I had the A7 for a few weeks. I did not enjoy it. By that I mean primarily the user interface and way of shooting. Maybe I've become too accustomed to the X-Pro1 but the A7 felt too much like an electronic appliance

There is no magic around lenses. Speed and image size (sensor size) means size.

I actually wonder if the FE mount will ever get faster lenses than the Fujifilm X-mount and at the same time keep the lenses compact and lightweight (and reasonably priced). After all, Fuji already has fast quality lenses: 23/1.4 (~35/2.1), 35/1.4 (~52/2.1), 56/1.2 (~85/1.8). Sony FE only has the 55/1.8, which admittedly is faster than the Fuji's 35/1.8 (but only slightly) and from the testes I've seen so far produces better image quality. But there it ends at the moment.
