SLRLounge Tests The Sony α99 II

Marlon Richardson of SLRLounge experiences the Sony α99 II during live action scenes featuring martial artists and stunt teams at PhotoPlus 2016.

"Sony not only hangs with the Nikon and Canon big boys, it does so while enabling many more selectable AF points, wider AF coverage, doubling the resolution, and all within a smaller lighter body that uses comparatively much less expensive standard SD cards. It’s astonishing."

Richardson was especially impressed with the Sony α99 II's autofocus speed, accuracy and ability of the Hybrid Phase Detection AF system to lock on and process images compared to the Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX Mark II.
