Sony a9 II review


The Sony a9 II didn't make a huge splash in the industry when it launched, but it's certainly left an impression on us. Read our full review to see why it's got the best autofocus system we've ever seen.

When the original Sony a9 debuted three years ago, it changed our conception of what mirrorless cameras were capable of. With a full-frame sensor that could read out so fast that you could shoot blackout-free bursts at 20 fps with autofocus and shoot...

Sony a9 II Review


Blackout-free capture at 20fps ; Superlative autofocus system ; 24MP full-frame sensor ; Dust and splash protection ; 5-axis IBIS ; 4K video ; Wired and wireless file transfer

No S-Log video profiles included ; Battery doesn't match SLR rivals ; Can't switch to video when clearing image buffer

The Sony a9 II's blackout-free capture experience sets it apart from its full-frame rivals, and its 20fps subject tracking is unmatched.

Review: Sony A9 II | World's Best Autofocus Sony a9 II


Sony a9 II tempts sports photographers with the world's best autofocus.

Fabulous autofocus, high firing rate, very good quality from 14-bit raw files.

Expensive and specialized camera, some buttons are small and there is a gap between the handle and the lens.

They are not many, the improvements on the Sony a9 II, but they have made an already formidable sports camera a little faster, a little better to use, and a little more relevant as an alternative to Canon and Nikon’s fastest professional cameras. The...

Sony A9 II review


The Sony A9 II proves that incremental updates become instrumental updates, when it comes to pro shooting

Blistering burst shooting ; Incredible AF system ; Unrivaled connectivity

Menus remain obtuse ; Isn't it time for CFexpress? ; Mechanical shutter 10fps

The Sony A9 II is a fast, ferocious full-frame sports camera. Its blistering burst speed and autofocus performance are matched by its phenomenal connectivity, which promises to be a game changer for pro shooters. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark III has it beat...

Sony Alpha A9 II review


The A9 was practically perfect, but the few tweaks in the Mark II make the newer camera a more refined option for the pros.

Superb AF performance Next-gen connectivity No viewfinder blackout

Fiddly menu system No XQD/CFexpress support Limited touchscreen functionality

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Sony Alpha A9 II is only an incremental update over it predecessor. However, every single one of the 43 little bits and bobs that are different about the A9 II make the new camera a much more compelling option...
