Besides the 36MP and FF, I do not really see how the a7r is any better than the current a77,

LOL. The IQ of the A7 is far better than the A77 and beats the A99 as well in most areas. The A7r is even better. You can see for your own here:

There are other areas (like AF, burst speed etc) where each camera is unique in their own way. But the A77 lags far behind the IQ produced by the A7/r. There is also a FW update coming for the A7/r in which Sony is adding Fast hybrid AF for the A7 (I think this is what the A6000 uses but I am no expert). We will wait and see whether Sony delivers.
