Image quality is only one of many many things that make a professional camera. The A99 could probably take ten times the beating of an A7 and still come up shooting. A professional needs a camera that they can shoot the cover of a magazine one day and and an NCAA Basketball game the next. I need a camera that I can shoot all day without worrying about batteries, I need a camera that I drop to my side and not worry if it hits a door on the way out. I need a camera that I can hold literally all day without getting sore hands.

Do I want an A7? Heck yeah! Would I use it professionally? Maybe for some things. Could it be a professionals only camera? Depends on what you shoot. If its anything demanding, probably no.
