Sony A9 II Sensor Review

Kevin Carter has just posted a full sensor review of the newly released Sony A9 II (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama) at the DxOMark.com.  Sony a9 II achieves an overall DXOMark score of 93, which puts it the 21st place in full-frame and MF sensors. That’s close to the best 24MP sensors, but a little behind the best of the higher-res sensors of 36MP and beyond.

Here is the conclusion, ” Sony says that the a9 II has the same sensor as the original a9, but as we’ve seen the new model adopts a different approach to processing, using a change in sensitivity behavior both to improve color discrimination and to widen dynamic range at higher ISOs. It’s the first time we’ve seen this and it marks a shift in strategy for Sony…The Sony a9 II is certainly a niche camera, built to compete alongside the Canon EOS-1 DX Mark II and Nikon D5. However, while it’s unlikely that individual photographers or agencies would switch from those rival cameras, bearing in mind their investment in lenses, the Sony a9 II’s high sensor performance and lower price would be tempting for newcomers thinking of entering the competitive field of sports journalism…”
