Considering, certainly.

I swapped my Canon FF for the OM-D E-M5. It was a good move, on the whole.

But my kids move like weasels on amphetamine, so having better C-AF made the E-M1 attractive. However, the A7 with the Zeiss zoom is a very interesting alternative. In terms of cost and size, the A7 twins are equivalent to the E-M1, reinforcing the impression that the Olympus is needlessly bloated. Plus it would allow me to use my Contax-G primes. Or sell them and buy one of the very tasty Zeiss primes instead.


Of course, the 5-axis IBIS is nice, as is the wider native lens selection. But even for an owner of a nice  E-M5 system plus lenses, the A7s are quite enticing.
