Terrific review.

The slowness relative to a DSLR is understandable - a trade-off one might accept for compactness.

Artifacts due to non-optional lossy RAW compression? Shutter blur? Inexcusable on a high-end camera like the a7r.

Not so troubling on the a7. No shutter bounce and since it is inexpensive for FF the RAW issue is overlookable although Sony should fix it ASAP nonetheless.

And Thom Hogan is not a Nikon fanboy. His carry everywhere camera is an R100 and his criticisms of Nikon are pretty harsh. He prefers m43 to Nex because it has a better lens line... And he is right.
