I love this camera. I have two issues with the software and with Sony though:

1) if you were counting on time-lapse features and other useful add ons, you will need to create an account and buy them,

2) however, you may also face the issue that you cannot purchase any add-on unless you update the firmware which is very difficult...

To elaborate on the second issue, firstly allow me to clarify that I have tried four computers (a MacBook Pro and a MacPro running Yosemite, in addition to a Thinkpad and a HP Pavilion (both running Windows 7) three USB cables (including the original as recommended), and none were able to upgrade the firmware (this is a well documented issue and there are many forums with people complaining about this as well as suggesting a number of tricks to get it going...).

Finally, I am currently in the process of returning the camera to Sony, however, they have advised me to try a few more times because if they believe it to be a software fault, as opposed to a hardware fault, they will charge me for the repair and shipment costs before they return the camera back. They also suggested to get my hands on a fresh computer, fresh USB cable and try a fresh install following their instructions precisely. A little unfair to the average person who might not be able to get their hand on 4 or 5 different computers...

Pros:
• Very detailed out of the box 1080P video at full-frame 35mm sensor size so you get much shallower depth of field than standard film super 35mm size. It makes the 5D2 and 5D3 video look like SD because of how good it is. It's up there with C300 detail.
• Very beautiful stills. There's just something about the quality of them that looks really good. Some reviewers online have said they have a medium format quality to them. That might be because of the great dynamic range. Low shadow noise maybe.
•Silent shutter is an amazing feature.
•Using just about any lens is a great selling point.
•Small raw file sizes for stills is actually a breath of fresh air.
•Incredible dynamic range in stills and video (especially with Slog2)
• The king of low light for video. Similar to other high-ISO cameras for stills at similar output resolutions (ie, if you scale other raw stills down to 12MP at high ISO, some cameras look similar).
•4k mode out to a Shogun is incredible. So detailed. But the 8-bit is still a bit of a problem for grading, which is a shame.
•Metering is very good, especially with the easy-to-access dial on the top. Makes shooting in auto a real option.
•Smooth auto-ISO ramping makes for easy ramping from Indoors to Outdoors for video if you don't have clickless aperture lenses.
•Rear screen is nice and high-res.

Cons:
•You burn through batteries very quickly.
•Compatibility with EF lenses and the Metabones IV adaptor that Sony supposedly worked with Metabones on is terrible. Sometimes the camera won't turn on, sometimes it just doesn't recognise the lens and give you aperture control. It's a pain. Native E-mount and dumb lenses will be fine though.
•Ergonomics are not so great.

Verified Purchase
Already own the a7sii and bought this as an accompaniment. The camera itself does not need reviewing - it is a known stellar performer. However, the seller with the most stars (WAA Electronics) has sent me a unit that does not fill me with confidence.

Firstly, there was a free offer of a 3 year warranty. That is not true. When you click on 'Add to basket' they offer it for £45.
Secondly, there was no seal on the box and it was obvious that somebody had been in there previously.
Thirdly, the menu was in Japanese from start-up.
Fourthly, there is no receipt.

I managed to get it into English by visiting YouTube, but I suspect that this is what they call a Gray Import. I shall test it extensively over the next few weeks. Initial photos in low light using the FE 55 f1.8 at ISO1600 look good, but I bought this as a B-roll camera for video. Shall report back when I have put it through its paces.

The reviews of this camera on Amazon are quite brief, so I thought I would put together a more detailed one. Overall I think it is a really good camera, but there are some very inflated claims for its abilities, and it doesn’t quite live up to all the hype. To be honest, I would forgive some of its shortcomings if it were priced a little bit lower, but considering what other cameras are available in this price-range, I would recommend thinking very carefully before buying one of these.
I seem to be a bit unusual in that I bought this camera for still photography and not for video. It is very good for video, but I am not a skilled videographer so probably not the best person to review it on that dimension. I purchased it specifically for low-light situations as a large proportion of my photography falls into this category. I shoot low-light landscapes and cityscapes using a tripod, low-key portraits using flash, and concerts/performances: it is the latter category that I wanted this camera for as you need a relatively high shutter speed and flash is strictly forbidden in live performances. My current set-up is a Nikon D610 combined with a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, which is a large, conspicuous and heavy combination. The D610 is fairly good when you raise the ISO, certainly better than any other camera I have owned until this point, but for dimly-lit venues you have to go a little higher than I am comfortable with (i.e. over 3200). If I wanted a low-light performer from the Nikon range, the options would be the D4S at over £4k (no chance) or the DF which usually retails for around £2k, but has a peculiar retro styling which does not appeal to me.
