I wasn't talking about performance. The A7 is an amazing camera, no doubt. Still ugly as sin though. Find someone who's not a photographer and ask them to compare the two. Only camera geeks find the K-01 ugly, because it's not what they're used to.

The triangular bump on the A7 matches nothing on the camera, the grip looks it was tacked on with screws. The body is flat like a book. Esthetically, it is simply an ungainly mess.

My original post was about design. Sony seems to have missed the aesthetics wagon here. It actually handles like the EM 1 in many ways, but it also makes it look great. And we know that the em1 is not exactly good looking. I think that ten years from now, the K01 will still look good, full frame or not.
