I picked up a kit from amazon for £600, I've grown up with canon film cameras and 3 canon DSLR's, but aps-c sensors. I had a Sony DSC-HX9V compact camera and really liked it (little viewfinder and 32 optical zoom, a nice pocket camera if you need one) . The A7 arrived today and it's confusing me, Canon DSLR dimentions, but Compact Camera interface! Anyway I'm sure I'll get used to it, might even have to read the manual.
