Hard choice. I plan on having both. I hope I actually use the XT1 enough to justify it as I am loving the A7r for now.

What is it in your style of shooting that just one of those wouldn't suffice?

So far for me, none of the mirrorless causes me to replace my DSLR's due to ease of use and flash capabilities. I find the ML systems attractive simply due to size and weight only. They do not match the speed at which I can operate a DSLR. With my X-E1 I have the 18-55, 14 and 60 macro. I'm holding off on the tele but would like one. If Sony had offered a similar package including similar sized lenses at the time of my purchase I most likely would have gone that route.

There are mixed reactions over at the Sony forum though about the A7 cameras. Not everyone loves them. I think XT1 will have more happy owners and be more universally loved as much as a camera can be.
