Sony A6000 with Zeiss 16-70mm or A7 with 28-70mm

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a smaller and lighter alternative to my D800E + 24-70mm walk around lens, and am looking at two different Sony cameras:

Sony A6000 + Zeiss 16-70mm f4 OSS - (285g + 308g)

Sony A7 + Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 - (474g + 295g)

I understand that one is a crop sensor with a better lens, and the other one is a full frame with kit lens, but I was wondering which would be a nice combination for day walk, maybe short hike or just a camera to carry with?

I haven't had any experience with either camera, except to try them in a store for a very short time (A6000 had 16-50 attached). I liked the EVF in A6000 better and those focus points are crazy.

Many thanks in advance.
