Here in Italy a7 first edition price is the same of a good used copy of zeiss 24/1.8 I can trade in.
Selling my a6000 I can buy a 35/2.8 fe lens (if not the Zeiss at least the samyang).
I'm worried by a7 af performances as I often used to shoot kids in af-c mode.
Moreover both the fact children are growing and I use a sigma 60/2.8 for portraits are pushing me to use af -s more.
Moreover, my Minolta 35-70/4 and 100-200/4 would make more sense.
Any thought?

Id probably keep the apsc. Better overall performance imo

Changing to FF might make sense if you have older glass, especially wide angle lenses, that will keep their original focal lengths - if you need those. For me getting the original A7 as a first step into FE-mount was all about the use of vintage glass WA lenses.

It doesn't sound like going full frame makes much sense IMHO. Though, looking at the DXO-mark results, the A7 sensor is slightly better.

I think replacing the A6000 with 24/1.8 for the A7 with 35/2.8 you get similar results. But you still need a replacement for your Sigma 60mm - the Sony 85/1.8 is great, but will cost you real money.

If you like your A6000, I agree with Chris, stay with APS-C.
