So much whining on the net about the lens and then it gets a better score than canikon rivals.

Before you go out and celebrate, please look at the resolution of the two sensors used to test the two lenses that you are comparing.

I've compared the Sony FE 24-70 (scores 25 on 36MP A7R) with the Nikon 24-85 (scores 21 on 36MP D800) and Nikon 24-70 (scores 28 on 36MP D800)

When I look at the Nikon 24-85 and 24-70 on the 24MP D600 they score 21 and 27 respectively, so no great change.  The perceptual sharpness scores remain unchanged on 14P and 15P respectively.

Based on this I expect the Sony 24-70 to get a score of 24 or 25 on the 24MP A7 - i.e no great change.

I suspect this is because with zoom lenses on 24MP upwards sensors, resolution is lens limited not sensor limited.
