Re: It really depends which lens you compare with.

Comparing the standard zoom the difference isn't that big. Ditto for the F1.4 vs F1.8 prime.,487.393,ha,t

That the Panasonic lens here is one stop faster is irrelevant- you still get shorter DOF at will on the Sony by one stop (F4) and the sensor being bigger, you get at least 2 stops better ISO, so you can afford to have one stop less in that aperture. In fact, the Sony is still as a system faster light wise.

At least 2 stops better ISO?

A99 has light-robbing SLT. Check D600 and D800 performance if you want an idea how the A7 and A7R perform, as they are likely using the same (or better) sensors.

Perhaps not 2 stops, but 1.5 stops at least, which is quite significant.
