I'm specifically interested in USABILITY of these cameras, how they handle in the field, etc...

A7 battery life is miserable vs E-M1

I miss fully articulated LCD of my pre E-M1 GH3 camera (both in A7 and in E-M1)

I find a dedicated exposure comp in A7 dial totally useless

more effort to make zebra in A7 show raw clipping vs real time blinkies in E-M1

m43 CDAF (any latest Olympus of Panasonic camera) runs circles around A7 w/ PDAF on sensor

stupid situation with flashes shoe mounts in Sony system

face detection implementation is worse in A7 vs both GH3 and E-M1

A7 has only 2 custom sets vs for example 4 in E-M1 (and in E-M1 I can reassign all useless modes on mode dial)
