Well, there’s that disclaimer for U.S. customers only, that means it’s for U.S. and Canada use, and the warranty is limited from Sony and that is if it’s from Sony U.S.A. and Canada only, and if its purchase from an authorized dealer like Digital Goja, plus tons of brochures, pamphlets, instruction manuals in many different languages, you can practice your google translate here, or practice your language skills. Let’s take a look and see what is inside here. Alright, so first thing is, of course, the obligatory Sony Alpha 7 neck strap, very important, and it comes with it. Next thing. Alright, here is your power plug, this is going to allow you to charge your battery directly from your camera through USB, and it is universal voltage from 100-240 volts, and of course here is your micro USB cable, which they provide, and of course, it is a standard micro-USB cable. Remember this is USB power so you can also work with other power sources, and of course they provide you with their most popular battery right now the moment which is the NPFW-50 fully lithium 7.2 volt 1020 mA lithium power source. Now, take a look here on this side. This is definitely the lens and with a proprietary tulip lens hood. So here is your 28-70mm that’s a good perspective. Full-frame E-mount lens, and of course the tulip lens hood, let’s put that to the side, and of course last but definitely not least, here is your Sony Alpha a7II mirrorless full-frame. So there you have it the Sony Alpha a7II mirrorless full-frame camera kit with the 28-70mm OSS lens. Let’s take a closer look and see how these two guys work together. Alright, so here we have the Sony Alpha a7II mirrorless digital kit, because it does come with this lens the 28-70mm. Let’s take a look first at the body, this is there 24.3 megapixel full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor. Of course it has their Bionz X image processor, the a7II has complete moisture and dust resistant design with a magnesium alloy body, and a little bit more robust lens mount because face it, there’s a lot of us out there they’re using adapters with legacy lenses. It has faster focusing capability and the five frames per second burst rate, plus the beauty of the enhanced hybrid AF and also you have 5-axis image stabilization in the body, so that means that you have compensation for pitch, yaw, horizontal and vertical, shift and roll. So all that means that it allows you to work with a variety of different lenses, whether there are original E-mount or other legacy lenses with it. It does recording Full HD, in S-video, what they call XAVC S video, or S-Log 2 Gamma. Notice that you have an XGA 2.36 million OLED electronic viewfinder, and of course you’re very popular 3-inch tilting LCD monitor with 1,228,000 dot, it does have built-in Wi-Fi and NFC capability. There’s your NFC connection. And it does work with the SD XC cards, and notice that you have your fully customizable buttons, you have custom one, two, and three. And you can go into your menu and change the different preferences, so you can customize which button does what for you. Now let’s take a closer look at the lens. Here is their E-mount 28 mm full-frame. This guy is a 3.5.5.6 28-70mm with optical stabilization system built into the lens, so that means it works in conjunction also with the image stabilization in the body. Has one ED lens and 3 aspherical elements. Notice, that it does come with a proprietary tulip lens hood which is reversible, and a very common 55 mm filter thread size. So it means you get some really good UV, CPL, ND filters out there. It is also capable of working with APS-C sized image sensors, but that means it will switch over to a 42-105 mm. Has multi-layer coating linear autofocus with internal focusing, so that means that the lens is not going to rotate when you do your manual full-time focus here, and of course a nice smooth transition in 28-70mm zoom. It is dust and moisture resistant construction, so in combination with your a7II body, you have a really rugged working environment here. Seven blade circular diaphragm, to give you that beautiful boca, and very easy to mount to do is line up the little dot with a dot on the body, and twist and there you have it. So there’s a beautiful all around shooting full-frame kit. Your Sony Alpha a7II with your 28-70mm OSS lens.

  1. I'm about to buy my first camera, and I'm between the Canon 80D + 18/135mm kit or this kit (Sony A7ii + 28/70mm) but which one you recommend me, my purpose with the camera are pretty much photo not that many videos, I now the full frame of the Sony makes it a good option. And also what is the main difference between the 24/70mm and the 28/70mm for the sonny ? Thank you

  2. I have the kit lens for Sony a7 series cameras.
    The Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 is very sharp on the center but soft on the corners. It is light for its size. The 28mm is significantly less wide than the 24mm. Its image stabilization isn't something impressive.
    The Sony a7 series cameras are 200-300$ cheaper without the kit lens. I would suggest instead of the kit lens to spend 300-400$ more and buy the Sony Zeiss FE 24-70mm f/4 OSS ZA lens. It has sharp corners and better contrast, it is brighter and with a metal construction. The 25-70mm focal range is classic in photography and support nearly all situation. The ideal focal range for travelers is the 24-105mm that Canon and Sigma offer or the Nikon 24-120mm. Unfortunately Sony doesn't offer something similar yet for its full frame mirrorless cameras.

  3. Hi, Do you know if it has silent autofocusing while filming? And the display, can you flip it so you can see yourself if you sit in front of the camera? I need it for videos. Thank you and btw great review I finally got to see the whole kid.
