In reply to Alex Notpro, Mar 4, 2014

I moved from the Canon 5DII to the Olympus EM-5, and have been completely happy with it. Greater DR and better IQ -- good enough for very sharp A2 prints. No reason to change, but I plan to get the A7R, hoping to get the equivalent of medium format film IQ when using my Canon lenses with the Metabones adapter for landscapes and nature photos.

On the basis of all information available here, what will I miss in comparison to the EM-5?

IBIS -- yes, but I plan to use the A7R mostly on tripod.

Touch sensitive LCD -- yes, definitely, since I have become used to select the (smallest) focusing area by tipping on the LCD.

Perhaps: the ability to determine and adjust the optimal exposure visually in the EVF.
