D800 owner looking at the Sony A7/A7r......

Now I love my D800 but lugging it around the world on my travels has become increasingly more and more difficult as I get older. I climbed Machu Picchu in Peru back in 2012 with a backpack full of D800 gear and swore I wouldn't do it again.

And now I'm heading to Korean and Vietnam and really want the benefits of that 36mp but sure would like to have it in a smaller package.

Has anyone else considered the Sony A7r or A7 as an alternate to their D800?  I understand that the lens selection has a ways to go but it looks like Sony will be bringing out more lenses over time and I'm fine with that.
