You won't believe just how cheap this Sony full-frame camera is on Prime Day!

We are seeing some great Prime Day camera deals popping up this year, but we have just spotted these two Amazon UK offers on the full-frame Sony A7II. Which you can now buy with a standard zoom for just £769, or body only for a ridiculously-low £639. This is the camera that I would strongly recommend if you are looking for a beginner camera - or if you are an enthusiast looking to move across from DSLRs. At this price you really can't go wrong.

The Sony A7 II is a great mirrorless camera from a great family of mirrorless cameras. This 24-megapixel full-frame model is the second generation A7 (the first-ever full-frame mirrorless camera).  And the Mark II model is particularly notable as it has the Sony's built-in 5-axis image stabilization, as well as the large sensor.

£330 off the price of this second-generation full-frame mirrorless camera from the Sony A7 stable. This model adds in-body image stabilization to the mix for steadier shooting. This all adds up to a spectacular full-frame mirrorless deal (and yes, this price does include the 28-70mm zoom).

The Mark II is a serious step on the original Sony A7 (which I own myself, and bought in an Amazon sale about five years ago), 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.

The deal itself is very similar to ones we have seen in the past - but I am amazed that with current double-digit inflation and rising camera prices, that Amazon is still able to bring this camera at this price.
