This was one of the best Black Friday deals this year - but now this budget-priced mirrorless bargain is being discounted again. It is not quite as low as it was in the Cyber Week sales, but with Amazon dropping the price by £270 overnight, it is still a superb deal for beginners, or for those wanting to trade up to full frame without spending a fortune.

The Sony A7 II is a great mirrorless camera from a great family of mirrorless cameras. This full-frame model is the second generation A7  - and this is a particularly good deal as it gets Sony's built-in image stabilization, as well as the large sensor - at an incredible price.

This second-generation full-frame mirrorless camera adds in-body image stabilization to the mix - for steadier shooting. This adds up to a spectacular full-frame mirrorless deal (and yes, this price does include the Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS zoom).

If you don't need a lens, Amazon even has a body-only option - with a super-low price that makes it hard to believe that you are paying just this for a full-frame mirrorless camera!

The Mark II is a serious step on the original Sony A7, but the A7 II is a completely different proposition, with Sony’s 5-axis in-body stabilization, improved autofocus and enhanced video.

The A7 II has a full-frame 24.3 megapixel sensor, hybrid contrast/phase-detection autofocus improved ergonomics and an ISO 50-25,600 ISO range. It doesn’t shoot 4K video, but it can shoot full HD at up to 60/50fps. The A7 II also has Wi-Fi built-in and a tilting rear screen.
