Default Sony A7R DXO Review - Highest full frame IQ ever.

http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Sony-...-image-quality

DxOmark just published the full Sony A7r sensor test. And according to their measuresand ranking system the camera scores the same points as the Nikon D800-D800E (and that for $500 less). And it literally kicks the Canon5DIII in the butt.

This is what DxO writes about the A7r:

“Although we can’t provide any commentary on image sharpness at this stage in our tests, the sensor in the Sony Alpha 7R performs exceptionally and is on a par with that found in the D800 models. Given the Sony’s small size, low weight and outstanding sensor performance, it’s one of the most intriguing and compelling new additions in recent times.”

Well played by Sony! Well played!

They are lacking when it comes to lenses, but Sony clearly brings way more innovation and excitement to the table than Canon did since the 5D2.

Excellent! And the score results should come as no surprise since the D800/E models use a 36MP Sony sensor. If anything I was hoping it would slightly surpass the D800E since the A7R is a nearly two-years newer camera.

Irregardless, I think the A7R is the most exciting new camera to come out in any of my memory.

Anyway DXO mentioned that any differences could be chalked up to changes in processing or even just error in the measuring equipment, it's safe to say it's very similar if not the same. The "worse" low light performance is about 1/10th of a stop worth.

Technically, you'll be using a Nikon sensor. Nikon got first dibs.

It's OK dude, Sony makes the sensor and the body.
I don't care.
I can use my lenses and take pictures.
Is that not what it's all about?

This is the true 5D2 successor we landscape and studio photographers have all been waiting for. Best-in-class still-image IQ, with no compromises and no superfluous body size. And, even with the Metabones adapter, it should still AF better than the 5D2...

LOL in all fairness not really. Reports are coming in that the AF on a metabones adapter is pretty slow, comparable to live view focus.

Which is still better than the 5D2's peripheral points.

At least live view focusing is spot-on accurate...
