So here's the debate... Which do you think will perform better? (Don't count battery life) and also note that BOTH don't have image stabilization. Which would you prefer and why? No fanboys please...

1) image quality
2) noise
3) color depth
4) sharpness

Canon 5D M3 with the 24-70 L f/2.8

OR

Sony A7r with the 24-70 Zeiss f/2.8 with LA-EA4
(Reviews say that the LA-EA4 auto focusing speed surpass the a99 autofocus speed with the phase section auto focus SLT mirror)
