A7r:
– Lightest FF camera with interchangeable lens ever
– 36.4 MP
– gapless lens design on sensor (no AA filter)

(SR5) More lens price info (and A7r costs $100 more than Samys leak).

$1998 is what you pay for that kit (or 1999 Euro)

Got some more pricing info in Euro and Dollars:

Cameras:
– The leaked Samy price for the A7r could be wrong. Instead of $2198 the price should be $2298. In Europe the price is likely 2400 Euro.
– The A7 body only costs $1698 as leaked on Samys.
– $1998 (or 1999 Euro) is what you pay for the A7 kit version with the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens.
– The RX10 costs $1298

Lenses:
– The Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 prime lens will cost 800 Euro and in US $800
– The Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 prime lens will cost 1100 Euro and in US $1000
– The Sony 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom will cost around 500 Euro (not sure yet about price in USA)
– The Zeiss 24-70mm f/4.0 zoom will cost around $1200 (not sure yet about price in Europe)

Reminder: Sony will stream live the A7-A7r and RX10 announcement at 7am London time. Be sure to be online on SonyAlphaRumors by that time to see the presentation, first reviews, preorders and so on!
