DxO just showed the 800E (96) still has better sensor performance than the a7r (95).

DxO says those scores are essentially the same allowing for unit variation and measurement error. They are so close that DxO says they are likely the same basic sensor.

The only way Sony Imaging could have a better sensor mousetrap would be to pay Sony Semiconductor for exclusive use of a novel sensor. But Nikon, Sony & Toshiba have a cooperative relationship w.r.t. sensor design (and probably much cross-licensed IP) so that's not likely.

Fair enough... but still a me-too result, and one cannot catch a market leader with a me-too result.
