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.

I am coming from GH2/GH3, so if GX7 is worse than E-M then shame on Panasonic...

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

I disagree with this to a point.

I can compare GH2, GH3, E-M1 w/ A7... I do not shoot movies though

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.

I am talking about TTL flashes (and a need to use an adapter for old TTL Sony/Minolta flashes w./ new Sony bodies)... to insert a dumb manual flash is not an issue (finally).
