I have A7 and FE35, the so-called fastest AF in the current FE lines. I find its AF comparable with my nikon D90 with sigma HSM lens and nex5R with kit lens. But I don't think its good enough to match the similar price DSLR.

Also that's just Single mode. The Continuous mode is rather poor. Now Im considering Olympus omd E1 and Fuji XT1 as a more versatile travel camera.

I really feel that A7 is a super image quality camera and it's perfect with prime lens, very ideal for serious event, portrait, and static object. However, the build does not feel very durable,  AF is relatively slow,  and the zoom lens size is not ideal (at least from 24-70 and 70-200).  All these concerns are important for travel and quick shooting. I really hope Fuji XT1 can be the one I'm looking for.
