If I prefer to manually focus, should I still get the FE 55?

There isn't an on lens distance scale on the RX1R, but there is a rough one which pops up on the screen when you manual focus.

No idea if this exists on the A7. Again, something to see in a shop.

I wish the NEX had that -- do you find it handy? Or gimmicky?

The one nice thing on the RX1R which definitely disn't on the A7 is the manual aperture ring, but you can't have everything

Ah, I have a question for you: if you zoom in via Focus Assist, and while you're zoomed in, you turn the aperture ring -- does the RX1R keep metering (such that the overall brightness remains roughly the same) -- the NEX stops metering when zoomed in, and I've been curious about A7/A7r -- would be cool to know what RX1R does!
