Superior image quality

Startling depth in detail

A 42.4-megapixel back-illuminated 35mm full-frame Exmor R™ CMOS sensor, advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine and fixed-lens design deliver unrivaled resolution and enhanced sensitivity. These technological advances keep images exquisitely detailed, natural and well exposed all the way from their centers to edges, regardless of shooting conditions.

  • ZEISS® Sonnar T* 35mm F2 lens
  • BIONZ X image processing engine

Greater AF speed, precision and coverage

Featuring 399 focal plane phase-detection AF points

With advanced phase- and contrast-detection capabilities, the Fast Hybrid AF system in the RX1R II provides unconventionally speedy, accurate wide-area autofocus coverage and tracking performance. You will be able to shoot better, clearer stills at every opportunity without missing a single moment.

Wider AF coverage — Faster AF response

399 phase-detection AF points are packed within a large area of the image (providing coverage of nearly half of the entire frame) and AF response is about 30% faster.

Wider AF coverage — Faster AF response
Seize the moment

Seize the moment

New AF-C focus mode and up to 5fps continuous shooting capabilities along with AF tracking help to ensure that you can reliably capture more climactic moments.

World’s first optical variable low-pass filter

Control LPF effect to achieve your intention in a shot

You can choose from three optical variable low-pass filter effect settings: Off (to prioritize image resolution), Hi (to reduce moiré and color artifacts) and Standard (to balance those priorities). Each in its own way takes optimal advantage of the image sensor’s 42.4-megapixel resolution to deliver the ultimate image quality according to shooting intention and situation.

Double-duty LPF control for added effect

How does the RX1R II provide double duty that would otherwise require more than one conventional camera? Splitting of incident light flux [1] is controlled by varying voltage to the liquid crystal [3] between low-pass filter 1 [2] and low-pass filter 2 [4] in order to activate, deactivate and modify low-pass filter effect. LPF bracketing simplifies comparison of LPF effects.

Advanced usability

Compact enough to take anywhere, the RX1R II features sleek ergonomic controls, retractable EVF, tiltable LCD screen and more.
