Which A7/r do you own?

There are thousands of lenses for both the A7 and the A7r, and those of us who actually own the cameras have had NO lens-imposed limits to their use. I shot all weekend with lenses from 17mm to 90mm under a wide range of conditions, and I never missed any opportunity for lack of a lens.

Oh, you say those thousands of available lenses are legacy MFs - you were talking about AF/AE/OSS lenses? Ones you can point at a scene and press the shutter and the lens and camera do all the thinking for you?

Do you really think that AF does all the thinking for you and that photos made with AF are inferior? Seems like a ridiculous statement to make.  Framing and content are the most important aspects of photography.  Focus is only a technical concern.
