And here lies the problem with full frame mirrorless cameras, The zoom lenses are huge, expensive and not even that fast! I am sure it will get better over time.

I’m not really sure why you’d want a zoom on a camera like the A7/R. A couple of fast(ish) primes is far more in the spirit of these things. I have the 35mm 2.8, I dare say I’ll succumb the 55 1.8 at some point, and that’ll probably do me. I’ve got a couple of Nikon DSLRs for general snapping.

I see it differently (responding to the “I’ve got a couple of Nikon DSLRs for general snapping.” of Alex):

I have a D800 and good lenses. I’m content with this but it’s a bit heavy and bulky at times.

For “general snapping” I might be interested in an A7R… but then it would be very nice to have a really good but still compact zoom lens; maybe ultra-wide plus a standard zoom.
