I have been using the a7R, EA-LA4, 70-400mm combo and also the 70-300mm and I am getting really detailed and sharp images. The only thing is you have to go by the old rule when shooting with a zoom. Your shutter speed has to be as high as the focal length. Ect. at 300mm you need to be 1/300th or faster. This images are typical of what I am seeing.

I go back to what I said before if the sensor doesn't move like with the in body IS cameras it's just a matter of getting the camera steady and using a high enough shutter speed.

I sold my E-M1 because of the low amount of keepers I was getting. I can push the ISO so much higher on the a7R there is seldom need of IS.

"Shutter shock is a myth because all you have to do is ensure that you always shoot at shutter speeds that are high enough to avoid shutter shock."

I believe I captured the essence of your argument.

By the way are you aware that the root cause of terrorism is terrorists? That's another sage nugget that took the world by storm ...
