Alpha a7S mkII + 24-70mm f/2.8 FE GM Lens
Full Frame Mirrorless Digital Camera Kit
The a7S II Mirrorless Digital Camera from Sony is built to impress with its sensitivity, dynamic range, resolution, speed and multimedia capabilities. Featuring a full-frame 12.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor, the a7S II is capable of internal UHD 4K recording at 30 fps with full pixel readout as well as 1080p recording at up to 120 fps, in the XAVC S format. A BIONZ X image processor combined with this full frame sensor offers expanded sensitivity to ISO 409600 and 5 fps continuous shooting with fast intelligent autofocus and low-light sensitivity to -4 EV. 5-axis SteadyShot INSIDE image stabilization is also included to compensate for vertical, horizontal, pitch, yaw, and roll camera movements.
A redeveloped recording setup includes the ability to utilize S-Log3 Gamma and S-Gamut3 in addition to S-Log2, for increasing dynamic range values by up to 1300% to better match high-end post-production workflows. For clearer monitoring potential, an enhanced Zebra function better supports working with S-Log gamma settings and a Gamma Display Assist helps to preview imagery with natural contrast by converting S-Log2 and S-Log3 settings to the ITU709 gamma for easier on-camera viewing.
This is housed inside a compact robust magnesium alloy body that incorporates a high 0.78x-magnification Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder. With a resolution of 2.36-million dots and a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, it remains easy to view even in a variety of lighting conditions and is capable of previewing exposure and settings adjustments prior to recording. A rear 3.0" 1,228,800-dot tilting LCD screen is also available. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC is also included, allowing you to pair mobile devices to the camera for wireless sharing and remote camera control.
Here the a7S II is kitted with the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, a fast and versatile standard zoom lens designed for use with full frame E-mount mirrorless digital cameras. It is also compatible with APS-C models, where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range. Its wide-angle to short telephoto perspective, combined with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, makes it a great choice in a variety of environments and lighting situations. Expect consistent performance throughout the zoom range, the ability to work in low-light conditions, and with selective focus techniques.
As part of Sony's G Master series, it is designed to produce outstanding high resolution images with a significant reduction in spherical and chromatic aberrations for notably sharp results. Optically it features three aspherical elements and two extra-low dispersion elements. One of the aspherical elements features an XA (extreme aspherical) designation, for refined surface precision and to minimize spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range. A Nano AR Coating has also been applied to individual elements to significantly minimize lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and accurate colour, and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.
Autofocus is fast and quiet, thanks to a Direct Drive SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) system as well as responsive manual focus handling. The lens is also dust- and moisture-sealed, allowing you to keep working even in difficult weather. A focus hold button and rubbberized control dials complete this impressive combination, and offer more intuitive handling in cold weather.
