Judging from the series of emoticons I guess you are joking  ;D

Otherwise I would like to read from you that you sold your f/2.8 L II zooms to fund the mentioned equipment  ;D  ;D  ;D

I'm not.

List of gear I might put on CL to build FF compact system:
1. one of my 5D III
2. 50L

I might end up with just 1 5D III + 70-200, 85L II and/or 135L etc...not sure yet. However, I do know exactly what I NEED & WANT. A compact FF, mirrorless system that I can change lenses. Keep in my, I'm the owner of RX1.

I know compact FF mirrorless is not for everyone, however, it's for me. I'm not sure when Mr. Canon will be on board with this type of camera system. To me, they too busy making "IS" primes for video shooter.

It's just that you are such a 24-70 f/2.8 L II fan that made me hard to believe that you are going to sell it. 50L I can understand though...

Not just 24-70 II, I love all my L babies.

Dylan,

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.

thanks

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.

Maybe...   ;)

I am interested to see how the phase AF of the A7 performs (the A7R supposedly won't have it).

New here, been lurking.
So I guess I just dont get the full frame mirrorless excitment!
My thought is small mirrorless body, APS-C sensor, small light weight lenses, decent lens speed.
Full Frame sensor means fast lenses are BIG lenses! Not really conducive for light weight travel kits.
Enjoying my full frame 6D and multiple L lenses, but they are heavy!

I think I've become a full frame sensor snob, because I just can't get excited about the crop sensor image quality, and it would be nice to have a lightweight FF set-up when I don't want to kill my back carrying one of my full size DSLRs.

http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-hot-first-full-size-images-of-the-a7-and-a7r-cameras-with-lenses/

Sony FF-mirrorless - almost here, finally! Compact and halfway affordable.
Ugly as hell on the outside.
Inside rather interesting - 24 MP PDAF-sensor with AA-filter and 36 MP Sensor without AA-filter. Next gen from Nikon D600 and D800. Only thing really missing is 5-axis in-body image-stabilizer. And tilt-only display rather than fully articulated LCD is a PITA. But let's see, what they will offer in terms of handling and IQ.

If good, it will hopefully hit and hurt Canon and Nikon in a really bad way.

When Sony announces the new A7(r) this week, they are also supposed to be announcing the mapping of future lenses for the new system.

Also, the sensors for these cameras are brand new, so I'll be anxious to see how they compare to the Nikon sensors, which Sony manufactured.

My thought is, I have one full frame body, and multiple wonderfull L lenses whose mass equal 2 or 3 time that of my fullframe body.
I'd love to carry them all, but oh my aching back!
For a travel kit I'd like lighter lesses of equal quality to my L glass, as well as the lighter body.
Also smaller lenses typically cost less, less glass, less metal, hence less mass.

The problem with Sony has been poor customer support to a extreme.  A 2-3 month turnaround for repairs is not something I'd ever buy into.  Then, they have also dropped support entirely for items that didn't sell well, even entire product lines.  This hasn't happened yet with mirrorless cameras, but I don't recall seeing any new ff lenses since they dropped ff DSLR bodies.  Owners are possibly never going to see upgrades.  I guess buying a throw away P&S camera is fine, but spending large amounts on a system that they will drop at the tip of the hat does not appeal to me.
