My guess is that Sony/Zeiss will produce the required lenses before Canon has the required sensor but that is nothing more than speculation on my part.

Maybe, but my observation is that the very-good-to-excellent prime lenses for the A7 family are prohibitively expensive, relatively slow, and without IS. No thanks.

I don't find them prohibitively expensive but I guess that is a matter of personal perception/circumstances.

The zoom and the 55 are not slow in my book. The 35 is slow for a prime but the design brief was small not fast.

If you want fast simply mount a Canon 35L (or a .95 Nockton). Problem solved.

I don't need no stinckin' IS on those little tiny lenses but in fairness I inherited a decent set of wrists.

Canon 24-70 f/2.8 or 70-200 f/2.8? Yeah, I prefer IS.
