Though the original Sony A7s was announced a little over a year ago, today we’re already seeing its successor. One of the biggest changes to the newly announces Sony A7s II is the addition of a five axis stabilization system. The camera retains a 12.2MP full frame sensor and can record full-frame 4K video internally with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. It records video in the XAVC S codec at 100 MB/s. Plus, it can shoot 120fps at full HD.

Part of this is capable with a new BIONZ X; as is the staggering high ISO range of ISO ISO 50-409600–the same as the Sony A7s.

The Sony A7s II also has 169 af points, a viewfinder with a 0.78x magnification, and the silent shooting mode allows you to shoot at 5fps.

When it comes to retailers, the camera will cost $3,000. More images of the product are after the jump.

It’s worth it to note that Sony also says that 7 new FE lenses will be coming by early 2016. At the moment, Sony has the A7, A7r, A7s, A7r Mk II, A7 Mk II and the A7s Mk II in their lineup.
