Was the last line accidentally truncated? Seems it should have ended with "... in price".

I give Sony credit for trying something different here. When it comes to weight and dimension, though, the practical figures should include the adapter as well until there's a robust native lens lineup. The other issue around dimension relates back to the low shot life. I don't know how many "pros" will buy the A7 but most will find it necessary to include the grip just to get the shot life up to a D800/E.

Yikes!  CIPA 320 shots on a charge.  That means about 200 in practice with everything else going on and the LCD turning on/off and powering up the EVF and going in and out of standby.  One will have to carry around a pocket full of charged batteries like they recommend with the Sigma DP** cameras.  I noticed the K3 CIPA count dropped a bit as well.

Cheers.
