The previously leaked Sony A7 II has been officially announced by Sony Japan. It’s not coming to the US just yet; however, I think Sony is probably saving the A7 II US launch for CES 2015 in a couple months. [Read more...]
It looks like the Sony A7 II specs have leaked out, which should replace the well-received Sony A7. The camera looks to get an improvement in the image stabilization and video departments.
What makes me raise my eyebrow the most is the inclusion of the XAVC S codec. There are no specs concerning video resolution of the A7 II; however, XAVC S is generally seen on Sony cameras that offer 4K video capture.

B&H has the Sony 128GB SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 memory card for $69.95 (reg. $121.95). This card has a max read speed of 94MB/s and a max write speed of 45MB/s. Compare this model to Sony’s lower tier 128GB SDXC UHS-1 card, which offers only a max read speed of 40MB/s but there’s no details on the max write speed. The lower tier card is also on sale but is only $3 cheaper.
You can see both cards for the sake of comparison here at B&H Photo. However, if you are buying one, get the card that says 94MB/s on the front. For $3 more at these sale prices, it is a heckuva deal.
Note that this deal expires November 19.
