Each has different problems

Despite being a RAW conversion the Nikon has diffraction on the skylight, soft focus at the edge of the lens, and distortion from being an extreme wide-angle, which I don't think is fair in itself.

It also has relatively less challenging - for the compression - geometrical shapes, and NO atmospheric haze.

The Canon has too little depth of field, a lot of atmospheric diffraction and is an out-of-camera jpeg. The tree shapes and variations are bigger challenges for compression than books. It's also covering a focal distance of MILES instead of yards.

Personally, I'd hope BOTH cameras were capable of better.

Certainly not blown away.
