Re: choosing between X-T1 and Sony A7

I currently own a NEX-7, and its control scheme saps all enjoyment out of shooting. From what I gather, A7/A7R have a very similar control scheme. And that's just one deal breaker among many. Another one is physics: there's no way to make a decent f/2.8 normal zoom for A7 without it being huge, expensive, and weighing a ton. That's why Sony is releasing slower lenses first, they could have just tweaked their 24-70 f/2.8 for mirrorless and released it straight out of the gate, but then disadvantages of FF would become obvious.
