I think you will find the a7 focusing behavior quite similar to the NEX-6 Hybrid AF. If you have to have the absolute fastest most accurate focusing system, I do not think either of these cameras are it IMO.

Otherwise, you'll find AF quite good in most lighting situations. In low lighting, you may find that using MF with your desired Peaking Level (Low, Mid, High) & Peaking Color (White, Red, Yellow) performs very well (albeit slower).

Keep in mind that if the A7r is better at autofocusing in low light, the peaking sparkles will also be more accurate with the A7r than the A7 meaning that manual focus people who use peaking should get better results with the A7r.
