No worries, shoot with 2 systems: Canon DSLRs, Sony NEX (pics)

I agree with Thom that the FE lenses seem to be lacking in the Alpha 7/7r and that's why I'm holding to my Canon DSLR and fast lenses. Also, I don't expect Sony to create a mini version of my Canon 85 or 50/1.2 Ls. Maybe I have to wait 10 years for that. I don't like to use adaptors thus I prefer to shoot with native lenses and for me the camera/lens is better balanced if I am shooting the Canon 85 or 70-200/2.8 with my Canon DSLR than the A7r with it. So if I wanted to throw off the background really well like these shots, I would stick to my Canon DSLR:

On the other hand, there's not much difference to my eyes with shooting a heavier Canon 5DMKII and a 24-105?4 L IS and my NEX-6 + Zeiss 16-70/4, the former having an edge in throwing off the background but both are equally sharp.

5DMKII + 24-105/4 L IA

Next six are from the NEX-6 + Zeiss 16-70/4 combo

I'm very pleased that Sony has addressed this problem (subject coming at me) with the NEX-6 hopefully with the upcoming A6000!
