A7 battery life is miserable vs E-M1

GX7 battery life is also not that great.....still I only have one for the GX7 vs two for the A7.

m43 CDAF (any latest Olympus of Panasonic camera) runs circles around A7 w/ PDAF on sensor

I disagree with this to a point.

In low light at least and against the GX7 (not E-M1), the AF of the A7 seems to me to be faster than the GX7....especially for movies.

The GX7 will AF at EV -4 ...a lot lower than the A7 but before the A7 stops, it is a lot faster.

And of course they both meter to around the same EV.

At EV -4, I would prefer to use the A7 and manual focus anyway.

stupid situation with flashes shoe mounts in Sony system

Does that apply to the A7??   My cheap no name Chinese Ebay flash works ok on the A7....and GX7.
