The new underwater housing for Sony A7ii is here. That means it will fit A7ii A7s ii A7r ii, same as a previous model all three variants of this magnificent camera will be able to use one housing.
Let's have a look at the lenses which you can use with this housing at the moment of it's release. First on the list is a kit lens Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS, which is great. However we noticed that majority of people are using Sony FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T* , you will be able to fit this lens inside the housing as well and of course we hope it won't be such a tight squeeze as on the previous model of A7 underwater housing. Let's have a look at these lenses
|Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS||Sony FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T*|
|Weight||426 g (0.94 bl)||426 g (0.94 bl)|
|Diameter||73mm (2,87")||73mm (2,87")|
|Length||95mm (3,74")||95mm (3,74")|
|Zoom method||Rotary (extending)||Rotary (internal)|
As mentioned in the previous post about A7 II, this underwater housing will have a system to trigger flash/strobe light, unlike it's predecessor which did not have any way to use the flash. So this system is called SYNC cable. Also in the future there will be ports available! :)
