Im shocked, my tiny Sony NEX 5R delivers better pics than my 7D?
Oct 7, 2013

I just bought myself a little Sony NEX 5R to carry around in my pocket. I was pleased with the results and then compared the shots with similar lenses from Canon mounted on my 7D. I was shocked to find that the Sony delivered better results. I compared the Canon 15-85mm to the Sony 16-50mm and the Canon 40mm to the Sigma Sony fit 30mm. Perhaps not the ideal comparison but I found the Sony performed consistently better quality wise across various aperture settings as well and as it is so much easier to carry it wherever I go I feel almost tempted to retire my 7D. Have a look at the shots and judge for yourself (reduced the Canon shots slightly in Photoshop to match the 16mp sizes of the NEX, but I don't think that had any effect on the results):
