DPReview Names α7 II "Best Overall Full Frame"

In the DPReview 2016 roundup of interchangeable lens cameras priced between $1200 and $2000, the Sony a7 II won "Best Overall". The α7 II beat out fully reviewed models by Canon and Nikon to take top honors.

"The mirrorless α7 II is more adaptable, accepting a wide range of 3rd-party lenses via adapters, and focusing many of them quickly and continuously using on-sensor phase detection. There's a growing family of high quality native E-mount lenses as well. Low light Raw performance lags behind most full-frame cameras, but the JPEG engine is one of the most intelligent in terms of sharpness and noise reduction we've ever seen." -DPReview.com
