Sony A7r II

Sony's game changing A7 R II, 42mp Back Side Illumination (BSI) 4K video up to ISO 102400 with IBIS 5 axis sensor stabilization.

Very important, if your considering using Canon Wide Angle with an adapter, read this article first:
Article on using the Metabonse adapter here Canon wide angle lenses are having issues with edge softness when using an adapter. 

It offers full EF lens support for Canon users with Metabonse adapter, including AF  and continuous tracking and aperture control. Supposedly it has a fast phase detection AF system, but I will wait to hear what the early testers have to say.

Fotodiox adapter is better ? here

From Dpreview :
  "This is potentially a huge deal – especially for Canon users. We’ve used an a7R II with a Canon 24-70mm lens and a Metabones adapter, and focus is very fast indeed. We’ll be looking at this in more depth as soon as we have a production sample camera, but for now, we’re highly impressed"

If this works as well as I am hearing with EF lenses, I may try this camera out, I don't like the Sony interface and I don't like Sony's support or trust that they will stay the course, but the Sony sensors are very clean and I may have to get on board with this one, I will keep my 5D Mk III, because the A7 is still no DSLR and some times I need that kind of speed
