Need help choosing between the A7 and A7r
Mar 20, 2014

I've pretty much settled on the A7, but am still considering the A7R. I would especially like to hear from anyone who started with the A7 and felt it necessary to move up to the A7R and why you did so.

I will be using it mostly for nature/landscape shots. Planning on starting out with some lenses in my collection(Canon FD primes and Novoflex adapter, also some Pentax 6x7 Takumar primes 55, 75, 105 and 200mm after I find an adapter for 6x7), and adding a Canon 17-40mm f/4 L and Metabones adapter.  The cost difference between the A7 and A7R will just about pay for a used copy of the Canon zoom plus Metabones adapter.

Thanks in advance for helping me choose between two great cameras.
