine that with the 5-axis stabilization, the Sony A7 II should prove to be a pretty good camera for photographers who love shooting action, but at the same time want a camera that isn’t too bulky unlike DSLRs.
