I don't really think of the A7 as a "professional grade" camera at all. It's a decent camera with an excellent sensor and viewfinder, which is why I bought it. It does not have the responsiveness, speed, ergonomics, or build quality to compete with "professional grade" cameras as I think of them, although it can produce photographs of comparable quality. Just because the A7/A7r are costly does not make them "professional grade" ... they're costly because FF sensors and high-end EVFs cost a good bit.

It's irrelevant to me whether Sony ever produces a lens for these bodies; I'll never buy one of them. I bought the camera to use my Leica R and Nikkor SLR lenses on, and it works beautifully for that. I have all the lenses I'll ever need already.
