I don't know that this picture clears anything up but you might want to give it a try. I set my NEX to f11. Counter intuitively I shot it at 23mm instead of 50mm and then cropped. 18mm probably would have been better. The short focal length gives a smaller picture but also more DOF. The NEX has plenty of pixels for cropping so you might as well use them.

It's hard to tell what's happening with your spring because the angle relative to the light has changed slightly between the G11 and the NEX, but I agree you should be able to get a sharper picture from the NEX.
