GX7 versus a7R

Nothing wrong with your comparison. The Oly is quite large, most of all since it has no OIS...

But you cannot equate this to mFT 24-70 equiv vs FF equiv....We hvae the Panasonic 12-35 f2,8 and as we can see it is considerably smaller. Moreover, the 35-100 f2.8 is smaller still than the 24-70 Sony FE.

I think the Oly on a GX7 is not so logical. GX7 IBIS is soso, Pany's 12-35 OIS is very good. For a cam that is not very small, but still small using the smallest lens with better stabilsition seems more logical. Most of all since reviews indicate the Oly is not better optically either...

For me, the A7R is mostly interesting with a very good wideangle lens for landscapes. All other things I think the mFT sensor will do fine.
