Canon EF 70-200mm/f4 autofocus image-stabilized lenses for A7

Have you considered the f4 version of the Canon 70-200? I think it's cheaper and lighter than the upcoming Sony FE (maybe with adapter there's no difference).

Very good point! Canon EF 70-200mm 1:4L IS USM has 67mm filter thread, is only 172 mm long and weight 760 g.

As far as I learned from the reviews here, today the Metabones adapter gives very poor AF, but it supports image stabilization. Therefore with the Canon EF lenses via the Metabones adapter I'll have image stabilized manual focus lens.

I already own the Canon FD 80-200mm/f4L lens and I am just in the beginning of my learning process:
