    I cannot comment on the A7 as I've not used that before. For my A7 II, I do notice that it focuses better than my DSLR in low light conditions, even when using the kit lens.

    Sony A7 II

    I've just purchased the A7II. Noticed that battery life drains pretty quickly. Took less than 50 pics and battery life is down to 50%. Is this a known issue with the camera? For my DSLR, a full charge allows me to shoot over 300 photos.
