Body price is only a small part of the equation. Sony charge relatively high prices for lenses and other things - that soon mounts up if you want to build a whole system.

There seems to be a euphoric hysteria caused by the fact that the Sony A7 is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than a Nikon D610.

This euphoria  is based on two assumptions that I think are false:

  1. FF buyers are value shoppers
  2. The size, weight and cost of lenses doesn't matter

There is also a real question as to whether these "value minded" high end users will be satisfied with a very limited lens selection of very expensive lenses, or if they will buy small cameras that require the use of large lenses paired with large, heavy, and expensive adapters?
