there is no question the A7 isn't going to have the blinding fast focusing (saw a sample video on Youtube to confirm it). Not to mention one of the primary reasons to get an EM1, the IBIS which is like SteadyCam on video and a savior for those of us who are shaky shooters. I see the 7R being the hero with that huge sensor advantage in a small package. Neither are going to make it as a sports shooter camera. I'm sure they will hit their target audience just fine.

Once I saw the pro-Sony guys admitting right away the A7 won't focus as fast as M43 cameras, I knew it would not be good camera for some. After seeing the 200mm lens, another group is going stop considering it.

btw, I use the EM1 to shoot sports and it does very well.
