I thought I might also comment on one part of the wifi implementation. In the menu WIFI has its own tab, with two sub-menus. At some point I might figure these out. However, the useful part for me comes under a tab with four squares on it (not sure what this means) and lies under the heading "Application List". This is the part for enabling remote triggering from a smartphone. There are three icons here, for PlayMemories Apps, Application Management and Smart Remote Embedded, and it is the latter which interested me. I was able to connect up to my Android without a problem; it's easy enough if you've been through the Canon 6D learning curve - easier actually - but I won't go into detail here. However, the implementation itself is considerably inferior to that of EOS Remote, which I use with the 6D. Yes, you can see the LiveView image and can trigger the shutter. You can also adjust exposure compensation. I was using a MF lens so I can't tell whether you can remotely focus AF lenses. However, that's it. Unlike EOS Remote, there is no facility to change ISO, shutter speed or aperture (the last is greyed out on EOS Remote when using MF lenses without electronic connections for changing aperture), nor can you magnify the image as on the Canon software. Furthermore Focus Magnification is disabled on the a7 when linked to a smartphone. This is a disappointment because it takes away the whole point for me of using a smartphone to control the camera. Maybe new apps will enable these things but right now it's a non-starter for use in low tripod height landscape shots, unlike the EOS Remote which transforms the use of the 6D in such circumstances.
