I realy like the look of the Leicas and my old black Nikkormat.
Will Sonys A7 look the same one day?
Do you have a picture of an rocked A7?

Most A7 series cameras have magnesium alloy panels, so you'll get silvering not brassing (much more strength for weight)

I think the original A7 may have some polycarbonate panels, which won't brass or silver...

The only plastic on the outside of the original A7 are the dials on top, and the port cover(s).

Yeah, it's a MG alloy body, so it gives you that kinda gross looking dull silver underneath the paint.

And the polycarbonate body. Only the top plate is metal. The a7r had the mag alloy body.

No brassing with the whole contemporary A7 series,I'm afraid rsrsrs.The only thing I observed after nearly 4 years on my oldest A7,was the silver "alumining" on the edges of the top plate.Newer A7R and A7M2 remain free of that,

Brass is about 5x the weight of mag.

Brass paint?

Between the four A7 cameras I've had, none really showed much wear with pretty care-free use.

Well I wouldn't exactly refer to my copy as "beat up", but I use an older metal link camera strap which has rubbed the paint away by the strap locks. I prefer the older secure straps but ones that can be removed easily for tripod use, and don't plan on reselling the camera so the chipping was an acceptable compromise. That said, here are some samples!
