I think the Sony A7s would be the wildlife and bird photographer's dream camera. When the birds and animals are active it's usually about 6:00 am and relatively dark, especially in the rainforest were I often shoot. With the high ISO capabilities and the small apertures of long telephoto lenses this might be a great choice. One only has to decide if one wants to live with the relatively low pixel count. I think it would be worthwhile, even if adapters are in order for the "big guns".

I would wait for samples - I would not be surprised if the high ISO results from A7, A7r and A7s are pretty close when comparing images scaled to the same size. Why? They all have sensors with identical light-gathering surface.

No problem using the A7 up to ISO 100 000 or so, but such low exposures takes a bit extra post processing since there is no optimized raw files for such high ISO values.
