Miss: Lenses, AF speed. Lenses, quiet shutter, lenses, battery life, lenses.

Did I say I miss the lenses?

Very limited usable lens choices the A7. The kit lens is only OK and has such a limited range it turns the A7 into a two trick pony: 35mm and 55mm. I have used the Canon adapter and it works, but AF is so slow and the lenses are so heavy one is better just using Canon FF. Most wide angle Leica mount lenses are almost useless in the corners.

Advantages: Better low light, better bokeh, USB charging (great for travel).

I recommend most wait for version 2.
