Wait till the camera is fast enough for snaps. The A7 and A7R shutterlag is too slow . They can only take a picture a quarter of a second AFTER you have pressed the shutter.

Not the A7, the A7 is much faster than the A7R.  Much less shutter blackout too.  Feels like a different camera.  A7 is almost instant, maybe 50 ms or so lag time.  I agree, when I shoot my A7R I avoid using it for people because of the delay, not my A7.  A7 worked great for a portrait shoot.
