Leica SL with Sony Alpha A7R II Overview


Let's compare Sony Alpha A7R II with Leica SL. These models are included in the Pro Mirrorless cameras. Both of these models were released in 2015. This means that differences will go a long way. Let's take a closer look.
The sensor resolution of Alpha A7R II is greater than that of SL. The difference of 18 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the first camera (Alpha A7R II), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Leica SL, the maximum ISO is greater by 24400. Alpha A7R II has image stabilization(5-axis Sensor-shift), SL doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch tilting screen.
Both cameras have a electronic viewfinder. Viewfinder SL has a higher resolution of 4400k dots, Alpha A7R II has a resolution of 2359k dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Sony Alpha A7R II has 11.0 fps continuous shooting.
