Re: -1 (yes, minus aperture control or AF)

Sony really has no place in this discussion.

Also, I don't see how this is a reply to OzDean and I.

It does, because it is a full frame that works with all Pentax K mount lenses.

Works with all K-mount lenses...unless you want AF or aperture control, let alone Pentax ergonomics or RAW quality. Sure most of the FF-capable lenses have aperture rings but honestly, why bother with MF and stop-down metering every time you want to slap an FA ltd on there?

I prefer shooting manual focus lenses on the A7/R than I do any SLR body. They are easier to focus and metering is perfect.

The only thing you really lose in this case is AF.

Using the A7R I get full TTL flash support with any lens ever, plus TTL is very accurate when your imaging sensor is your light meter.

+1.  My PK/A 50mm f/1.4 never had autofocus anyway.
