As a Sony Artisan of Imagery, I had a chance to shoot the A7II a few weeks before the camera was announced. I was asked to shoot a wedding with the camera, however I did not have a wedding in the timeframe I was given so I had to get creative. Long story short, I produced a shoot with a wedding related theme. A bride goes shopping for her wedding dress, finds the dress of her dreams and wants to get married the very same day.

Sony wanted about twenty still images from me. I delivered forty or so images, plus I filmed a short story using the 4k video on the camera. I wanted to give them more than they asked for. I shot the all the images and the video shot in just under seven hours.
For the price of this camera it is absolutely amazing, In my opinion it's an A9 that shoots only 10FPS instead of 20FSP. It focuses fast, the image quality is stunning and has all the great features of other Sony Cameras, including the new longer lasting battery and silent shutter, which I use when photographing weddings.
Over all I was very pleased with the result. The fun part about this opportunity is that it challenged me to create a personal project, which needed to be executed in a timeframe that seemed impossible, and yes came with it's obstacles, but never the less I overcame the hurdles and had fun doing what I love, creating imagery with my camera.
