I wish the AF on the A7RII was a bit faster. I certainly don't need the high res. The A9 would be a great camera if it weren't a bajillion dollars. So I'm hoping the A7III will come out within the next year or so with a slimmed down feature set but faster auto focus and not a huge price tag.

I am looking forward to a decent camera from Sony that has no star eater. I'll pass on the A7rIII.

That's easy: A7R...and it has apps too.

Fred, Already own one from the day it was released/available.

That could use a softer shutter though.

Not upgrading this round. Very happy with the rII. I make no money from this, so it makes no sense at this time. Did i really say that?, .

I'm in no rush.

I want to see more real world experience by real world photographers before making the jump, particularly with regard to AF.

Sorry, I meant I was happy too, I bought yours!

Id been on the fence since I just bought a Kolari UT A7, which I really like using but I miss having AF when the situation requires. Id looked at A7RIIs over the past few weeks but convinced myself to wait for the A7III release everyone was predicting. Became a pretty clear choice though to grab one. A7III is later Q1 2018 at best now.

Nope. I would've if the full frame 4K was better but it's essentially the same as the Rii. I also never had any issues with the autofocus speed of the Rii so... yeah nope lol

I am most likely keeping my A7Rii for the apps and buying a second body (A9 / A7RiiI unsure). After all, its good to be able to use another camera when one is taking Timelapse / Star Trails!

Sticking with A7s until the A7r4 can match lowlight

Until my A7RII is the weakest link in my photographic quality production chain (rather than my very imperfect skills) I will stick with it.

Not upgrading from the A7RII. It's more than enough of a camera for my needs. It's now a great time to get one of them on B&S.

I'm thinking about selling my A7rII simply because I could use the faster focusing speed. My #1 subject is my toddlers, and they move around a lot. But I'm not in a rush given that the A7rII is obviously still an exceptionally good camera. I'll wait for some reviews.

Not planning to give up my Kolari-modded rII, and I'm really happy I sold my unmodded rII when I did.

Waiting for reports on performance with EF long glass.

A7r3 + MC-11 + Canon Super-teles could be a very, very promising combination if the tracking AF is there.

With the quick death of the Rii, I may snatch another one instead of the Riii. The more it sinks in the more I'm unpleased with the app situation.

honestly im still learning to take advantage of the a7rii improvements over my a7r, ill wait to see what happens with star eater. It's funny astrophotography is why i bought a sony camera in the first place (a7r) now I sold it and got into fashion / lifestyle photography with the a7rii eye af improvements.

I don't feel comfortable buying another sony camera until they fix the a7rii stareater, they introduced that in a software update and made it so you can't downgrade. Pretty much ruined astro for me, side by side the a7r is way better. Living in Australia you can find some really dark places to take pics only an hour out of the city. When you have no light pollution the star eater bug kills it for me, especially coming from the a7r with same samyang 24/1.4 and 14/2.8.

It's sure tempting but I'm going to hold on to the RII for a little bit longer unless there's a solid improvement with adapted lenses via the MC-11 or MB.
