Only when de emphasizing size in the comparison of A7r and d800.

If you want to get full resolution the size is determined not by the camera.

For some people in some circumstances, size and weight of the camera kit is a factor that determines which kit to bring along.

If I want small size and weight and going to handhold A7r is out of question. The way I see A7r -- it is more of a slightly crippled digital back than a camera.

On the contrary, A7 is IMHO a rather good choice if EVF is no obstacle and one has money for adequate set of lenses; or can use just 1 or 2 primes and focus manually.

I do not see Thom as a fanboy. What would be the reason for him to be one?

any idea why Thom thinks for normal exposures ISO 200 is preferable to ISO 100?

In my experience at ISO 100 shadows are plugged beyond extracting details.
