Should I embrace this camera, or loathe it? Cheers.

Embrace it. It's a great tool depending on your job. What are you using it for?
Could the Sony A7 be characterized as an run and gun camera? Or would you have some ideas on a camera for shooting a documentary?
I never trust DSLR's as many are prone to overheating and random shutdowns. May not be a problem on a narrative where the takes are short but on a documentary or interview, DSLR's can be a headache.
A camera for a series.
Seems to be excellent in 1080 mode. But stutters in 4K. Not a problem.
It's a good still camera and an amateur video camera capable of good images in the right hands under some conditions. It's not a tool anyone would use as an A-camera on anything serious, particularly with camera movement or action in shot. For controlled interviews aimed at the web and night doc work it can be brilliant.
