Save $699 on the Sony Alpha a7R II digital camera. This 42MP full frame mirrorless camera with 5-axis image stabilization, featuring the world’s first (and currently only) 35mm BSI CMOS sensor, and including a hybrid autofocus system and 4K video capabilities.

It’s the fifth in the company’s a7 range of full frame cameras and the second high-resolution ‘R’ model. However, although its name and appearance are very similar to the first round of a7s, the R II arguably represents just as significant a step forwards as those first full frame mirrorless models did.

Here are some of Sony a7R II Highlight specifications:

  • 42MP Full Frame BSI CMOS sensor
  • 399 on-sensor Phase Detection points
  • 5-axis image stabilization
  • Internal 4K recording from full sensor width or ‘Super’ 35 crop
  • Picture Profile system including ITU-709 and S-Log2 gamma
  • Full magnesium alloy construction
  • 2.36m dot OLED viewfinder with 0.7x magnification
  • High speed AF with non-native lenses

The Sony a7R II (body only) is now selling for US $2,499, a reduction of $699 of its $3,198 listing price on eBay.com. Stocks are limited so you might need to be quick if you are looking to get one of these.
