I get not wanting to attach a Canon zoom, but it's perhaps worth pointing out that you retain a small form factor if you attach one of the smaller Canon primes (I've used the 40mm pancake and 85mm 1.8).  Of course, focusing may not be fast enough....
I agree! ... I have been using it with 40mm, 50mm & 85mm ... I find focusing with 'foucs peaking' to be a lot more accurate and faster. Sometime in the near future, I do plan on adding the EF 24 IS, 28 f/1.8 and 35mm IS lenses.

Thanks for the tip. The only lens available as a kit lens in India is the 28-70  :(. The zeiss 55mm f/1.8 is almost 2/3rd of the Canon 50L price :o while the other lenses are coming soon >:(

You may want to check out Amazon Japan (see the link below) ... they've got some awesome low prices (due to the weak Japanese Yen) ... I got my FE 24-70 f/4 from Amazon Japan ... you'd obviously have to work out your shipping and customs charges ... I didn't have to pay any shipping or customs charges, as my ex-boss brought it with him from Japan. Anyway, here is the weblink:

I just saw this video, over at Sonyalpharumors and I'm hooked ... I'll be ordering the a6000 soon along with the 10-18mm f/4 OSS lens ... my Canon G1 X is going on sale soon to make way for the a6000+10-18 lens

Sony released this interesting bluetooth mic ... I think it also works with the a7/a7R
According to http://store.sony.com/microphone-transmitter--zid27-ECMW1M/cat-27-catid-All-Camcorders-Accessories;pgid=YaVekzJizz1SRpzpWbJT83BP00000kmVtP9f?_t=pfm%3Dsearch%26SearchTerm%3DECM-W1M
... this is what it can do:
"Special moments right at the source with this Bluetooth® wireless microphone. Not only can you record crisp, clear sound up to 300 feet away, but you can also enjoy two way communications between you and your subject. This unique feature enables you to give your subject direction while capturing only their voice, or you can chose to capture both their voice and yours while filming".

I so wish this sensor was inside my 5D III.

I think its a good thing that this Sony sensor is not in the 5D MK III ... the Nikon/Sony cameras (with 24 or 36MP
Sony sensors) that I own(ed) and/or tried, do not have the same versatility, speed and accuracy of AF like the 5D MKIII ... from my limited experience I feel Sony sensors are "specialty" sensors, that are good for great image quality & DR but they are not good "all rounders".

Woke up this morning with this sunrise, so I took a shot with Sony A7R with FE55 and 5D III and 24-70 f/2.8 II both at around 55 mm and at f/3.2  The 24-70 is a bit disadvantaged as it's barely stopped down, and the auto white balance of both cameras yielded very different WB, so I did my best to match WB.

For the curious, this is how 5D III WB looked before matching.  Recalling what my own eyes saw, I would say the sky looked like somewhere between Sony and Canon but more towards Canon.

Nice images ... they look very similar, except the Sony looks a a tiny bit more saturated/underexposed maybe ... but probably that has something to do with capturing (or not capturing) the small water body below? ... actually, not sure I can't really tell the difference, but I like the images.

Just got my a7R,  very pleased with the convenient controls, very fast AF - expected that it would slower
Did some tests with ZEISS 55 1.8  and  below are some samples - one full image- small size, the other 100% crop  with 100% Jpeg quality, all handheld
Very good addition as walk around camera  to 1Dx

Couple of more samples.
All shots are processed in Phase One Capture One with default setting, only shot with flowers has highlights slider set to 5 % to show more texture on white flowers
I tried a7R with Lightroom 5.3, DXOOptics Pro 9.1 and Capture One and the last gives more pleasant results for a7R files compared to DXO and Light room.
DXO also very good - with default settings output looks better then LR5.3
May be this is personal perception  but to my eye C1 do much better rendering for a7R raw files than LR5.3
Now waiting Metabone adapter to  test  it with Canon TSE 17 glass
