At this moment I use Canon 24-70L/2.8 II on A7R thru Metabones III adapter. It makes sense to me as shared with 5D3. It works great and I used lots in my recent central EU trip. I only posted a few photos in the link below and tons of others to be processed. Photos in EXIF shown as 24-70/2.8 OSS is from 24-70L II, 70-200/4.0 OSS is from 70-200L/4.0 IS.

I probably will not buy FE 24-70/4.0 OSS as it doesn't perform well enough at 24mm and 70mm, the two ends I use most with 24-70 zoom. I will wait the rumored FE 16-35/4.0 OSS. Will acquire it if it's good enough. Then I'd have a dream travelling setup - FE 16-35/4.0 OSS, FE 55/1.8 (plan to buy), FE 70-200/4.0 OSS (that should be excellent on spec, and guess will edge out 70-200L/4.0 IS which itself is a stellar zoom although a bit heavier/larger). I can live with gaps between 35-55mm and 55-70mm by moving my feet.
