My folks showed up with my A7 kit and 55/1.8Z ... but I didn't have much chance to shoot anything but baby/grandparents pics in our tiny and slightly dully lit house. I love the camera already, didn't notice anything particularly worrying about my kit lens so far, and really love the 55/1.8Z. The first negative so far is the shutter button placement, which I already knew about. I haven't pixel-peeped anything yet but shooting casually didn't seem to cause me any problems, contrary to some reports that great care is required to get the most out of it (or maybe that only applies to the A7R). The shutter slap is louder than the 5N even with EFCS on but nothing to worry about. The AF is definitely faster than the 5N by a distance, yet not exactly speedy. Just so happy to have it here at last and the savings between US and UK prices was more than my CV 35/1.4 cost!
