I never understood side by side comparisons of the same picture. Different equipment will give different results. the picture on the left isnt worse than that on the right it just needs to be approached differently based on the equipment your using.
I was always told with cameras. Grab it, play with it. If it feels right in your hands and you like the layout thats what you use. Forget the fanboys and the statistics.
Same as Handguns. Two handguns sitting side by side locked onto a target will ALWAYS hit different places on the target because they are two completely different pieces manufactured by different people in different ways.
/ End Thread lol or not.
Comparisons makes sense when it comes to digitally based equipment that are supposed to produce the same final output, like a JPG or TIFF. In fact, analysis of said results are actually quite easy if you set up comparisons correctly, and use some of the software that analyzes images. When you make money from your results and want more business, you have a tendency to find the best value for the money you want to put into that equipment, and comparisons are the way to do it.
Since you bring up handguns, those in shooting competitions do exactly what is being done here with cameras, they run various comparisons between different guns, components on the guns, ammo, etc. Don't try to make out like that is any different with those passionate about shooting guns. When you make money from your photography, you are now in competition. If you are just a hobbyist, then sure, just get what feels good.
