I've got an awesome plan for you: Shoot your own wedding and charge yourself $5000 for your services. Then use all the money you earned from the wedding to buy a brand new TS-E 17 and TS-E 24 II. Then give them to yourself as a really nice wedding present. :D

Is there a way to open the aperture up for better quality live view until the shutter exposes. Because when you're using long exposures in sunset conditions with f16 etc... the live view can look pretty damn awful.
What I need is the opposite to DOF preview, an open the aperture button.

Thanks! Honestly it is night and day difference for me. I did love my X-E2 but the A7 for me has a better dynamic range and has a lot more detail through out the image. I love the look full frame provides and have missed that since selling my 5D2. I would not go back to my x-e2 after shooting with the a7!

What is the autofocus like with the 55 on the a7 in comparison to the X-E2? Also how is the over all speed of the A7 as for as writing images to the card and stuff? I upgraded to a X-T1 because I'm already invested in the Fuji system and the speed improvement's over my X-E1 are really nice but I'm just not totally happy with the Fuji IQ.

Dankin, I know you didn't ask me this but I'll chip in. The a7r and fe 55 focuses as fast as my xt1 did so I assume also the xe2. I also wasn't happy with fuji iq

Thanks. If it's similar to the X-T1 then I would be fine with it. Now I've got to sale a lot of Fuji gear:) I'll probably look for a good deal on a used A7 for now along with the 35 and 55 and maybe the Canon 16-35 F4 IS with an adapter for wide landscapes unless the 16-35 sony has planned turns out to be really good.

Go in the menus and set the "Live View Display" to "Setting Effect OFF", I think this is what you're looking for.

That's what I'm using with a custom button for shot preview - like dof preview button on side of lens shooting Canon. Takes full advantage of the EVF over an OVF.
