Re: choosing between X-T1 and Sony A7

Just two thoughts from me... Firstly, sharpness comes from the lens not the camera, and Fuji have a few which are exceedingly sharp. If the 35mm is a fave lens then the Fuji 35 is not only great but also affordable !

My second thought is that if you are after a small lighter system then the Sony makes no sense.   OK !  the camera may be smaller but the lenses are just the same. My Sigma 50-150 F2.8 which is DX seems heavier on its own than the E1 with 4 lenses and EF42 flash. You can carry a pretty large kit with Fuji with not a lot of weight and in a far smaller bag. You also tend to notice weight less when in a smaller bag
