THE A7 IS A DISASTER WITH WIDES.

At least if one believes this mega-test of rangefinder wides on the A7 by Ron Scheffler:

Yes it will be bad with rangefinder wide angle lenses ~ but that was to be expected, except by some Sony fanboys. It should be much better adapting wide angle retrofocal lenses - most of which were designed for SLRs and DSLRs - but then much of the size advantage goes away.

Some of Leica's newer wide angle lenses are retrofocal designs - and quite big by comparison to their older lenses. Those would probably be OK on the A7 - but they are rather costly.
