he very briefly attempts to compare the 6d/610 to the a7, but nowhere in the review does he mention evf focusing versus ovf focusing?? he ignores one of the biggest reasons for going with these sony cameras.

He did not talk much about using adapted lenses at all. If you are on a tripod, you can use the rear-LCD for magnified manual focus. With a reliable AF mechanism and back-button focus control, you don't need manual focus often.

maybe he just never uses manual focus?

At eye-level, probably not.

the phrase "d800e" never gets mentioned in the review, but he uses a7r vs. d800 in the same sentence... does he not understand that the a7r sensor setup compares directly with the d800e, not the d800? does he even know that there is such a thing as a d800e?

unfortunately he's not alone in his incompetence...

I'd say ranting about a writer w/o knowing much about him means you are more correct than you realized.
