The Sony A7 II was released back in 2014, and while it's been updated by the A7 III since then, Sony has kept it in its Alpha stable.

Its age has meant it's become something of a full-frame bargain over the last few years, and one of the cheapest full-frame cameras around, but this cashback deal makes it even more accessible.

Alongside the 24MP full-frame sensor and 5-axis stabilization, you get Wi-Fi and NFC, a 2.36million dot EVF and a tilting LCD screen. The body also makes use of magnesium alloy in its build for solidity, while 5fps burst shooting allows you to capture action, with the camera's hybrid phase- and contrast-detect AF system keeping track.
