I prefer the A7 over the A7R (but this is ignorant in that I have yet to see the AF differences personally). I also am happy with the file sizes of my RAW images on my Canon 6D and the A7 is 24, so that bump should be okay. The A7R is 36 . . . ouch for my needs.

I don't mind Steve's selection. Lens choice is a big part of photography. Most of the readers of Steve Huff are not going to be legacy glass users and manual focus wizards, so AF lens options are a big consideration. I tend to agree with blue_skies above in that I am far more interested in the benefits of FF (e.g., low light and shallow DoF) to ever consider a tiny sensor. I am not even sure I'd ever go back to APS-C so the M43 series is totally out of the question even if the camera itself has all the buttons in just the right place. Meh.
