Sony A7s II vs A7R II

I am a filmmaker who shoots a lot of promotional videos, documentaries, and other content.

I am leaning more towards the A7s because the low light abilities. But also want the 42 Mp photos on the A7R.

If you have an opinion on this please answer or let me know of another camera in that price range.


If you really need a hyprid camera the A7R II will be the better choice (except you need to shoot in really dark locations and cannot accept that bit of noise here and there).

The A7R II shoots 4K like the A7S II does. It even can shoot it in Super35 mode which the A7S II kind of can do but only with magnification function.

The A7R II features even better AF which is very usable in video as well and it's really handy if you shoot some documentaries.

The A7S II is made to be a fully functional filmmaker's camera and also for low light. The A7R II is the hyprid for video and photo.
