It is the lens that is giving way, we all know the Nex-7 Sensor is phenomenal and probably one of the best sensors to date...but it needs glass to resolve no matter how good the sensor is...so larger diameter lens would definitely help the Nex and A7 series...distortion correction is a killer of IQ...

IF the Nex-7 would have had the same light as the A7r and EM1 it would have helped as well...it didn't plain and simple...

You're not comparing like sizes and getting fooled by the Oly processing.  The NEX-7 image is resolving more detail.  If you need iron-clad confirmation, try doing a spectral analysis on the two images.  The NEX-7 will have much higher spatial bandwidth.

I would hesitate to make any conclusion on this comparison, but if I had to, I'd say the Oly is soft.
