There are two diff. markets, Pro and everyday shooter. The Pro will cont. with DSLR and wonderful L lenses.

Not true. Many professional photographers are using mirrorless systems.

I don't see how Pro sport shooters would buy current mirrorless over DSLR.

I do agree with you on Pro with still shooting assigments

I can feel the "heat" from this topic already ;)

My 2cents: There are two diff. markets, Pro and everyday shooter. The Pro will cont. with DSLR and wonderful L lenses. Where everyday shooters want something simple and compact, but doesn't want to give up FF IQ - this option doesn't exist until Sony shows up.

For me, I rather enjoy both worlds.
Would be true, if it wasn't for the fact that the A7R trumps the 5D3 and 1DX in FF IQ, while still being small, simple, wifi/smartphone-connectable, e.t.c.. It is without a doubt the best camera available for my dear L-lenses.. Like Kai said, the game is changing.

EDIT: Oops, I just saw that you mentioned Sony. Never mind. :)

I'm not DR guy. Be able to shoot at higher ISO is what I'm really after in FF world. The reason I purchased A7 is compact - for travel oversea and just taking picture of my kids on short trip . I'm interested to add 2-3 Zeiss FE lenses to this compact system(55mm, UWA, 85 or 135 depends on lens size).

I just don't see myself attaching 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 100-400 f4, 300mm, or 400mm on this compact body. 5D III/1D X feels so much better with big lenses - not to mention AF tracking on DSLR is something current mirrorless can't keep up.

I do agree with you on IQ/sensor stuff

Thanks Rienzphotoz.

Can't wait to fly back home to see the kids, wife and NEW TOYS ;)
I understand,  new toys are lots of fun coz they are new  ;) ... but wife and kids ... you know, same ol, same ol  ;D... I'm just kidding ... my wife will kill me if she sees this post.   :-X ... more than that I am scared she might stop her once a year gift of buying me a lens for my birthday ... last year she didn't buy a lens as we had gone on a holiday and she promised to give it next month ... so I better not make stupid comments like these else I might lose the gift  :-X ;D

LOL... ;D

The #1 reason that I got all these stupid FF camera gear is my kids. They are my #1 treasure in my life.

If I have no kids, I think would still be shooting with little Canon $99 P&S. Back in 2006, my wife and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon. Can you guess, what camera that I bought and brought with us?  :P

You know LR5.3 supports A7 + new FE lenses?
I didn't even think of it, until I saw your post ... so I just fired up LR 5.3 now to check some of the test images I had taken on Saturday when I got the Metabones adapter ... lo and behold LR 5.3 does support A7+EF lenses .. here is an image made with EF 85mm f/1.8 at f/1.8 ... the first one is straight out of the camera, the second one is the same image without any post processing other than tick mark "Profile" in "Lens Corrections" of LR 5.3 ... as you can see it does take care of vignetting.
Due to bad weather I was only able to test my lenses (with A7+metabones) at home ... so I have more such "test" images with EF 40 f/2.8, 50 f/1.4, 100 f/2.8 L IS Macro, 16-35 f/2.8 L II, 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II & Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC ... basically all of them are supported in LR 5.3
EDIT: Sorry my bad, it does not support automatically, I was too excited to check if it supports or not, so in the excitement I forgot that I was selecting Custom Lens Corrections Profile in LR5.3 ... Moral of the story: too much excitement can will lead to embarrassment :-[

What about zeiss FE lenses?  Thanks
With LR 5.3 release, all the 3 below lenses are supported:
1. Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS
2. Sony ZEISS FE 35mm F2.8 ZA
3. Sony ZEISS FE 55mm F1.8 ZA

Thanks Rienzphotoz.

Glad to see that you did not betray my trust  ;D ... also glad that you have not gone astray in your wayward quest of a great white ;D
Congratulations! ... hope to see some pics with your new ZEISS 55 f/1.8 lens ... having seen some of your work, I am sure they'll be awesome. For a short while I did think of getting the ZEISS 55, but I'm not really a prime lens type of guy as I also don't have the skill and patience required for a prime lenses, so the few prime lenses that I do have, just stay in the camera bag most of the time as back up, for my zoom lenses (with the exception of 100 IS Macro).
About the 10-18, I'm still thinking to get it or not ... but I might have a customer who wants to buy my EOS-M (with kit lens, 22mm, adapter, extra batteries and a flash), so if I sell it off, then the 10-18 is definitely coming in.

I'll post some photos Rienzphotoz.

I can't believe you selling the "BEST" mirrorless camera for a Sony >:(... ::)... ;D
I sold my lovely Fuji x100s, lost about $175. I hope I don't have "seller's remorse" for that.

I bought Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II. For $11,000, it came with this strap: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/760856-REG/Canon_4771B001_Lens_Wide_Strap_B.html

You can wear this like BR style or normal on your neck. It feels better than BR7.

When you spend 2 thousand american dollars on a mirror less camera, you have to take some photos (even if the weather outside is sh!tty) ... so here is a miniature pumpkin, (smaller than a Coke can diameter), which I've been hoarding for more than 2 months ... I have a habit of buying colorful fruits and vegetables to take photos, but most of the time I forget about them and my wife gets on my case for buying stuff that we don't eat and the stuff ends up lying around in the house  ;D ... anyway today she threatened to cut up the pumpkin for dinner as she was getting p!ssed with it just lying around in the house (I had promised her that I'll take the photo of that pumpkin and then she could use for cooking after that ... now, that was 60 days ago) ... anyway she threatened to dismember the pumpkin, so I had no choice but to take the photo, before it is killed ... sorry, this is the best I've got as I cannot go outside to take photos due the bad weather.
By the way, as unfortunate as it is, there was no happy ending for neither the pumpkin nor our dinner, when we cut the pumpkin (after I took the photo) we found it rotten  :-[

A7 series is weather sealed, so let see some raining photos ;D

The "GAS" for 300mm f2.8 IS II has went away. I'm now itching for 600mm. A7 now? or use that $$$ toward to 600mm?  ::)
In my home town (Goa) we stay indoors, coz there is so much of it during monsoons ... but here in Qatar, we come out in rains, coz it only reains once in a few years, that too for a few minutes at best ... so no chance of rain photos for the next 8 months.
Oh yes, the GAS! ... it is a strange feeling, the moment I come to Canon Rumors I get it real bad and it takes a very long time for it to go away ... only to come back when gentlemen like you influence me into buying Sony a7 ... you said you were buying it and then you go get the 300 L IS, not cool man   :P (just kidding) ... the 600 L sounds awesome.

Keep in mind, the Zeiss 55mm is not arrive at local sony store yet ;) I might not yet done with my "GAS" for 2013

I'm officially done with my 2013 G.A.S

Played with this combo !!!AGAIN!!! in HongKong. Went back to the hotel. Turn on my laptop and went to BH site. Got my American Express out. Pushed the purchase button. I'm now feel better ;D ;D ;D

I'm stand by to see what Sony/Zeiss has to offer in 2014, otherwise, the new 24-70 f4 OS looks really nice

Will sell some of bulky Canon lenses soon...except the big white 400mm ;D

This one is even better, he has several samples images made )with Sony 10-18mm f/4 lens mounted on Sony a7R) at every focal length from 10-18
http://briansmith.com/sony-a7r-10-18-e-mount-lens/

My co-worker(located in Hong Kong) bought A7r and Zeiss 35mm. He mentioned AF does hunt in lower light.

I might just stay with my original plan A7 + Zeiss 55mm + Zeiss 24-70 f4 OS(until they have something wider). I don't see much of saving if I go with 10-18mm over newly Zeiss 24-70 f4 OSS. 24mm is decent on FF. I hope they release 21mm compact prime.
