Canna decide Sony a7 of Fuji X-T1 - any one had both?

Talk Equipment - www.talkphotography.co.uk
So I sold my a6000 as I was struggling with the lack of on body controls.

I have got used to my LX100 and like being able to change the aperture and shutter speed easily. ISO access is a single menu button away, so no real hardship. I found on the a6000, having to use the D-Pad I was often entering into a menu I did not want and did not find adjusting settings the most fluent.

The other thing I like about the LX100 is being able to have the histogram on screen whilst adjusting exposure manually and also the vertical and horizontal level. The video is a bonus but not what I use it for, so does not come into the equation.

I have played with an a7 body and it has more direct access than the a6000 and seems fine but have also been considering the X-T1. The store did not have an X-T1, so I had a play with the X-T10, the menus seemed a little harder to figure and did not overly gel with it but the X-T1 is meant to have on body access to all controls.

I keep going Sony (for Full Frame) then Fuji for on body controls and (when just snapping) JPEG SOOC.

So any advise welcome.

Which has best view finder for manual use (lens, focus and exposure)?

Which has the best Dynamic Range?

Which is best handled by LR5 for RAW (I found a6000 needed a lot of PP work from RAW, lens distortion, noise ect).

Which has best JPEG SOOC (for lazy days)

I can get

new a7, with 28-70mm lens, for £750 after cash back with 2 years warranty

or

Fuji X-T1 refurbished, with a 18-135mm lens, for £850 1 year warranty

So nothing in it really.

I have been waiting for used to come up and thought which ever came first (with lens) and priced right I would go for, leaving me a bit more for another lens.

Ramble over, any body had both and which one did you keep and why?
