The A7 is a mirrorless camera with the older AF performance.   The AF accuracy is the biggest short coming of the A7 and mirrorless in general.  The A6000 changed this but the A7 and all Nex models have iffy AF especially in low light.

If I was considering an A7 I would wait.  The next version of the A7 will likely have fast PDAF.
