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.

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

Ditto for the R1 and R1r.  Something to keep in mind however, when choosing the new A's.

Speaking of Fuji, I bought an X-E1 almost a year ago.  I also have an E-M5.  I was constantly frustrated by the X-E1's unreliable focus vs. the E-M5 and ended up shelving it...until recently when I actually got it back out to clean up and sell.  Updated the X-E1's firmware and the focus performance went from unreliable to pretty good...though still no match for the E-M5.
