just preorded the A7 with the 35 mm and will sell my E-M5 with lenses.

why? the A7 is not much larger than the E-M5 with a 12 mm lense or the 25 mm panaleica. and that worked great.

of course, some people miss a lot lenses in the FE mount, but if you are fine with one or two primes and maybe manual lenses, it seems to be a nobrainer

I nearly did the same, but for me there's more to consider than just the lens sizes.

The OM-Ds have that silly add-on flash, but at least you get it for nothing and it can act as a wireless flash controller that also controls output for 3 flash groups. With Sony, you either have to use one of the large Sony flashes as a controller or you have to buy a radio flash system for around £500.
