The Sony A7 II features a 5 axis IS system that significantly reduces the blur caused by the camera shake and it also an amazing on-chip AF system that offers excellent AF with its 117+25 AF points. On the other hand the Sony A7S features a uniquely high ISO range of 50-409600 and is capable of recording 4K videos.

Megapixel: the Sony A7 II features a full frame 24.3MP sensor that delivers high quality image with rich detailing and the image received can further be cropped and processed without losing its quality. While the A7S features a full frame 12.2MP sensor that produces good quality images but of certainly low quality than that of A7 II.

Image Stabilization: The Sony A7 II features a rare 5-axis image stabilization system that compensates with the blur created due to unintentional movement of the camera into any of the five directions horizontal shift, vertical shift, rotary motion, as well as the yaw and pitch. On the other hand A7S is designed without any IS system.

AF system: the A7 II is built with an on-chip hybrid AF system that offers a total of 117+25 AF points with both contrast detect and phase detect modes. The phase detect mode allows quick focusing while the contrast detect mode fine tunes the focused area resulting in great AF experience. On the other hand the A7s features a normal contrast detect AF system with 25 AF points and the AF works brilliantly even in the low lightning conditions with sensitivity up to -4EV.

ISO: the A7S offers an amazing ISO range of 50-409600 that allows the user to capture super smooth ISO at low ISO and for shooting fast objects with clarity it offers a magnificent high ISO range. On the other hand A7 II has an ISO range of just 50-51200.

Video: the A7S allows the user to capture 4K videos @30fps, full HD videos @60fps and HD 720p @120fps. On the other hand the A7s allows the user to just capture full HD 1080p videos @60fps.

 Verdict: The Sony A7s is a excellent tool for those who want to shoot noise less images under low light condition… not only that the Sony A7s also 4K videos… but if you are sports shooter you may go for recently announce A7 II camera.
