Re: Why is the A7 selling cheaper than the A99 ?

I am referring to using the native E mount lenses only. Here are the scores by DXOMark: I think the A7 and A7r are ahead in every "core" area, especially the low light score:

I am not sure what qualifies as a "professional camera" - I am not a professional, but I see a professional camera is one that can provide best value (cleanest image) to a client, help the photographer to shoot in challenging lighting conditions and by creating image quality which requires less editing so the photographer can get more work done, provide weather sealing etc...which is mostly there in the A7 and the E mount line. (Existing) Lens selection is definitely a factor and I completely agree with the advantage that A99 has (I mentioned it in my thread).
