Looks like we have a Nikon D800E in a Pint Pot:

Great news for all Photographers. In the UK, the Canon EOS 5D Mk.III will cost you an additional £630 over the Recommended Price for the Sony Alpha 7R AT LAUNCH. Where are you Canon? Wake up please!

"the A7 also supports EF lenses with full electronic functions as long as you connect them via a Metabones smart adapter (version III)."

Excellent point Philippe. I probably will start with just the Alpha A7R and my EF lenses. No one has been able to advise me whether the Leica M lenses will work properly via an Adapter. I do not want to go down that route if the result is excessive Vignetting and Colour Castes. Steve

Not only are there already very promising pictures from the A7R with its native FE 35mm f:2.8 (by Brian Smith, inter alia), but the A7 also supports EF lenses with full electronic functions as long as you connect them via a Metabones smart adapter (version III). That makes the A7 a very strong contender for second camera for those who already own quite a few EF lenses.

Yes. But thank God we have so many other lenses we can use with adapters.

I believe it would be great performer when it is available. I hope it wouldn't be delayed in Europe as in America :(
I believe also it is better than D800E - not because it is smaller - but because it could take almost every DLSR lens and many of Rangefinder lenses. One sad is pure Biogons ZM performance with A7R sensor. I still haven't lost my faith in my Hologon's C/G ability to comfort Sony microlenses :)
