The A6000 may outperform both in these regards.

Correct and I am thinking the A7 would do better as well with the 24Mp Sensor as opposed to the 36Mp A7r sensor?

I think the A7 with 24-70 would be a better match?


Do click on original - dpreview 'previews' really mangle the image IQ...

Those look great Henry, I was really looking for the 24mm end of the 24-70 to be good like the 12-40, but just doesn't pan out that way...center is way more than sharp enough though for sure...

I think that the A7 is much easier on lenses - especially RF. I get great results with many legacy and RF lenses. The A7r seems to be pushing things a bit, especially in corners (with RF).

Below is the OM24 on the A7, it may not be perfect, but it is impressive none the less:

I use it with a tilt-adapter, and get pretty interesting results: Note, this image could have had more DOF, but the 'falling back' feeling has been remedied. The sky is purple shifting due to the tilt on a 'standard' lens:
