In the A7s release they said mount is stainless steel

In fact SAR  made a big deal of that relative to the A7 and A7r.  So what is the A7 and A7r mount made of ?  Aluminium or Magnesium alloy?  I assume they're the same but the A7r has a metal front plate and the A7 is a polycarbonate front plate.  The Sony guy said people will want to put heavier lenses on the A7s so it is stainless steel.  What if I want to hang something heavy on a A7?  Should I avoid that?  I can see my Tamron 200-500 on an A7 some day.  Unless too heavy of course.

Cheers.
