$1000?
Noisy high ISO images compared to full-frame competitors
Raw compression issues
Heavy for a mirrorless camera
Control dials are small, and too recessed
Subject tracking in continuous AF can be unreliable
No programmable auto ISO
No quick way to magnify AF point to 100% to check focus in Image Review/Playback
There is no silent shooting mode and the shutter is quite loud, especially for a mirrorless camera
Over-sensitive eye sensor
No touchscreen

Former A7 i owner, but now A7 iii owner here. Damn this is a slick bundle! 28-70mm covers a pretty good range to take traveling, especially on a full frame camera. In my honest opinion, if someone don't know how to take pictures ( crop, framing, angles, lighting, etc...) it doesn't really matter what camera they get if don't have the creative eyes for it. Any camera, will not make you a better photographer, however it does give you better "quality" images such as better noise/iso performance, better tones, better dynamic range so you can bring out shadows, etc...
With that being said, you have to begin somewhere if you want to step into the realm of photography/film making and I think this is a great first purchase for those who want to enter the fullframe world.

Buy & start learning!

LOL...poor? Nope. Nothing really compares at this $1000. price for body/lens and full frame. Lots of users on DPR love the camera.

I am really thinking about Mirrorless. I have 80d but it is too big. Can I mount my EF-S glass on this. Would like to move to Canon R series. But it is very expensive.

A7Ii has poor reviews. Will A7iii ever be this price in a year or two. A7iii has great reviews from experts.
