I have a Sony A7R II (and also a Nex 6). I used Canon for many years, culminating in a Canon 5D II, but I found them very heavy to carry as I got older, especially with the L glass lenses attached. So I tried the Nex 6 and then the A7. They were lighter and produced good pics. When the A7R II was released, I thought the in body image stabilisation would help with my shaky hands (I am 74 years old now).
So now I use the A7R Mk II and find it light and easy to handle, I mostly use prime lenses. My favourite lens is my Zeiss Batis 25mm, but I also have the Sony Zeiss 35mm F/2.8 and several old Minolta primes.
I have looked up the product that supports and steadies the camera. It can be viewed at
I will be experimenting with this neck strap gimic on 2/14-2/16 2019 at our annual RC jet rally. If interested in seeing gorgeous turbine-powered, 200 mph jet models and sharpening your panning skill see the club website www.cvrcclub.com for directions.
A few nice tweaks. But is this is worth buying if you own a previous crop frame Sony? Maybe an upgrade for the 6000 albeit at a several hundred dollar price. No in-body stabilization so not worth moving to from my a6300. Overall a downgrade from the 6500.
