Quite different cameras.

The E-M1 is the fastest, most reliable focussing mirror less available. Early reviews suggest the A7r and unfortunately, even the A7 are on par with the R1 and R1r, which aren't renowned for their focus performance.

There are less lenses available for the new Sony mount and the fast zooms and primes coming out are going to be pro level expensive. Of course the lenses will be 3 times larger than the m43 counterparts which will make an especially big difference with long glass.

The Sony A's will get you a couple stops worth of light though...ditto for DOF and FOV.

The AF on the Fuji X camera's is not very good but still it became a cult system.
