Want to love the A7 but do I have to buy the FE lens?
2 months ago

Here is what I have

* Pentax primes FA50, FA31,43,77 (probably the best primes in Pentax)

* Fuji X-E1 + Zeiss 12/2.8, 32/1.8

* Trying out a A7 (thx to trade in promo) + pentax->nex adapter to see if I should go all out for A7 or all out for Fuji (get a X-T1 as the X-E1 is slow)

Got a A7 from BH and here are my prelim observations (verified by a friend who is better than LR that I am)

* Fuji prime + E1 gives sharper images for the same shot than my A7. Focussing was done by focus peak and magnification

* Images are underexposed by 1 stop

Do I have to buy the FE lenses for the full frame A7 magic? Are these observations general?
