Just bit the bullet and bought it,

Digital Camera Warehouse had it with the Metabones adapter and the battery grip included. Thanks for your help and opinions!

DCW? That's where I got mine from :lol:

I found the EM5 sensor to be a bit sub par for my liking when cropping a high ISO image a bit. I hardly use my wife's anymore. Not that I've used my D700 much either since getting the A7r.

Enjoy and share in or both of the A7 threads.

Yeah the battery grip and metabones for a free add on looked the goods to me! Plus buying Australian stock is always a nice peace of mind.

I found the exact same thing about mine, will probably hand mine over to my sister :lol:

The mirrorless generation... while I love bringing the little XPro-1 everywhere I go ...for now there's no substitute for the IQ AND AF accuracy of say a Pro-body DSLR. Particularly when you need to nail shots ie. getting paid for the pleasure (shooting portraits in difficult light like a strong backlight scene as one example). Phil the 1Dx must be a machine AF-wise.

I'd argue the A7 bridges the gap of IQ, but doesn't get close on AF.

Agreed... which is why I said IQ AND AF :D

PS. The Fuji Xtrans sensor is right up there also... while not quite the equal of the A7r/D800E I think the colour and tone add another dimension such that as long as focus and exposure is nailed I don't care which of my cameras I took the shot with.

For travel for sure. For professional work I don't know - I still love the heft of my pro-bodies and lenses... hard to explain but when what I shoot with it makes me shoot like I mean business. When it's light and fluffy its more like la-de-daa haha.

I agree. My D700 with or without grip is still more enjoyable when shooting motorsports or birds for me, or basically anything where I want AF but for fun and walkaround duties (which tends to be static subjects anyway) the Sony so far has been more than capable.
