The Alpha 7 II is the successor to the Alpha 7, which offers some nice upgrades on the previous model. We have the latest 5-axis in-body stabilization system, some design improvements which help reduce camera shake no matter which lens is connected to the camera body. There's also an enhanced autofocus system that uses 117 phase and 25 contact points to provide 30% faster autofocus responsiveness, as well as high bit-rate XAVC-S recording.

Some of what made its predecessor a great camera are still found in the Alpha 7 II, such as its 24.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, the 3-inch tilting LCD on the back which offers a 3:2 aspect ratio providing 1.24 million dots, the ability to tilt the screen 107 degrees upwards and 41 degrees down, shutter speeds as low as 1/8000 second, and an ISO sensitivity that hovers between 100 and 25,600.
