I can't tell you which camera these samples came from (could be a digital Rebel for all I know -on both sides- and you are really pulling our leg :)), but the right-hand images appear sharper to me. As I commented in another thread, asking an end-viewer to compare images from different cameras is not useful other than as a parlor trick. Some will be fooled into drawing a conclusion from such a comparison. The best comparison of two systems is in the hands of the individual shooter since how to present an image in its final state to the viewer is his/her perogative anyway. A multitude of conclusions can be expected then.

Although I understand your intent, I wish you had not equalized the color and contrast. Sort of obscures the usefulness of the comparison and why I used the term "appear" above.
