From the voting its clear that most current NEX owners are eager for FF - but are those people not concerned about their existing emount lens collection?

Yes. Got the SEL35F18 which would be pretty "useless" with an A7/A7r.
Unless it can be used for video in crop mode, of course - but I don't expect any miracles. We'll see.

I'm actually glad I didn't invest more and skipped the the 10-18mm or the 24mm f1.8 lenses.

So it will be either the A7 (next year probably) or I'll keep what I have, depending on:

- availability and quality/price of FF E-Mount prime and UWA prime/zoom lenses
- video performance with FF
- crop mode video quality
- some useful extras like connections, UI (ISO and shutter speed limits etc)

If the A7 should be lacking in those areas then I'll stick to the NEX-6 as a pocketable camera and who knows, if I should go FF some day then it might be a DSLR after all, with all the bells and whistles. The D800 is now down to 2100 Euros.
