Is the Sony A7rII the really first camera that can be defined as a “PRO” camera? Well according to the Chuck Norris of photography Ken Rockwell the answer is no! Actually his answer is more an insult to Sony camera owners than just a negative conclusion:
A photo hobbyist is someone who loves talking about pixels, software, apps, bit depths and especially loves playing with a zillion different brands of lenses on adapters. That’s why hobbyists and gizmo fans love this camera so much.
Hobbyists are completely different from photographers, photographic artists or pro shooters. The problem with the A7R II for use by a photographic artist like myself is that while A7R II images look great, its colors never look as great in real-world shots as I get directly from my Canons and Nikons. Most people are hobbyists and won’t notice the subtle things I do, and therefore I certainly recommend the A7R II, but for serious work, the Sony isn’t there yet.
Wow, Sony fellows will not like to read this!
Now Sony has two options: Either they make a superb A9 or they destroy Ken’s laptop so that he cannot harm them anymore
