At a wedding you are being paid to do just that and an A7R brings nothing to the table to help you meet your responsibilities to the client.

I don't know about A7r, but I feel A7 is certainly good enough to nail the moments. I am not going to lie, I missed focus on a shot here or there (could have been my error or camera's I don't remember) but given that I have over 1000 photos from the 2 day event (yes Indian weddings are long too along with the chaos lol), and only a fraction of them make it to the album. In grand scheme of things my few out of focus shots don't matter much.

Like I said my parents' wedding album is spectacular and it was taken in film days using manual focus. Nailing moments is about prediction and timing. i am sure the photographer missed a few shots too back then but when you are delivering an album your end product is what matters not a few shots you may or may not have nailed with better equipment.

Having said that if i was doing wedding i'd probably go buy the new A77m2 or some other camera with better AF LOL.

Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.
