A99 has User memories like you A77 for storing settings.. A7 does not that I can see

Look at the top command dial on the a7/a7r:

I like having 3 user memory modes on my a99, but 2 is still pretty good, and I like having a dedicated dial for EV adjustments.

I'm not about to run out and buy an a7 or a7r myself, but who knows if the next generation of that line might be a good upgrade to get something more portable than my current camera.
