What experts liked
The stabilization corrects X and Y axis movements as well as pitch, roll and yaw for both still and movie recording.

The camera was mostly quick to focus, thanks to the improved autofocus system that packs 117 wide-area phase-detection AF points and 25 contrast-detection AF points.

The 5-axis IBIS is really effective with native lenses, making the camera a lot more useful when shooting in low-light conditions
- Photography Life
The mirrorless, full-frame Sony Alpha 7 II improves on its predecessor with in-body stabilization, faster autofocus, and a better ergonomic design, and earns Editors' Choice honors in the process.

But the a7 II has some flaws, including finicky autofocus and slow write speeds — making this investment worthwhile for some photographers but not for others.
