The Sony A7II & 28-70mm kit is currently on massive discount at B&H. They’ve dropped the price from the A7II kit’s regular $1,598 down to a mere $998. That’s almost a 40% discount. But it’s not just the camer and lens. The kit also comes with a 32GB 90MB/sec SanDisk Extreme memory card, a spare battery and an external charger.
Shortly after releasing a bunch of software updates for their cameras and lenses, Sony releases some more to fix some of the reported problems. There are now firmware updates for six of their cameras: A9, A7rII, A7sII, A7II, A6500, and A6300. They are aimed at fixing the overheating issue that was recently reported, as well as the so-called “Star Eater” issue.

It’s really not, but I feel like the potential for a flame-war and s–t storm is so great that I have to put on a raincoat just to start laying out the words haha!
That’s right my friends, today I’m going to be talking about the Sony A7ii and why I’ve decided to ditch my entire Canon system (including a 6D & an 85mm 1.2) for a Sony setup with older manual only lenses (though I do have one modern 85mm).
So first and foremost, what prompted the switch?
