I'd keep the A7, decide which native glass works best, get that lens (or lenses), and move on. Simple.
Bingo Mike.

I had a chance yesterday to play with the A7 and the Sony/Zeiss 55mm (again) and the 35mm f2.8 (again). I also tried the 70-200 f4. While the 70-200 looked "odd" because of the size of the A7 body.. the lens is cracking sharp and would be awesome to use for weddings/events. I tested the 55 and 35 with continuous AF while walking towards a subject (in order to mimic movement of a subject towards me if I was stationary) and the camera/lens worked a LOT better than I had even anticipated or expected.

I have decided to hang onto the A7 and proceed accordingly. It will be fine to build on this mirrorless kit - and it will make a great back up or prime camera (when AF may be a necessity) to go along with the M240.

Cheers,
Dave
