Probably a good attitude. However, some people do panoramas and it is easier to stitch when the edge quality is high. Everyone has different needs...

I judge by prints and not what I see initially straight from the camera. Plus I rarely print full frame and those are usually sports action shots where no one is bothering about corner softness. My criteria is that I will probably crop around 20% so that is where I am looking at the edge performance.

Well, then the A7R will give you more resolution when you crop--which was one of my original points. But if you are happy with cropping 20% from the A7 then you'll save money buying the A7...
