A7S vs A7S II?

Hello, just wondering if anybody can enlighten me on key differences between the a7s and a7sii, how much better the a7s ii is in lowlight at the same iso, and if you would personally think the a7s ii is worth the extra 600? Thanks!


Main improvements with the Sony A7S II camera over the Mark 1 model...
- 4K internal recording ( ONLY in Full Frame mode )
- Built-in 5 Axis image stabilizer
- Sony Log-3 profile ( better color and easier to grade than Log-2 profile )
- Low light performance is a tiny bit better but it's not a big difference

Right now there are some bugs with the A7S II camera, so you may want to wait until these things are fixed. ( probably with new firmware )

Thanks a lot Guy. I am very inexperienced with 4K, can you quickly give me a rundown on using it though this camera? I mainly shoot music videos, live events/promotions, and documentary. Will the internal 4K be worth it for me even if my viewers don't have 4K monitors?
