Third, while I like the prime approach to keep high quality and relatively small size (FE 35mmf2.8 and 55f1.8 are vg to excellent on A7r), I see this camera as best suited for me for landscape use. I do a lot of panoramas and I prefer a highly linear 24mm lens with minimum vignetting for this (in portrait orientation).

The Nikon & Sony 70-200 F4 are similar in size/weight.  The Nikon 16-35 F4 is 1.5 lbs, 3.2 x 4.9 inches. We can expect the same for the Sony version.

For comparison, the Sony FE 24-70 is 15 oz, 2.9 x 3.7 inches.

Here is a mockup of my Nikon 16-35 mounted on an A7 (no adapter):
