No.  Actually I'm a former Sony NEX-7 user going the other way.  I love the Sony's but their convoluted roadmap makes me very nervous.  After investing in nice Sony E-Mount Zeiss glass its was very disappointing to learn that all my lenses would only work in crop mode on the A7/A7r and that all that investment is somewhat obsolete.  Also, in looking at the Sony roadmap, it will take them the next few years to complete their lens line-up.

I have since sold all of my Sony equipment, and pre-ordered the E-X2.  Fuji's lens roadmap is much more thought through.  I also like the way they have supported users of existing camera's with firmware updates.  I think I would say I'm now 95% in the Fuji camp, as I'm feeling they are more focused on me as the customer and protecting my investment in equipment.

My two cents from a frustrated, ex-Sony user ...
