Yes, I am tempted. Sony is to be applauded for pushing things forward, unlike dinosaurs Canon and Nikon.

What I like about the A7

1) full frame, light weight, relatively compact

2) I can use my Nikon lenses at original focal length on the A7

3) it doesn't have the X-Trans RAW issues

What I don't like about the A7

1) no IBIS so difficult/impossible to get high quality results shooting handheld with longer legacy glass on the A7r

2) it's a first generation camera

3) other brands will hopefully follow within 1-2 years

4) loud shutter (I'm spoilt by the silent leaf shutter of the X100)

5) native lenses are quite expensive

6) flash system needs further development like radio control, and ease of use a la Nikon
