He glosses over the AF tracking and only mentions continuous shooting when there's no tracking at all. I guess he shot with manual focus almost exclusively.

But I'm glad he recognizes operation is still slow, even with AF out of the equation. It's a pretty big deal.

Overall, the review is heavily legacy-glass-oriented.

Steve is positive about using legacy M lenses but the review of T Ashley and the samples of Ron Scheffer do contradict this. Even with the 50 mm Lux the files are far from stellar. 
Who is right ?? My initial conclusion is that the A7/A7r are fine camera's with their native lenses and when legacy glass works well then it is a bonus.
