Thanks a lot for your advice guys.
Maybe I shouldn't ask everything from one body, but Nikon, even Canon seems don't put too much on video.
I think lens last much longer than bodies. So I may reasonably go for a system that require less conversion to the lens. Yet, I will wait and see what the new FM2 would be.
For 80-200, have you used that to shot kids? I may mainly use it for architectural and landscape, together with 21-35.
I think I need something like 35-70/2.8 for video recording, but the R version is too expensive. For a while I was thinking to get a Panasonic 12-35/2.8 to use with my GF1, and don't do too much video with the R lenses. But that is not idea as well, 12-35/2.8 is equivalent to 24-70/5.6 in terms of DOF, and GF1 only support 720p video.
Look at my photos, the best are still taken with R lens.

MF are good for videos, on the one hand it gives full control. On the other hand, without a large monitor, it's quite hard when w/o.
Have you ever taken any video with your R lens?
My budget is around AU$2500.
And I think I can wait for another month or two. By then, hopefully detailed review and sample photos will be around for a7*.
Thanks for letting me know. That's part of the reason I went for 6D initially.
Impressive for the photo in your link. a7r +1
Thanks. I will keep a close eye on a7r. Sony has made special treatment to the area close to the edge of the sensor, right?
Nice work! Have you ever use 80-200 hand held?
Thanks for sharing your experience. I used to shot with a R6, and really enjoyed its bright optical viewfinder. When I start to use GF1 I can never focus easily or just in time.
Impressed by some sample image of a7r, I think my next research should be: whether it provide any focusing assistant that is reliable, and when recording video. When the kid runs away, I need to refocus without breaking the recording, and it's really hard to be done on a 3 inch screen without reliable continuous assistance.
