I like a lot of those specs. Maybe we'll know more next week. Going to need a high quality WA for landscape on that 36MP ver.

Yes, that is the one I am interested in, and since I already have the high quality WA (Canon 24TSEII) what I am most concerned with is seeing how the offset microlenses deal with retrofocal projection (perhaps the tradeoff for shallow/M-mount success is lesser performance with adapted SLR lenses?), whether or not corners are occluded, and (strangely enough) how the 28-70 "kit" lens performs.  In this respect, I want to know if it makes any sense to treat the A7r as a replacement for my EM5 when it comes to winter landscapes.  Weather sealing, check... but is there close to 36MP of goodness to be had when compared to my "modest" 16MP with the excellent (kit!) Panasonic 14-45 (28-90)?
