5D3 vs A7R with respective 35mm lenses

Just did a quick test between two sets earlier today, 5DIII with Canon 35/2.0 IS against Sony A7R with FE 35/2.8 on tripod, AF in front of the school building, focus point on the door number 10 above the door, 2-sec timer, auto metering, auto WB with aperture f2.8, 4.0, 5.6, 8.0, 16 and 22 respectively. Default/zero setting in LR5, camera neutral.

Here are side by side comparison at f/4.0 at 100% cropped size. I am pretty impressed by A7R resolution and FE 35 sharpness. Even at 100% cropped size, A7R set can match to 5D3 per-pixel sharpness but absolutely resolves more.

A complete set of test photos in all apertures can be found in https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4tNPhTNWSf3NWRHMXE3NnJTMjg&usp=sharing




And A7R set is much smaller/lighter (1285g vs 585g) but 35/2.0 IS is one stop faster with 4-stop 'IS', much useful in low-light hand-held photos.
