I agree with most of the comments BUT,...

The reason I recently acquired an A7 was because it has a Full Frame sensor.

The FF sensor generally has a higher Dynamic Range plus often times there is an impression that the FF image looks more 3d than smaller sensor images. This may be because of the greater DOF  or because the pixels are larger on a FF sensor.

IMHO FF images have a quality that the smaller sensors can not duplicate.

When comparing a f3.5 in FF lens to APS-C lens, you would need f2.3 in APS-C  to give you a comparable DOF (f3.5/1.5 = f2.3)

Yes, the FF lens are larger than APS-C, and the shutter is a bit noiser, but the images are much better looking IMHO.

If you want small street camera I would get an Olympus E-M1 or M10 plus an Olympus prime lens. Hope this doesn't confuse this discussion. :>)
