Few more, straight out of the Sony a7 camera, with the 28-70 kit lens ... (these images are nothing worth talking about, but it might give you some idea of what to expect from this camera to any of you who are interested ... the weather here sucks right now with a small dust storm, so only few lame indoor pics from stuff in my office ... I'm hoping to put the Sony a7 to good use during my vacation next week).
I would not recommend this camera (especially with the kit lens), unless you have a specific limited need like I do.
I suspect things will get better for you as become more familiar with the camera. Your comments so far have reminded me a bit of when the D600 was coming out and it looked so much better on paper than the 6D, but the actual camera was a bit of a letdown.
I hope for your sake and the others posters here that are investing in this camera that it isn't a "paper tiger".
The D600 is far from being a letdown. In fact, with the D610 being released, buying a D600 could be a damn good bargain.
No one thinks that the a7's are going to kill DSLR. However, as I've recently read in a review, the a7's Mk II could. It's impossible not to see the potential, when you consider that they are a world first vs a decades-old, mature, established tech. Possibly surpassed tech? Time will tell.
They have class leading sensors, good tech inside, excellent (though momentarily few and a tad pricey) Zeiss branded AF lenses, and they can take pretty much any lens ever made. And they're small like a MFT camera - something that people like me, who take lots of planes, will be thankful for.
I don't have anything against your post in particular, but I've seen lots of nitpicking going around. Recent reports also mentioned that when you turn wifi and NFC off the battery life can get to 600+ shots.
