Word of advice from me, do not buy housing for a7ii camera, the battey will only last you 1 dive and you will have to open housing and replace the battery.  Upgrade to version III or IV, trust me it will be worth it

While versions III and IV do use a new battery that lasts longer, I think saying that A7II series cameras are only good for one dive is an exaggeration, unless you are using very old and weak batteries. I've been diving with A7II for 4 years now and haven't once got close to exhausting the battery during typical 2 tanks dives. Clearly the III and iV series are better cameras, but I wouldn't write off the II series just yet.

Good luck!

Moray, I have been shooting with a7ii, a7rii for several years and my dives are usually between 60-80 minutes each, if I don't do deep dives.  I take lots of photos while I dive so my experience is a7ii and a7rii will only last 1 dive, maybe 1 and a half.  Hence my feedback and although I acknowledge that each diver's experience might be different due to length of an average dive and number of shoots taken I would not call my feedback an exaggeration.  In all honesty I would not recommend a7ii or a7rii for scuba to anybody.  As for a7r iii, this camera underwater is pretty amazing and battery life a lot better, see my photos taken with a7r iii at https://www.alekmiko.com/underwater-photography
