And judging by the responses here, I see there are alot of hobby photographers here who doesnt quite understand how professional photography works. Its good with adapters and and the option of using legacy lenses.

But that stuff is completely out of the question for many professionals. Taking black and white pictures of cathedrals with your Leica lenses in your hollidays is one thing. But for people working with their cameras you need full cooperation between your lens and camera, complete autofocus, exif data and all.

No, we perfectly get that some professionals need a complete system in which to shoot. But we also know that systems aren't born complete. They take years or even decades to reach a status of being 'complete'. We are early adopters, which means we are willing to take the risks with a new system, and the output and features we get are what makes us find the journey worthwhile. If you need a 70-200 for your professional work and the system doesn't have one, you look for another system. No big deal. Not whine about it like a petulant child on a forum knowing that a system is less than half a year old (Fuji didn't have anything above portrait length for the first 2 years of their system). If you don't have an A7, then why do you care? Go pick something that suits your requirements and be done with it. The rest of us understand the limitations of the system perfectly well and are willing to trust Sony to eventually get there. But if people only ever enter into a system when it is complete, then no new system will ever get to that point because financially no company can introduce a system fully mature even in a couple of years. They have to grow into it, and they need early adopters to buy into it so that it's not built on costs with no revenue while they try to get there.
