If your pictures are a guide then by all means get the A7 if you can afford it.

I don't believe in the notion that you have to buy and sell several grades of equipment before you tap into good gear. In my life I would consider that a waste of my time and money.

I lost a good number of years by not going FF because I listened to advice on dpreview.

Mistake.

If I were to to it again I would have purchased a 5D the day it was introduced.

As pointed out the A7 not a first choice when it comes to things that move.

I would also point out that FF DSLRs are by far and away better cameras in most contexts BUT; they are fairly heavy with good glass and unless you are very committed you might have a tendency to leave it home.

Again; I think you have a good eye and would find a camera that produces A7 levels of picture quality a source of pleasure.
