Small Rant: all A7/r reviews are from Pro perspective, not casual NEX user


All reviews I have come across are from photographers who are Pro, shoot Full Frame and typically use D800 or MkIII. Also some Leica shooters, but that crowd for now shy away from engaging in direct comparison a bit But overall, all questions for these people have been answered 10x by now with 1000 samples.

My first APSC camera was NEX 5N. I own about 10 lenses, mix of AF e-mount, Alpha+LAEA2 and various adapted manual. I would describe myself as prosumer, very engaged but past-time shooter only.

I think there are a lot of you out there with my perspective. Where are our reviews?

Surely they will come, but here are a few questions i am waiting to be answered:

> APS-C vs Full Frame Feel?
 NEX7+E2418 vs A7+FE3528. Havent found any direct comparison yet.

> Phase Detect AF with standard E mounts?
 There are some youtube tests on A7 which seem slow. Do we know these lenses are actually supported on A7 as they are on NEX?

> Sample RAWs of cropped shots
yes, my favorite NEX glass is limited to 15/10MPs how bad is it? cropped vs NEX RAWs comparison would be nice. A7/r is "E-mount", but does it even make sense to support the old e mounts, or is it just to utilize the adaptation flexibilty from NEX system?

Thanks for sharing some experiences / opinions! Afterall, I m trying to decide how / if to upgrade.
