I currently have X-T1 and I'm leaning towards getting A7 as well (along with 55mm f1.8). Even though I've been content with Fuji for some time but something but FF just seem to be calling my name :).

I thought about getting the kit lens but I've read conflicting reviews and they seem to be on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Some people regard it as the best kit lens (not sure how it compares to Fuji 18-55) while others complain about it being soft and not worth buying.

Six months ago, I was also under the impression that the kit lens was not top quality, but I've learned that this was simply misinformation that some people were spreading (not having even used the lens). The FE kit lens is very good, I find no flaw with it. DXO tested it and came to the conclusion that it's pretty much as good optically as the much more expensive 24-70. Thus, it provides incredible value.

I can agree to this having used to kit lens a LOT on my A7, however, it is not as good as the Fuji kit lens in overall quality in my opinion.

Great lens however for the price. You can get a used one on ebay for 300$. its great for that price.
