Sony Supremacy

A7r versus D800e

"Just in case you missed that, the Sony A7R with 35mm f/2.8 lens shot at f/2.8 outresolved the Nikon D800e with either the Nikon 35mm f/1.4G shot at f/4 or the Zeiss 50mm f/2 shot at f/5.6. Stopped down to f/4 to even the playing field, the Sony was clearly higher. In fact, the only lens-camera combinations we’ve seen with that kind of MTF50 is the Zeiss Otus 55mm mounted to a D800e."

That would be exciting, if the combo weren't so expensive.

Well that is simple. We should all buy the D800e mounted to the Otus 55.

Does credit for that sharpness go to Zeiss/Sony lens or Sony's sensor? Me thinks it's the lens.

Methinks that neither sensor nor lens can make the other better than it is.
