Re: Why to choose A7/7r over A77 ?

Thanks Mate.

I now think the best approach would be to wait and watch. My A55 is still not dead. A likely A77 upgrade in 2014 or a price drop for A99. Either of these happen and I'll jump in.

A7 with Adapter is equally or more bulky than A77 or maybe even A99. That takes away the size advantage. I would any time prefer the fast AF speed of A77/ A99.

Having said that, A7 sure is futuristic and very alluring. Having the power of Full Frame in such a small and compact body is amazing. It is going to be really difficult to hold it in my hand and still not buy. This in itself is almost irresistible http://www.sony.com.au/product/ilce-7k . Hope the system matures in 2-3 years and there are enough native FE lenses which can fit my budget. I do not expect the super cheap one like a used Beercan, but somewhere in between. Also if Sony releases some super thin lenses, it will make A7 the perfect travel camera.
