I'm also excited about the new Sony A7 & A7R as well...I've been following the updates over at sonyalpharumors. I will purchase this camera, probably the A7! Hopefully the camera has a good autofocus system.
This new FF camera system will be a great light weight set-up for travel. Hopefully Sony comes out with a strong lens line-up. I'm hoping Sony comes out with a strong UWA lens, because it would be nice lighter weight set-up to carry in my bag, along side my Canon 5dMIII w/70-200mm f/2.8 L.
We might be the only two here
I'm glad Sony starts with 55mm prime. I'm not sure why just f1.8? why not f1.2 or f1.4.
That was my first thought.
If you're going to have launch lenses, it should be an f1.4 35mm, 50mm and 85mm.
I'm guessing those versions will be coming and they just wanted to get the mediocre "kit" versions out the door as soon as possible. At least the 70-200f4 should be good, given that those are usually the highest IQ zoom lenses made by any given company.
