level difference a7 vs a7r ii

A7(R) vs A7R II Level Difference

After having tested the A7R II extensively it felt like the integrated level got a little better than on previous A7 iterations. But is it really? Let’s find out in a more “scientific” way:

FUNCTION
Nothing ground breaking has changed about the function. In Sony’ first models you had to dig a little deeper to see the level AND what you were shooting, now it’s just on by default.

New level is finally see-through, yay.

ACCURACY
I tested the left limit and the right limit at which the level still stayed green even though it was a little tilted.

A7 vs A7R II left limit:

A7 vs A7R II level comparison - left limit at which the level still stayed green

A7 vs A7R II level comparison – left limit at which the level still stayed green

A7 vs A7R II right limit:

A7 vs A7R II level comparison - right limit (tilted to the right) at which the level still stayed green

A7 vs A7R II level comparison – right limit (tilted to the right) at which the level still stayed green

 

CONCLUSION
As you can see, the left limit on the A7 is straighter than the one on the A7R II.
And on the right limit it is the opposite. The A7 is worse than the A7R II.
Even though this is not a big scientific test, all in all, I do not see any big improvements made on the in-camera level.
