    What's the point of spending $$$ on a full frame camera and then using it in crop (APS-C) mode with these lenses??? :confused:

    Hmm....

    But you still can afford to buy a full frame A7 body :confused:


    Just out of curiosity, why do you feel the need to replace your 6 with an A7? What do you feel the 6 is lacking of or what do you feel the A7 on crop mode will offer you more than the 6 ?
    (was also thinking of going full frame too recently, that's why I'm asking...)

    If you are looking for cheap, only the kit 28-70 is your only option. I have no experience with the A7 or any of the FE lenses but if you are thinking about going Full frame, you need to be able to afford full frame glass as well. I don't see any point in using APS-C lenses in crop mode. You can just keep your APS-C sized camera and enjoy the more compact size. If you can put it off and save your money, you could probably get a cheap A7 kit used when the next generation of cameras is announced.
